Florida — Year-round subtropical temperatures, hundreds of miles of palm-lined beaches, and family-friendly attractions serve as Florida's siren call. A vast coral reef system, miles of swampy wilderness filled with alligators and wading birds, savory seafood restaurants, and golf courses galore add to its balmy allure. Urbanites who prefer to complement their outdoors fix with a trendy backdrop and diverse nightlife beeline to the state's southeastern cities, while laid-back beachcombers gravitate toward its Gulf Coast and northeastern shores.

Why Go

For sexy beaches, unspoiled wetlands, immense theme parks, outlet malls, and a healthy balance of beauty and kitsch.
