There is just something about Florida that makes it
a little extra unique. Visitors flock to this southern
haven in large numbers seeking out that refreshing feel
that a Florida
vacation gives them. Charming and historic towns

cities like Miami and Orlando offer excitement, thrills and extraordinary dining and
shopping. Among Florida's cities and towns,
plenty of lodging options abound, and couples looking
