Florida is a warm weather vacationers paradise. With it's miles of pristine beaches, the seaside accommodations abound. Planning a vacation in Florida is what many people do after dealing with a long, snowy winter. If you've done Disney to death, or don't have kids who are begging to go to a theme park, staying near the water is the next logical vacation destination here. Besides it's miles of beaches, Florida has rivers to explore, and the famous Intracoastal Waterway which is fun to cruise and great for sport fishing.
The Gulf Coast is well known for it's calmer waters than on the Atlantic side, but the east coast of Florida also offers a lot of beauty and diversity. I lived in central Florida for twenty-seven years and I want you to know what's available so you can get the most out of your tropical beach vacation.
