Great Florida Vacation Spots

Florida Vacation Spots SunsetJust so you know, I won’t be covering Florida places to party hearty (except by making a general reference).  Well, I do include Key West, but that’s a special exception.

I’ll be focusing on the smaller attractions, vacation spots like the Keys, as well as places of beauty and wonder around this great state of Florida (although any Florida vacation site isn’t complete without Disney and Universal).

It’s the Florida you knew had to be here somewhere!  And there are plenty of wonderful Florida vacation spots to explore, from the ordinary to the extraordinary.

I take trips around the state from time to time, visiting places both old and new (and taking new photos along the way).  I am continually amazed at what Florida has to offer. I hope you’ll be just as delighted as you read these pages.
