We Love

Experiencing the diversity of the Sunshine State. From the tourist land of Orlando to Spanish-style St Augustine; and from the beautiful beaches of the Florida Keys to the marshes of the Everglades.

Summary

Before the Sunshine State became known for its theme parks and beach resorts, it was a haven for artists, writers and architects. Ernest Hemingway and Tennessee Williams settled in Key West; artists established a creative community in St Petersburg; and Miami’s South Beach was transformed in a sweep of art deco colour. This Florida tour follows in their footsteps and traces the state's fascinating history. We’ll cover some of Florida's best attractions, too - Everglades National Park and Kennedy Space Center.
