Experience Your Best Florida Vacation
The Sunshine State is about more than Mickey Mouse. The world outside the Magic Kingdom casts its own spells with candy-colored Art Deco hotels, pearly white beaches, and a wide variety of flora and fauna.
With highlights ranging from the manmade (Walt Disney World) to the all-natural (Everglades National Park), Florida can do no wrong as a destination spot. Its miles of coastline, endless summers and affordable, kid-friendly hotels, mean that it's bound to be on your list of vacation spots at least once. Let Orbitz help you plan your trip, starting with the best time to go, the top 10 attractions and insider tips on all things related to Florida travel.
To a Floridian, cold is any temperature that dips below 70 degrees. Accustomed to two climates -- hot and hotter -- the locals don't waste the sunshine, but those not familiar with the humidity and tropical temps should stay away during certain times of the year.
Weather-wise, the mildest seasons are fall, winter and early spring. However, with those cooler temps come the crowds, especially in cities such as Miami and Orlando, a huge draw for spring breakers and snow birds. Summer is a staple for families en route to the theme parks.
Hurricane season officially covers the period between June and November, but the state has seen storms hit outside these months.
Some Florida beaches outlaw public drinking; an exception is Madeira Beach. You can thank me when you're sipping a bottle of Corona in your bikini.
This might just be Florida's most quirky bar: ICEBAR Orlando. Nowhere else in Florida will you get to don a thermal cape just to drink vodka -- chilled, of course -- in a setting where even the bar stools are made out of ice.
Pelican Hotel on Ocean Drive
For an offbeat, but still highly stylized, South Beach experience, check in at the Pelican Hotel on Ocean Drive. Created by Diesel Jeans, the hotel boasts theme rooms that will truly get you excited about what's behind the door. Executive Zebra, anyone?
Ichetucknee Springs State Park
Want to skip Disney World this year? Plan a trip to Ichetucknee Springs State Park, which is best explored by inner tube.
Blue Spring State Park
Even in 'winter time' the water temperature is still in the 70s in Blue Spring State Park, also a designated wildlife refuge for manatees.
