Florida does not need a long introduction, it is undoubtedly the most famous state in America after New York and California. The versatility of this state is especially striking. From the beautiful sandy beaches of Miami, the Keys Islands, the Disney and Universal theme parks in Orlando, the cruise ships in Fort Lauderdale, the JFK Space Center in Cape Canaveral to the Everglades, you’ll find it all in the Sunshine State.

The tourist mainly knows Orlando, Miami, Key West and, if things go well, Tampa. Florida has three National Parks, the Everglades, Biscayne and Dry Tortugas. Key West is the southernmost point of the United States while Orlando is only 300.
