2014 Holidays in Florida: Something for Everyone

As we find ourselves stepping into spring, it's safe to say that 2014 is a year that's rolling on by quite fast. For those of us who have already sorted our travel plans for the remainder of the year, it's a good idea to look ahead to next year, in order to make the most of the deals that are available. Whether you're looking to have a family holiday, a romantic getaway or even a classic holiday with your mates, you'll want to spend your 2014 holidays in Florida.
When speaking about Florida, you simply have to begin by mentioning family-friendly Disney breaks. In Florida, you will be able to enjoy several theme parks owned by Disney in Orlando.
For starters, there's the classic and iconic Magic Kingdom Park, which can only be described as a fairytale for kids. Other parks include the Epcot Centre (where you can experience cultures from all over the world in one setting) and The Animal Kingdom (the world's largest animal themed park), which contains some of nature's most enigmatic creatures. For those who love a good splash, there are two aqua parks to choose from; Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon.
These are just a few of the many theme parks in the state; you'll also find Universal Studios and Sea World all within Orlando's limits.
Of course, all parents deserve a treat too and there are several retail outlet centres where you can purchase American and international goods for often very large discounts. In fact, everyday shopping fanatics flock to Sawgrass Mills, the largest shopping destination in all of Florida with over 350 discount retailers and a plethora of restaurants where you can stop and refuel before bagging yet another bargain.
While theme parks such as Disney World, Universal Studios and SeaWorld have always been huge tourist draws, they are not the only things that are worth visiting in Florida. In fact, there are many distinct regional areas that help to make this a very diverse state.
If you're looking to visit a unique holiday location where you can experience one of America's most famous nightlife scenes, there is no other place to visit besides Miami. This culturally rich city will greet you with heavy Cuban influences; and it's hotspot of South Beach will provide you with long stretches of sandy beaches, and a club and bar scene that spans across each and every party-goers' tastes.
Aside from a decadent party lifestyle and scenic beaches, you'll find that Miami certainly has much more to offer. With a vibrant and unique arts scene, you'll find several galleries and museums spread throughout the city where you can go and view cutting edge and contemporary art collected from all over the world.
Even if you're not keen to go partying and have the family with you, you'll find that Miami can provide entertainment for everyone with family-friendly attractions such as the Miami Children's Museum, the Miami Museum of Science and Zoo Miami.
If you're looking to simply relax, take in the sun and enjoy Florida's glorious climate, a visit to one of the Keys is a must. This archipelago of islands, which is connected to mainland Florida by public highway, will provide you with the opportunity to go fishing, scuba diving, boating, sailing and kayaking.
Key West is the southernmost tip of the US and visiting this particular island will allow you the chance to have all the luxury that you could find on a Caribbean island without having to feel isolated from the rest of the world.
As you plan your journey, remember that while Florida remains warm throughout the whole of the year, temperatures peak in June, July and August. The best time of year to visit is during the spring and autumn, when you will be able to enjoy the heat rather than experiencing excessively high temperatures that are common in the summer.
Whether you'd like to take your family to experience the magic of Disney or if you simply want to see and experience the Florida Keys that the Beach Boys sing so tenderly about, you'll find that a 2014 holiday in Florida will bring you everything you could possibly want out of a holiday. Get all the benefits that planning ahead can bring and start dreaming up next year's Florida break today.
