Make a holiday villa in Holiday your home away from home

Holiday villas in Holiday provide a quiet retreat from the hurly-burly of the busy Tampa Bay area. As a suburb of one of the most populous metropolitan areas in Florida, Holiday apartments and villas place guests in the ideal location to enjoy the ease and facility of a huge city, yet also the quiet and tranquility of a rural town. All accommodation in Holiday comes air-conditioned to combat the hotter days of summer, and with laundry facilities to wash away the sand and salt from the nearby beaches. Some Holiday rentals have access to a pool and BBQ area, and most have dishwashers and DVD players.

Things to do

-Beaches: There are only a few small sandy beaches accessible from the mainland, generally on small keys attached by causeways. The bigger, better beaches are on the barrier islands. For public beaches accessible by boat, look to Anclote Key Preserve State Park. By road but further afield, there is the Honeymoon Island State Park.

-Watersports: The number of marinas on the Anclote river demonstrate the prevalence of boating in this area, and for accessing the barrier island beaches, they are almost a necessity. This, of course, also equates to plentiful fishing, waterskiing, and any other watersport charter.

-Sports: In keeping with Tampa Bay's size, there are several professional teams to watch if guests have a hankering to take in some uniquely American sporting occasions. The NHL (ice hockey) and NFL (American football) teams, the Tampa Bay Lightning and Tampa Bay Buccaneers respectively, generally play during the late summer, autumn and winter. The Tampa Bay Rays (baseball) play during the spring and summer.

-Nightlife: Holiday is typified by watering holes and eateries of the 'bar & grill' variety, for casual dining. They're broadly in a family setting and chain restaurants are numerous. For more personal service, Tarpon Springs directly south has a more eclectic choice, especially along the Anlcote river. Of course, further afield in the city at large, guests can find any cuisine and ambience they desire.

-Theme Parks: While the famous amusement parks of Orlando are only two hours away by car, Tampa itself has its own Busch Gardens & Adventure Island. With an African theme, Busch Gardens' 335 acres contain some incredible rollercoasters, while the adjacent Adventure Island is a 30-acre water park.

Weather in Holiday

The weather in Florida comes as two main seasons: the wet season during the summer, and the dry season during the winter. The summers are also quite hot, so humidity can be an issue for some people, though thankfully America is the land of air-conditioning and the rain falls mostly as short, sharp thunderstorms. Temperatures rarely exceed the mid-30°C range, however, contrasting with high winter break temperatures averaging in the low-20s.

Travel to Holiday

Having access to a car is almost mandatory in America, as the entire country is structured around the automobile. Public transport and walking are mostly unheard of outside of cities like New York or Chicago, so flying and driving are really the best way to go. Holiday's proximity to Tampa Bay means Tampa International is the closest airport option at only 29 miles away. Orlando International and Orlando-Sanford International offer a greater range of airlines at 115 and 140 miles away respectively.
