2. Orlando excels

Next stop, take stock of the many attractions Orlando has to offer. It may be known as the theme park capital of the world, and that’s true, but scratch a little deeper and you’ll find much more besides – it’s an epicenter for the arts.

Explore the cultural corridor and discover performing arts, museums, and gardens, then travel through the ages when you dine at Medieval Times. Lift off for the Kennedy Space Center, or whip-crack-away your way out to Fort Christmas Historical Park. Book your Orlando Holidays 2018, so you don’t miss out.

4. Everglades entice

Then immerse yourself in the subtropical wilderness of the Everglades. No trip to Florida would be complete without experiencing the wonders of this national park, which encompasses 1.5 million acres of wetlands.

This diverse ecosystem incorporates marshland, mangroves, woods of cypress and pine trees, and coastal prairie, and is home to 73 endangered or threatened species. Tours depart from Miami and Orlando, so you can fit a trip to the Everglades into your itinerary with ease; it’s a unique environment to behold, so don’t pass it by.
