Florida is ideal for families because sunny, warm weather means getting outside is a year-round affair. For indoor activities, the Frost Science Museum in Miami provides a fantastic way to engage younger ones while parents can also learn a thing or two. The I-MAG History and Science Center in Fort Myers provides interactive exhibits and pairs nicely with an afternoon of dolphin watching. Also, Busch Gardens in Tampa is a great way to let it go on a roller coaster. Do not count out cultural activities, either, because a quirky museum like the Dali Museum in St. Pete works for all ages as well, it is a must visit for every visit to St. Pete! And through, filter through property types to ensure accommodations and amenities are perfect for families of all sizes.


Adventure seekers in Florida will find seemingly countless ways to chase a thrill, especially with 150 state parks and 15,000 miles of land and water trails begging to be explored. The state’s paddling trails are an accessible way to get visitors on the water. The Great Calusa Blueway, for example, provides 190 miles of inland paddling in Lee County that welcomes all levels of kayakers. There are bioluminescent night experiences off the coast of Cape Canaveral, where the lack of little light pollution makes for some amazing paddling excursions. Just north of Gainesville, families will love stargazing and camping by the emerald blue waters of Ichetucknee Springs. For those who think they have done it all, try kiteboarding in St. Pete, launching at either the Sunshine Skyway or Fort de Soto County Park.
