Things to do

Activities

What to do during your stay in Florida vacation rentals

With gorgeous sandy beaches all around this peninsula of a state, you’ll find plenty of opportunity to swim and surf in the Atlantic. You can venture out into the ocean yourself with a guided tour and experience the thrill of a speedboat, a classy riverboat dinner, and witness dolphins in spots like Clearwater Bay. Don’t let the fun end when the sun goes down, though. A host of cities in Florida, like Miami and Panama City, have a vibrant nightlife with dancing and nightclubs for you to take part in.

Outdoor activities

Outdoor fun near Florida vacation homes

Florida is filled with diverse environments and an array of unique wildlife to explore during your stay. Vacation homes give you an opportunity to enjoy wildlife-viewing sites along the Great Florida Birding Trail or to explore rare sea life in Gulf Islands National Seashore of St. Mark’s National Wildlife Refuge. The state parks in Florida are also popular for camping, swimming, hiking, picnicking, canoeing, kayaking, and biking. In the water, you can experience coastal dives in coral reefs near the Keys, shipwreck trails along the Panhandle, and the diverse environment of the Everglades.

Weather

Best time to travel to Florida vacation homes

Bring your sunscreen, because in Florida, it’s summer all year long. In northern Florida, you’ll find a humid subtropical climate, but southern Florida is a true tropical paradise. In the south, winter lows don’t usually descend beyond 60 degrees, so travel in the winter months to still enjoy summer fun. It can get hot in the summer, averaging around 80 degrees in the Keys with highs in the lower 90s. It also rains significantly more in the summer, so a winter getaway is perfect if you want to enjoy warm and sunny days.

Natural features

Explore the tropical paradise of Florida

The ideal of Florida is a sandy beach with clear ocean waves softly crashing the shore. Palm fronds blow next to a comfortable lounge chair as the sun shines on this earthly paradise. Many places in Florida, like the Florida Keys in the south, truly are stunningly picturesque. In the surrounding water, you can find bottlenose dolphins, pilot whales, and North Atlantic right whales. In fact, Florida’s east coast is the only known calving area for the northern right whale. You might also see the Florida scrub jay, an impressive blue bird only found in Florida.

Food and drink

Sample unique cuisine in Florida

Though many Florida restaurants offer the typical cuisine of the United States, you can also find unique fusions of Caribbean, Mexican, Cuban, Colombian, Brazilian, and Puerto Rican cuisine. This eclectic blend includes exotic spices, such as lemongrass, red curry, scallions, and ginger, along with local tropical fruits like mangos, papayas, plantains, coconuts, and citrus fruits. Like the islands, Florida typically includes seafood and poultry in recipes. Whatever your taste, you can find excellent Floridian food in restaurants near your vacation rental.
