Florida discovered by the Spaniards in their search for the mythical 'Fountain of Youth', still to this day attracts the young or young at heart alike. With Orlando attracting more visitors than any other amusement park, to Cape Canaveral America's launch pad for space flights, Miami Beach where the first suntan cream was invented, and to Forth Lauderdale known as the Venice of America with hundreds of local waterways, visitors from around the world are naturally drawn to the wonders of Florida.

South BeachMiami perfectly white sandy beach, unique art deco and Caribbean influences, what's not to love about this flashy city. Visit Little Havana or any of the many Latin nightclubs that liven the evening or take a stroll through Coral cables for a classy Mediterranean style shopping and dining or the Biltmore Hotel for Al Capone stories and take a dip in the beautiful Venetian Pool.

Orlando is all about family fun, where else will you find all in one place Walt Disney World, the Epcot Center, Disney/MGM Studios, Disney's Animal Kingdom, Universal Studios Seaworld, Busch Gardens, and Cypress Gardens. At the end of the day, it's the only place where it's okay to be seen wearing the mouse ears.

Whether it's the fountain of youth you seek, Florida is yours to explore.
