Each year, thousands of people throughout the United
States and abroad travel to Florida to experience its pristine beaches and warm weather. The
state is surrounded by ocean on three sides, which translates
to many different possibilities when it comes to beach
vacations in Florida. Whether you prefer active Florida
beach vacations complete with an array of bars, nightclubs,
and volleyball competitions, or you prefer secluded Florida
beaches where you can observe nature, there are enough
kinds of beach vacations in Florida to make everyone happy.
Many people say that the best Florida beach vacations
are spent in South Beach, Miami. South Beach contains miles
of white sand beaches, manicured parks with palm trees
and walking trails, as well as Miami's most exclusive
bars and restaurants. One particularly interesting aspect
of South Beach is its pastel colored art deco buildings
that are often illuminated by bright neon lights. Another
aspect of South Beach that makes it the spot for the best
Florida vacations are its hotels and resorts. The area
has a number of hotels and resorts featuring pools, spas,
restaurants, and private golf
courses. Although there are cheap Florida hotels throughout
the state, you probably won't find very many in
the South Beach area.
If you prefer more low-key and affordable Florida beach vacations, head to the beaches of Orlando. Orlando Florida beaches offer clean water and sea shores that are ideally suited for building sand castles or relaxing on the beach. Many of the beach parks have shower facilities, picnic grounds, and playgrounds.
Some of the best Florida Beach vacations are spent in Palm Beach and West Palm
Beach. These two towns are well-known for their designer
boutiques and acres of beautifully landscaped beach parks.
Palm Beach is a popular vacation destination for famous
politicians and celebrities wishing to escape the cold
weather of New
York and other east coast destinations.
If you're looking for a quiet and secluded beach
that is free from development, head to Caspersen Beach
in the Venice Beach area.
The beach is a popular place to look for prehistoric shark
teeth and other fossilized remains of sea life. Each spring,
the beach hosts a Sharks Tooth Festival where local fossil
collectors display their collections and street vendors
sell fresh seafood and other food. The water at Caspersen
beach is calm enough for swimmers of all ability levels.
The best Florida beach vacations are the ones that offer
something for your entire family or group of friends.
Cities such as Panama Beach and St
Augustine have many options for entertainment, such
as museums, shopping centers, and cultural attractions,
as well as fantastic beaches.
If you're looking into Florida beach vacations,
you're probably wondering when to go. The short
answer is, there is no ideal time to travel to Florida. Weather in Florida remains
between seventy-five and eighty-five degrees nearly all
year. If you're concerned about the hurricanes that
have ravaged the coast lines in recent years, it's
best to avoid Florida during hurricane season in June
and July. The majority of people take beach vacations
in Florida during the winter, when most other places in
the United States are experiencing cold temperatures.
