FLORIDA DAY TRIPS

June 9, 2020

We know many of you are limiting travel during these uncertain times.  Although we continue to feature trips and places to visit, we are not encouraging you to visit them until it is safe.  We want to support Florida's attractions and businesses during this situation, and hope you will plan to visit them when things get better.  In the meantime, enjoy them virtually from the comfort of your home. 

The Florida day trips on this website tell you about specific locations you can visit.  That could be a town, a tourist attraction, a museum, or anything of interest.

2.  You can choose a day trip based on a theme that fits into your particular interest.  This might be a railroad museum, a botanical garden, a zoo, or any number of others.  We have arranged these day trips destinations by theme.
