Key lime pie

Everywhere you go in Florida, you’re pretty much guaranteed to find key lime pie on the menu. And we couldn’t be happier about that, to be honest. This concoction of key lime juice and condensed milk, buried under a mound of fluffy meringue is just delicious. Did you know…

Feeling

PECKISH?

Fritas

If it’s good enough for Barack Obama, it’s good enough for us. Head over to El Mago de las Fritas for one of the president’s favourite Fritas – a Cuban interpretation of the hamburger, with a mixture of fried and raw onions, potato strings and a dollop of ketchup. A bit of trivia for you…

Cuban Sandwich

If you happen to find yourself feeling a little peckish whilst cruising through Miami, then this is the snack for you. The Cuban sandwich, stuffed full with delicious ham, roast pork, Swiss cheese and mustard, is guaranteed to satisfy your hunger pangs. What makes a GREAT Cuban sandwich?

Jam-Packed Fun!

Theme Parks

For the kids, and big kids a like, Florida is jam-packed with theme parks. There’s obviously Disney World and Universal Studios, but there are plenty of smaller ones to keep you entertained, too. We recommend Busch Gardens.

Gators!

Overseas
Highway

For one of the most awe-inspiring drives of your life, hit the Overseas Highway, also known as U.S. Route 1. This scenic road is by far the best way to explore the Florida Keys.

Wetlands

If you fancy a break from driving, get back to nature with a tour of the wetlands on a classic airboat. There are plenty of tours available, taking you to the more remote and peaceful areas inaccessible by car. Keep your eyes peeled for ‘gators as well!

Manatee Springs
State Park

Just off the U.S. Route 19, you’ll find the stunning Manatee Springs State Park with its large, warm pools of spring water. If you visit in the autumn or winter, chances are you’ll see a manatee and its calf, after which the springs are named.
