DESTINATION FLORIDA

The beaches in Florida are legendary. Long, straight, and surf-pounded on the east coast, they're powder-soft, pure white, and gently washed by the gulf to the west. Resorts come in all shapes and sizes, and theme parks and minigolf courses thrive: fun in the sun is high art in Florida. But stray a few miles from your hotel room and you might glimpse the land that welcomed sponge divers from Greece, cigar makers from Cuba, and boat people from Haiti. Cattle ranches and horse farms extend long, empty miles from the border of Walt Disney World. And as glittering, high-energy Miami anchors the south, rockets tower over the east coast and red-soil hills and sleepy Southern villages crowd the Georgia border to the north. Every corner of Florida richly rewards those who take the time to know it better.


Highlights of Florida

Florida is more diverse than you might realize. Sure, there are world-class theme parks, with the biggest, most sparkling rides on the globe. And if you're the average tourist, that's one of the things you come for. But if you've got time to stop and smell the orange blossoms, there's a lot more here. If you have at least one week, plan on flying to Orlando -- an ideal gateway because of its central location and its abundance of direct flights.

Orlando

You might want to budget two days for new Disney offerings, including Disney's Animal Kingdom. If you have youngsters, a day at the Magic Kingdom, including a character breakfast, is a must. Universal added its own new park -- Universal Studios Islands of Adventure -- to its Universal Studios Florida. Be sure to visit the charming SeaWorld Orlando.

Tampa and St.Pete

There are two must-dos when you visit these cities: get a taste of Latin culture in Tampa's Ybor City (originally a Cuban cigar-manufacturing district, now a neighborhood abounding in culinary spots and hot nightclubs), and watch a classic Florida sunset at St. Petersburg Beach.

Sanibel and Captiva

Sanibel is a wonderful barrier island and home of the J. N. "Ding" Darling National Wildlife Refuge, where you can canoe through a rich mangrove swamp. The beaches of Sanibel and its neighbor, Captiva, have exceptional shelling, as well as extraordinary wildlife.

Naples and Marco Island

Naples is a sophisticated town 40 minutes south of Sanibel. Marco has great beaches and beachfront hotels and makes a good overnight stop because of a "shortcut" to Key West -- a three-hour ferry as opposed to a six-hour drive.

The Florida Keys

No other place in America, much less Florida, resembles the Keys. The largest portion of the continental United States' only living coral reef is here. The beauty of the Keys would be reason enough to visit. This is where America goes Caribbean. Your wristwatch starts to chafe, and napping at midday feels obligatory (though not much else does). Welcome to the Land That Stress Forgot. As you snorkel or scuba dive among the vivid coral reefs swarming with bewitchingly bright fish, time stands still, which just might make your vacation seem a little longer.

Miami and Miami Beach

Miami has its own urban experience, a cultural confluence of Latin vibes and subtropical hedonism. Miami is considered hot by most anyone who is chic or wants to be. In South Beach you're as likely to see famous stars as you would in Hollywood. Miami is also a great departure point for a Caribbean cruise. Envelop yourself in Latin culture in the Calle Ocho district. Miami's beaches offer surprisingly clear aqua water as well as a vibrant cafe and nightclub district.

Palm Beach

Palm Beach is the richest town, per capita, in Florida and one of the world's playgrounds for the extremely wealthy. The sun-drenched beaches here are as impressive as the shopping and dining along Worth Avenue and the luxurious hotels, including the famous Breakers.
