If you’re a retiree looking for a laidback lifestyle, a family looking for an active vacation or a college student looking for a fun-filled spring break, you’ll find both pleasant and exciting destinations in the warm-weather state of Florida. Spend a week or a lifetime exploring Florida’s offerings.
Start with beaches. The state has 825 miles (1,328 kilometers) of sand and surf on the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico. Exciting Miami Beach, family-friendly Fort Lauderdale and quiet Sanibel Island are among the many great spots for swimming and sunbathing. In Daytona Beach, drive your car on the beach sands or watch the annual Daytona 500 auto race at Daytona International Speedway.
Celebrate a family event at one or more of Florida’s exciting theme parks: Disney’s Magic Kingdom, SeaWorld, Busch Gardens, Universal Studios and many more. Make a trip to the Space Coast to learn about the exciting world of space exploration.
Florida is so perfectly suited for golf that Tiger Woods built a home on Jupiter Island with a four-hole practice facility. You probably can’t play there, but you can find nearly 1,400 courses across the state. Try inexpensive public courses or top-of-the-line Streamsong. Splurge for the famous TPC at Sawgrass with its challenging island green.
Visit Florida’s three national parks. Biscayne has mangroves, the Florida Keys and coral reefs with manatee, crocodiles, sea turtles and peregrine falcons. Take a boat to Dry Tortugas to see a Civil War fort and shipwrecks. The Everglades is a vast wilderness with more than 30 protected species in its mangrove ecosystem.
Florida has cultural attractions too. The Miami Museum of Contemporary Art is an exciting and growing attraction with studio art and performance art. Also in Miami, you’ll find several zoos and wildlife areas, over 20 museums, professional teams in five sports and numerous Spanish-language events and attractions.
The state of Florida welcomes more than 90 million visitors annually. You could be one of them.

The Advantages of a Road Trip in Florida
One of the best things about taking road trips in Florida is how many incredible options you have for unforgettable adventures. A Florida Keys road trip might take you on an oceanfront journey full of activities like fishing, snorkeling, and scuba diving, ending in Key West with its famous sunset celebrations, museums, and bars. Or you might spend a weekend in Miami with its trendy nightlife, beaches, art galleries, and world-class hotels. From one magic city to another, you can pick up cheap deals on Miami car rentals and head out to try the outdoor activities in Orlando. Orlando is home to some of the world’s best theme parks like Walt Disney World, Universal Studios, and the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. You can find discounted rates on the best hotels in Orlando and cheap car rentals in Orlando to make your road trip adventure even more affordable.
Florida road trip planner
The length of time you can spend on your road trip will determine how far you can go. A Florida road trip 1-week itinerary will be different than a Florida road trip 10 days long. Miami, the Everglades, the Florida Keys, South Gulf Coast, and Tampa Bay are the most popular stops on everyone’s road trip plans. And you’ll save when booking your car rental and hotel all in one place with Expedia. You can score even more discounts on your highway getaway by bundling car and hotel bookings together.
Weekend road trips in Florida
Taking Florida weekend road trips is the best way to spend those Saturdays and Sundays. Chart your own course through this energetic and stunning state. You could get a Daytona Beach vacation rental, or do those Florida Keys activities you’ve been wanting to try. Now is the perfect time for that weekend road trip you’ve been dreaming of because Expedia makes it easy to turn dreams into reality with discounted rates on all the best hotels in Tampa and the fabulous Florida Key hotels. For even deeper discounts, you can bundle your hotel and car bookings to get both for less.
Places to stop on a Road Trip to Florida
When taking a road trip to Florida, no matter which direction you’re coming from, we don’t want you to miss a thing. Before entering the state, you might want to hit Savannah or New Orleans. And once you’re in Florida, Pensacola, Panama City Beach, Tallahassee, and Jacksonville’s beaches might be first of your list. And we make it easy to get the ideal road-trip-ready cars for your weekend trips to Florida. You can book cheap Dollar car rentals before making your way to the sunshine state to have the ultimate freedom to stop wherever you want on-route.
If you’re traveling from afar as part of your Florida package deal, fly into Orlando, pick up your rental car at the airport and head to your hotel. Your weekend getaway starts in Downtown Orlando, with plenty of cheap, and even free, things to do.
Transportation: It’s possible to explore central Orlando using public transportation, but when it comes to reaching sights outside Downtown, we recommend you have your own wheels for maximum convenience.
We recommend exploring Downtown Orlando for your first evening—it’s fun and light on the wallet at night, with plenty of budget eateries and hole-in-the-wall bars. Check out Orlando Brewing for its free brewery tours most nights.
Orlando locals flock to Cocoa Beach on the Space Coast. An hour’s drive east, it’s the closest beach to the city.
Instead of going back to central Orlando, consider driving to Universal CityWalk, just 20 minutes southwest of Downtown Orlando. Admission and parking are free after 6 p.m., so you can make the most of your budget and spend your vacation savings in shopping, dining and entertainment across the 30-acre complex. If you’re heading back to the airport, it’s about a 30-minute drive from here.
Nothing to complain about. Plan on going back next month.
The Hotel itself is beautiful. My room however was missing a lamp shade, and there were Cheerios all over the floor. For the price I was willing to pay, that was unacceptable. Other than that our 2 night stay was nice
This is such a nice hotel and as long as the price remains what I paid, I will be coming back here again and again.
Understanding we are just getting started and under Covid-19 regulations, the staff did a good job in having the room clean, elevators and common areas clean. Extra steps were taken to limit anyone's exposure. The pools and pool area had a good bit of traffic but not crowded. The beach, as always, ...
The entire facility and Beach was breath taking! The food and drinks were awesome. The only problem we had was the smoke alarm in our room went off by itself for an hour. My husband and I called the front desk 4 times but no one ever came. We finally figured out how to take the front part off to ...
My family with small children love being right on the beach and having the splash pad, pools, and next door lazy river. Breakfast couldn't be better overlooking the gulf while watching dolphins play. The only downsides are the AC units in the room are LOUD and I'm a light sleeper and my kids get ...
