How To Get Active In Florida

When most people think of Florida they think of the big amusement and adventure parks that are such a big draw for a lot of visitors.

But there is another side to Florida which is just as spectacular and it comes by way of the myriad of National Parks in the state. If you want to see the real side of Florida then this is as close as you’ll get to it � and it provides a refreshing change if you fancy a day away from the roller coasters and movie theme parks.

The Biscayne National Park is an outstanding place to visit, located within a stone’s throw of Miami. This park gives you a unique insight into the world of coral reefs and colourful fish. Whether you want to relax and take in the sights or have a go at diving to see the sights up close, you’re guaranteed to enjoy all that this park has to offer.

If you are planning on visiting the Kennedy Space Center during your stay make sure you also visit the Canaveral National Seashore, which offers a wide range of outdoor activities in an attractive refuge for many different animals. You can also take advantage of regular events which are arranged to help visitors make the most of their time at the seashore.

But perhaps the most famous example of nature in Florida is the Everglades. These have been made famous by many movies and television programmes, but seeing them in reality is far better than anything you have seen on your television screen.

The area is subtropical, which alone makes it unique to this part of America. It’s famous for its crocodiles � which you may well see during your visit � but there is plenty more to enjoy here too, including fishing and bird watching. There are several ways to see the Everglades and you can even go camping there if you really want to get close to nature.

The De Soto National Memorial Park is another one worth visiting purely for the stunning nature trails that take you right into the heart of the Floridian wildlife. You can also take part in fishing and bird watching among other activities.

Flights to Florida are easy to book and, if you work out where you want to visit before you book your accommodation, you can make sure you are staying close to many of the best sights that Florida has to offer. This will save you plenty of time on travelling from place to place.

Wherever you end up staying you won’t be too far away from at least one National Park. That’s the beauty of Florida � it has more surprises to offer than you might think.
