10 Best Places to Visit in Florida – Travel Video

When most people think of Florida, they think
of sunshine, theme parks, orange juice and alligators. But this former Spanish colony, which became
the 27th state to enter the Union, is much more than that. Bordered by the Atlantic Ocean on one side
and the Gulf of Mexico on the other, it has mile upon mile of white sand beaches. Its moderate climate makes it a popular tourist
destination all year round. Here’s a look at the best places to visit
in Florida. Number 10. Panama City Beach. Panama City Beach on the Florida panhandle
offers 27 miles of white sand beaches on the Emerald Coast. The beach is a popular destination for residents
of the southern United States as well as tens of thousands of high school and college students
on spring break. Besides having fun in the sun in the emerald
green waters, this town of just over 12,000 permanent residents offers sports fishing
on the gulf, plenty of golfing, marine parks including one for alligators, amusement and
water parks …in short, something for everyone in the family. Number 9. Naples. Naples may have had rustic beginnings, but
today this Gulf of Mexico city is one of the wealthiest cities in the United States, with
houses selling for more than $40 million. As on Sanibel and Captiva Islands, development
along the shoreline has been kept residential. It got its name because the bay it’s located
on was said to be prettier than the Bay of Naples in Italy. Besides its beautiful city beach, the nearby
wildlife refuges make it a popular tourist destination. The city also has vibrant arts and shopping
districts. Number 8. Sanibel Island. Sanibel Island is located just off Fort Myers
in the Gulf of Mexico. It is connected to the mainland by a causeway. It is known as a quiet, natural travel destination,
well-suited for families. Wildlife refuges take up more than half of
this long narrow island, whose beaches are also popular as places to hunt for shells. This island of less than 7,000 permanent residents
may have harbored pirates in the days of yore, if local legends are to be believed. Aside from beachcombing and looking for wildlife,
attractions include a highly-rated historical museum, a lighthouse and an arts center. Number 7. Fort Lauderdale. No longer the Spring Break destination of
popular imagination, Fort Lauderdale is today a sophisticated cultural center with an increasingly
upmarket social scene. Located on the Atlantic Ocean about 23 miles
north of Miami Beach it is also known as the “Venice of America” due to its expansive
canal system. The city has an impressive tourist infrastructure
with plenty of hotels, golf courses, marinas and museums. The city’s Port Everglades is one of the
busiest cruise-ship ports in the world, with megaships departing daily for the Caribbean,
Mexico and beyond. The most popular section of the city beach
is called “The Strip” with eating and drinking establishments that run along the
land side of the beach road. Number 6. Clearwater Beach. Boasting miles of white sandy beaches, Clearwater
Beach is separated by the city of Clearwater by the Intracoastal Waterway. USA Today readers in 2013 named it Florida’s
Best Beach Town. Besides laying in the white sand and swimming
in the clear water there are also many activities offered such as fishing, sailing, kayaking,
and dolphin tours. Clearwater Beach is also a happening place,
with a variety of events taking place throughout the year. The Philadelphia Phillies hold their spring
training camp here while the Clearwater Jazz Festival, takes place in October. Or visitors can take in the weekly sunsetting
festival at Pier 60, a sports fishing pier. Number 5. Everglades. One of Florida’s best natural treasures,
the Everglades feature a unique combination of ecosystems that include swamps, sub-tropical
jungles, saw-grass prairies and the largest mangrove complex in the Western Hemisphere. Much of the Everglades are protected within
the Everglades National Park and provide shelter to a wide variety of birds, fish and reptiles,
including endangered species like the American crocodile and the Florida panther. From the Gulf Coast Visitor Center, visitors
can arrange boat tours to the Ten Thousand Islands, a labyrinth of mangrove islands. Other visitor centers offer ranger-led tours
and programs. An air boat tour is one of the most exciting
ways to experience the Everglades. Number 4. Tampa Bay Area. The Tampa Bay area, on the Gulf of Mexico,
includes Tampa Bay, a large natural harbor and the cities of Tampa and St. Petersburg. Tampa is home to the NFL’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Family-oriented activities include Busch Gardens,
a theme park said to have Florida’s best roller coaster rides as well as a zoo dedicated
to animals from Africa’s Serengeti Plain. As for beachcombing, St. Pete Beach can’t
be beat. It was named the best beach in the United
States and fifth in the world by TripAdvisor readers in 2012 because of its white sand
beaches and clear water. Number 3. Orlando. Orlando is theme-park city, having more theme
parks than any place else in the world. There’s Walt Disney World, Epcot Center,
Universal Studios, SeaWorld and Gator Park, to name a few, all of which bring 51 million
visitors a year to this central Florida city of 2 million people. This Sunbelt city doesn’t get hit by hurricanes
as much as other parts of the state, which makes it a great place to visit in Florida. One of American’s most visited cities, Orlando
is also home to the University of Central Florida, which has the second largest college
enrollment in the United States. Number 2. Miami. One of the most vibrant cities in the USA,
Miami is best known for its Latin culture and sizzling nightlife. Located in southeastern Florida off the coast
of the Atlantic Ocean, Miami is also a major port city managing the world’s largest number
of passenger cruise ships. Attracting tourists from all over the planet,
Miami is a melting pot of ethnic cultures with a wide array of exciting attractions
and activities. One of Miami’s main draws is its sunny beaches
that range from family friendly to party scenes. Across the bay from Miami on a barrier island
is Miami Beach, known for its Art Deco architecture and glamorous South Beach. Number 1. Florida Keys. The Florida Keys are a 120 mile long chain
of tropical islands curving around the base of the Florida peninsula, connected to the
mainland by a series of bridges. The most spectacular bridge, the Seven Mile
Bridge in the Lower Keys, has been frequently used as a location for films including True
Lies and Fast 2 Furious. US Highway 1, the “Overseas Highway” runs
from Key Largo, Islamadora, Marathon, Lower Keys and finally to Key West, the most distant
and most famous of the Florida Keys.

    If you want to come to Miami to experience culture, don’t go to “glamorous” south beach. Go to Hialeah. Miami is crowded, hot and humid, and is full of drivers who don’t know their right from their left. But ya know, we have nightclubs I guess. But if you’re under 21 it’s not like there’s much to do. I don’t ever go to the beach, it’s dirty and full of tourists. Just… don’t come here, we are so full already.

  • Fight_me_ Boo says:

  • William Medina says:

    We just went snorkeling at devil's den. It is an amazing place, a must see if you want to do something that is a once in a lifetime event.

  • Nice for a week vacation,beautiful beaches and sunsets. Not a good place to live. High rents,low pay,to hot to go out in the daytime and to many bugs at night.

  • Stu's Florida Adventures says:

    Yes its obvious someone sitting in another part of the world put this together. Not a Floridian. Lol…

  • If you are coming to florida in the summer months plan on drinking water constantly or you will dehydrate. Going outside in the summer months you will be out there about one minute and totally feel clammy and you will start wiping the sweat from your face immediately. The beaches are white sand and beautiful but make sure you have an umbrella because you will need it and use plenty of sunblock and put it on all the time. Orlando has gotten so busy its really over crowded but still a lot of fun. Plan on longggggggg waiting lines at the disney attraction and make sure you get the fast pass or you will go on about four rides in one day. Don't go near miami. I have lived in florida for many years and I go through it going to the keys, which are beautiful by the way, but no way would i stop there. Its run over with cubans and spanish is their first language down there. The winter months are hard driving around because of the tourists and they have no idea where they are going and cause many traffic accidents. If you want to see and hear about heritage then make a point to go to st augustine. There is a trolley there that shows you and explains everything and you can get off when you want. So much to see there its a shame they did not put st augustine on that list. Do some research and look up the places that are quaint fishing villages and where the real southern history is and there is your real fun

  • eduard gevorgyan says:

    Когда большинство людей думают о Флориде, они думают о солнце, тематических парках, апельсиновом соке и аллигаторах. Но эта бывшая испанская колония, которая стала 27-м штатом, вступившим в Союз, гораздо больше. С одной стороны граничит с Атлантическим океаном, а с другой – с Мексиканским заливом. Он имеет милю на милю пляжей с белым песком. Умеренный климат делает его популярным туристическим направлением круглый год. Обзор лучших мест для посещения во Флориде.

  • You rank Clearwater Beach by itself and then later rank the Tampa Bay area. This just in, Clearwater Beach is also part of the Tampa Bay area. Generally speaking it includes, St. Pete, St. Pete Beach, Clearwater, Clearwater Beach, Bradenton, Sarasota, and that cesspool across the bay called Tampa.

    Perhaps you could have consolidated CWB with St. Pete and then you would have had a spot to includ St. Augustine. Also, you missed a lot of pretty neat spots not on either coast which tourists and visitors to the Plastic Kingdom in Borlando don't even know exist.

  • Naples has everything that I need in the winter. Clean , safe and unaffordable. That keeps out most of the riftraff

  • don't go to Florida!!!! most rude ass/ prejudice people eva!!!! who can't say what they really mean "bless their hearts" just sayn

  • just don't come unless you wanna die from a heat stroke and get eaten by and alligator and you wanna get in a car crash cause all the old people are going 5 mph feel free

  • King Dilly Dilly says:

    wheres Jacksonville? I know we have a sucky football team but, we're the biggest city land wise in the Continental US.

  • Snaider Duarte says:

    You can tell the narrator had never being in Italy 🇮🇹…. compare Florida with Naples and Venice ? She’s crazyyyyy

  • Antonio Martinez says:

    I currently live in beautiful San Diego that happens to have the best climate anywhere. I lived in Miami for approximately 35 years, and the only thing that I miss is the Cuban food, the gorgeous Latin women and the fishing. Miami is also the best looking town in Florida, the architecture, landscape and infrastructure is head and shoulders above all other places in the state.

  • LMAO – they're only showing the "white" parts and beaches. Go to Tampa thinking it's all fun and games and see what happens when you get on the wrong side of the tracks lol. It's fucking HOT here – and country as hell. You'll see a lot of confederate flags and many many speed traps. As a Floridian there are some places I would never go to. Like, I know my brown ass ain't got no business being down in the swaps. Fuck around and get disappeared on one of those backroads.

  • What about Daytona Beach and St Augustine. Daytona is the only beach that you can drive on .
    You left that out of your top 5 and is the Sun and Surf capital of the world.

  • Welcome to the SHIT HOLE. Bring a full wallet because they give it to you with a smile and Thank You for patronizing a slave labor state.

  • General Terms Jr says:

    It is beautiful! And if you love snorkeling, you can even have fun feeding the huge variety of sharks with yourself.

  • Orlando number 3, really? It’s the most visited destination in the United States, having surpassed New York City. I think it deserves the numer 1 spot
