Make a holiday villa in Floral City your home away from home

So named for its abundance of wild flowers, Floral City holiday villas are found in this rural slice of old Florida nestled in the middle of Withlacoochee State Forest. Surrounded by lakes and with the Everglades to the southeast and coastal nature preserves to the west, holiday accommodation in Floral City provides guests with a wonderful opportunity to discover Florida's flora and fauna. All Floral City villas come equipped with air-conditioning and satellite or cable TV, most have access to BBQ facilities, and many are convenient for golfing. A few select units are available on the waterfront.

Things to do

-Nature: In addition to the Tsala Apopka Lake chain bordering the city, Floral City rentals are also a great staging point for the Crystal River State Park, just a short drive away on the Gulf Coast, as is the Chassahowitzka National Wildlife Refuge. That said, guests need look no further afield than the surrounding Withlacoochee State Forest for nature trails and mountain biking.

-Watersports: Floral City holiday rentals have literally hundreds of lakes right on their doorsteps, making up the Tsala Apopka chain of lakes, great for fishing, swimming, kayaking and canoeing. Further afield, the coast offers plenty of marinas for charters and hires of the combustion-powered variety.

-Beaches: The Gulf Coast in this area doesn't offer much in the way of sandy beaches unless guests head further south to the Tampa Bay area. But this is well worth the hour's drive as some of the Gulf Coast beaches in this region are the among the best in the world. A closer inland option to get some sand between the toes is Lake Weir, about 30 miles northwest.

-Theme Parks: Orlando's relative proximity means the litany of theme parks it has become famous for are quite convenient at just over an hour's drive away. The big two are obviously Disney World and Universal Studios, but Sea World and Legoland are certainly worth a visit if time allows.

-Nightlife: Quiet, secluded, and laid-back, Floral City's nightlife consists primarily of stylish pubs and quaint taverns, promoting that 'old Florida' ambience many guests specifically come here for. For a wilder time, Orlando and Tampa are both just over an hour away.

Weather in Floral City

Florida has a subtropical climate, which primarily manifests itself as two fairly distinct seasons: the wet and the dry. The summer is the wet season, with most of the annual precipitation falling in frequent afternoon and evening thunderstorms. Temperatures during the summer top out in the mid-30°C range, but the significant humidity can make this more uncomfortable. The mild winter is the dry and high season, with temps often hitting the low-20s, reminiscent of a British summer.

Travel to Floral City

Floral City's relatively remote location means public transport is not an option, whereas fly/drive packages are the most efficient and cost effective way to go. Tampa International Airport is the nearest direct flight option at 65 miles away, while Orlando International Airport and Orlando-Sanford International Airport increase the range of airline choices at 84 miles away and 101 miles away respectively.
