The beautiful sandy beaches, year-round sunshine, warm seas and multi-coloured sunsets are just a few of the reasons why America’s entertainment capital has gained so much in popularity over recent years.

Affordable and accessible, the growth of this wonderful sunshine state has been fuelled by the fun-filled and famous Disney World centre. However, for many people the huge variety of sporting facilities such as deep sea fishing, scuba diving, golf and tennis make Florida a compelling location. The shopping facilities, superb restaurants, 24-hour food stores and the competitive price of petrol all give visitors to Florida a chance to experience a great deal more of the American dream.  With the magnificent climate and the welcoming nature of the people, Florida is a place that will thrill and impress families, groups and singles of all ages.
