What can you do on a family holiday in Florida? The real question is, what can't you do in Florida? If you're looking for the family holiday of a lifetime, this is definitely the place to be - and it promises the type of holiday that you and the family will still be talking about in years to come.

So, what are Florida holidays all about? For starters you've got the wonderland of Disney, which offers stomach-churning rides and ridiculous rollercoasters, and the chance for your kids to meet their favourite cartoon characters in the flesh. You might even meet some of your own favourites too - so keep your eyes peeled for Mickey and Minnie! Then you've got the non-stop fun of Universal Studios and the splash-tastic adventures of SeaWorld. Here you can see whales and dolphins perform amazing tricks, and get up close and personal with some of the most beautiful and gracious creatures of the deep.
Florida is also home to the Kennedy Space Center, a fantastic exploration of space travel that really is out of this world. And once you've had your fill of spaceships and rockets, there's a long list of other activities just waiting to be discovered. For instance, why not head off to the Everglades and explore this vast swampy wilderness on a tour? You could join a guide and head out to discover this huge nature reserve, looking out for fearsome alligators as you go, which is a great way to see creatures great and small in their natural habitat.
And of course if that all sounds a little too adventurous, you could always head to the beach for the day. Florida is home to beautiful beaches in the popular coastal resorts of St Petersburg, Clearwater and Tampa among others, which serve up fantastic golden sands and sparkling shores in a wonderful family-friendly atmosphere.
