Florida is the Entertainment Capital of the World – an overused phrase but very true! But the white sandy beaches of the Gulf Coast and the wonderful theme parks of the Disney area are only part of what Florida has to offer………If you are a golfer then your main problem is choosing which course to play – golf courses are everywhere! A range of courses cater for the beginner through to some of the most difficult around with water everywhere!
Not many people are aware of the marvellous inland fishing that is available in Florida. Some of the lakes in Florida are regarded as the best Bass fishing in the world and there is no closed season. Just buy your license and off you go. And then of course there is the marvellous deep-water fishing. A day trip off the coast in a boat with an experienced captain will be an experience you will never forget. Florida is a fisherman’s paradise.
Florida caters well for the sports enthusiast. Sporting activities are in an abundance with American football, rodeo, baseball, basketball, boating, tennis, snorkelling, deep sea diving, parachuting, bungee jumping and so the list goes on and on. There is so much to do that you will really need to plan your activities well in advance.
The expression “shop till you drop” started here! The wide choice of shops including massive shopping malls and designer outlets will cater for everyone whether you are looking to purchase designer clothes or looking to buy those holiday bargains for friends and family back home.
But as the sun starts to set your thoughts may turn to food and drink and here again the holidaymaker is literally well catered for there are always a wide range of restaurants close at hand wherever you are staying ranging from family meals to the ultimate a la carte. But perhaps the two specialities are superb thick, juicy steaks or seafood especially shellfish. Our favourites are either a 16oz Filet mignon or a lobster tail. For those who are really hungry try both! For a great evening out take the family to one of the many dinner shows that are available throughout the state. These themed dinners offer excellent value for money and are great fun throughout the evening.
And finally there is the nightlife. Sitting in a quiet bar enjoying your favourite cocktail is always available but in addition there are nightclubs and busier bars always close at hand. In Central Florida there are the added evening attractions of City Walk at Universal or Pleasure Island at Disney. Here you can shop, eat, drink and dance the night away all at one location – just make sure you do not drink and drive!
