Top Ten Spring Activities in Florida
Sports and aquariums are only a couple of the fascinating activities to try in Florida.
Walk on the Beach
Take your socks and shoes off, feel the sand beneath your feet, and walk for miles and miles of sandy beaches with glorious ocean views. Find beaches near you.
Unwind in Key West
Key West is the southernmost city in the United States. Enjoy warm temperatures, a relaxed atmosphere, outdoor cafes, street entertainment, and interesting people-watching. Walk Duval Street if you like to shop and enjoy nightlife.
See Coral Reefs
Go to John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park to see rare coral reefs, mangrove swamps, and sea-grass beds on Key Largo. Visitors can canoe, kayak, look through a glass-bottomed boat, and snorkel.
Shop the Miracle Mile
You can’t go wrong spending time in Coral Gables at the beautifully landscaped shopping district, called the Miracle Mile. Enjoy luxury shopping, theater, art galleries, and great restaurants.
Explore Epcot Center
Epcot Center, one of four Walt Disney World theme parks near Orlando, is the fifth most-visited theme park in the world. Grab a seat for The American Adventure, and see an entertaining version of American history.
Pick Your Own Grapefruit
Find a u-pick farm near you, and enjoy Florida’s delicious citrus fruit at its freshest. You also can find it at a local farmer’s market. There’s nothing like a Florida grapefruit or orange right off the tree.
Attend a Local Festival
As temperatures heat up it’s a great time to get outside and explore the community around you. Check out this list of upcoming Florida festivals. There is everything from outdoor concerts, food trucks, garden shows and craft fairs.
Try something a little wild in Sarasota
From the waters of southwestern Sarasota, you can kayak through exotic mangrove tunnels, where you might see manatees, dolphins, osprey, and eagles. Or give wakeboarding a whirl – it’s like snowboarding on a wave instead of a snowy hill!
See the oldest city in America
St. Augustine, established in 1565 was the first permanent European settlement in the United States. Get a glimpse into the city’s rich maritime history by touring the El Galeón, an authentic replica of a ship that traveled the coast of Florida 500 years ago. It’s docked at the Municipal Marina through July.
See the opulence of a bygone era
Explore Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, a stunning estate and National Historic Landmark in the heart of modern Miami. It’s an amazingly preserved villa where you can see one of the most significant collections of Italian furniture and furnishings in the United States and walk through elaborate European-inspired gardens. Stroll through the lovely Orchidarium, and check out an extremely varied collection of historic sculptures.
