Make a holiday apartment in Avon Park your home away from home

Equidistant from both the Atlantic and Gulf Florida coasts, Avon Park holiday apartments provide a unique opportunity to see both sides of Florida. Also known as the City of Charm, HomeAway.co.uk has a huge range of holiday accommodation in Avon Park to choose from, nearly all with pool access. Merely an hour away from the splendid beaches of either coast, apartments and villas in Avon Park are also convenient for numerous central Florida theme and state parks, providing plenty to do from the excitement of thrill rides to the peacefulness of a nature walk.

Things to do

-Watersports: With so many lakes in the area, there really is no particular need to make the hour-long trip from your Avon Park holiday rental to the coast. Nearby Lake Kissimmee State Park hosts birdwatching, fishing, boating, kayaking, camping and hiking, as well as horse-riding and the Cow Camp: a fascinating living history site.

-Paynes Creek Historic State Park: For a little educational and historic contemplation, this nearby site marks the Paynes Creek Massacre. There are facilities for canoeing, kayaking and fishing, in addition to the visitors' centre and a museum that recreates life on the frontier at the time of the massacre.

-Beaches: The world famous Cocoa beach is but an hour's drive away from Avon Park rental accommodation, which puts you in the vicinity, of course, of Cape Canaveral. The beaches of Tampa Bay are similarly convenient in the other direction. There are also beaches available on some of the nearby lakes.

-Golf: With 13 golf courses in a 10 mile radius, Avon Park provides plenty of opportunity to hit the links. From the tight and challenging River Greens Golf Course, to the two championship courses at Highlands Ridge, there's a round for every budget and skill level.

-Kissimmee Prairie Preserve State Park: This park, fed by the river that creates the 4,000+ square mile Everglades, is 54,000 acres of lush prairie, very much reminiscent of the Midwest. 100 miles of dirt roads and trails offer the perfect opportunity for hiking, biking, horse riding and camping.

Weather in Avon Park

With so much water around, temperatures don't quite reach the extremes found in drier inland areas. The climate in Avon Park ranges from the low 20s Celsius in the short, mild winters to the mid 30s C during the protracted summers. Rain tends to fall mainly as quick thunderstorms during the summer, which means the city is an ideal year round destination.

Travel to Avon Park

There is a small executive airport in Avon Park, but the majority of visitors use Orlando International Airport or Tampa International Airport for access, 77 miles and 92 miles away, respectively. The best bet, as always, is to rent a car, but taxis are available if you don't find the cost prohibitive. There is no bus service of note, but Amtrak does have a station in Sebring, only 5 miles away. Being without a car in Florida, however, essentially leaves you stranded. The US is designed around the automobile, so it's best to stick with their plan.
