What to do
Florida is more than a theme park destination - although the theme parks do attract a lot of visitors.
We have included some information for those who like golf and those who like to shop so this page is dedicated to those of you who want to do something different when you visit.
Florida is a diverse state - there is lots of sunshine and lots of rain - however the rain usually only lasts a short time and the heat of the sun will soon dry you out. The winter is usually quite temperate and the Orlando area is usually one of the safest places to be during a hurricane because it rarely gets any of the storm's effects. (Let's hope that fact remains true for a lot longer!)
There are also lots of smaller, local airports available to self flyers - so if you fancy a flying visit - this might be the rental villa for you!
Visit some of the stunning nature parks - something a bit different:
