It’s also a fantastic place for kids, with so many family-friendly places to visit and things to do. If you’re considering Florida for your next vacation but you’re not sure where to go, there are multiple destinations that are just perfect for families with family members of all ages.

From Walt Disney World to Universal Studios vacation packages, the best vacation deals are available in Orlando. If you’re looking for the perfect family vacation destination in Florida, you can’t miss out on Orlando. It’s probably the first place you think of when you consider family-friendly places in the state thanks to the incredible and large theme parks that can be found there. From Walt Disney World to Universal Studios and Epcot, you can discover a huge range of things to see and do in the city. Of course, the theme parks can get a little pricey. So if you’re planning to go, it’s best to be prepared for how much it would cost, especially with a large group.

Florida Keys

The Florida Keys archipelago offers a completely different experience to Orlando. It might not be the first place you think of when you’re looking for family fun, but it’s actually an amazing choice for your family. There’s a lot of choice for things to do and ways to spend your vacation, so you can make it your own. Start by finding the right place to stay – these are the best resorts in Florida Keys for families with children. Then you can decide how you want to spend your time in the Keys. You could head to the beach, go to a water park or perhaps even spend your time camping.

Sanibel Island

For another Floridian island adventure, try out Sanibel Island. Sanibel is a quieter destination, which is perfect for families that are looking for sun, sand, and surf. Water-based activities are the order of the day here, including snorkeling, swimming, and more. Or if you prefer dry land, there are opportunities to cycle, hike, or get active in other ways. Those who prefer to move as little as possible while on their vacation can enjoy the 15 miles of beautiful beaches that the island has to offer.

Tampa

If you’re looking for a city vacation but you don’t think Orlando is for you, Tampa is a great alternative. It still has lots of family-friendly things to do, including theme parks, aquariums, museums, water sports, sporting events, and much more. Try visiting places like Busch Gardens, ZooTampa, Florida Aquarium, or Glazer Children’s Museum. There’s plenty to do for those who love to splash about at Adventure Island. You won’t run out of things to do in Tampa.

Take your family to one of these amazing Florida destinations for a vacation that you will all remember.
