Many of our top recommendations are set in the natural environment. This is because the American best beaches, state parks, Everglades and forests offer some great experiences and escape the ever present Florida highway noise. Florida is also home to the mega theme parks of Orlando and the interesting cultural and diving cultures of South Florida. You can also see our Florida Family Vacation Ideas for more attractions.
Heading the list in Tampa are family friendly beaches, Florida Aquarium, Museum of Science & Industry, Lowry Park Zoo and Dinosaur World.
Miami and South Florida in general have a wealth of attractions. Miami is home to the Miami Seaquarium with it's killer Killer Whale Show and Jungle Island. You can read more about these and other Miami attractions in our Miami Vacation Spots article.
