Florida – where dreams come true

A morning meeting with Donald Duck, an afternoon ride on a hair-raising rollercoaster, an evening dip in turquoise seas – just another normal day in Florida. Hailed as the Sunshine State for its year-round warmth, this is a land of citrus orchards and coral reefs, sparkling beaches and family attractions galore. Walt Disney World is often top of the bill, Universal Studios and the Kennedy Space Center following with rides and rockets, the gorgeous Everglades snapping – literally, thanks to the crocs – at their heels. It's no wonder Florida holiday rentals are primed for families, touting pools and gardens and multiple rooms.

Soaking up rays and waters in Florida

From the palm-topped Keys in the south to the powdery sands of Pensacola on the Panhandle in the north, Florida is a mosaic of gorgeous seascapes. The Gulf Coast is the land of spring break pads and lonely barrier islands, all washed by warm waves and home to countless dolphin tours for glimpses of bottlenoses out at sea. The Atlantic has the glitz and glamour of Miami Beach and South Beach, where Art Deco clubs swing till sun-up. Florida holiday rentals for families tend to dot spots like Clearwater and Daytona, where piers and racing tracks only bolster the sunbathing.

Donald, Daffy, Potter and more in Florida

If there's one place in the US that's bound to leave the kids wide-eyed with wonder and screaming to go back, it's Florida. Orlando's a hotspot, laden with sprawling parks like Walt Disney World and Universal Studios, Epcot and Gatorland – think sightings of Cinderella's castle and rip-roaring rides that twist and turn, plunge and soar. Busch Gardens hides down in Tampa Bay with its splashing flumes and loop-de-loops. And then there's the Kennedy Space Center – hardly a theme park, but still cranking up the adrenaline with fire-belching rockets and tales of the cosmos.

Florida – The Sunshine State

The nickname's well deserved. Straddling both tropical and sub-tropical zones, this southern corner of the United States is always hot and steamy. The summers, from May to August, are the hottest of all, although torrential storms can also cross over from the Atlantic Hurricane Belt then. Things cool down a tad in autumn – September, October and November – before arrival of the winter sun that makes Florida holiday rentals such a steal between December and March.

Tropical treats in Florida

White sands run for mile upon mile around the Florida shores, ranging from the Panhandle beaches to the isles of the Mexican Gulf to the sunbathing stretches of Fort Lauderdale and Miami on the Atlantic. The southern Keys do a fine Caribbean impression – think swaying coconut palms and coral reefs where triggerfish and barracudas dart this way and that. Inland Florida is a different story. Low lying and verdant, it's home to the vast Everglades National Park. Whiz around on an airboat and you'll find snapping crocodiles, cottontail bobcats and misty mangroves and marshes.
