The Sunshine State is the fastest growing state in the United States, and is a great place to enjoy the white sand beaches or visit St. Augustine, the oldest city in the country.

Florida has many top things to do in addition to Walt Disney World, Universal Studios, and the other fun things to do.  There are other smaller amusement parks with roller coasters.

You can visit one of our natural springs, take an airboat ride in Everglades National Park, or watch the NASCAR races at Daytona International Speedway.

You can also use the Google custom search box at the top of the page to search for specific things on this website, and take a peek at the short video below to get some ideas.
