Before moving here we had visited Florida many times over the years. However, we were either visiting relatives or staying at a destination spot like Disneyland. Once we settled into the Gulf Coast, we began to take day and weekend road trips and discovered how diverse and amazing Florida truly is. If you want to do the theme parks, and you should at least once, you won’t need help finding those. But if you want to explore Florida and find the hidden wonders of this state, that’s where we come in. Explore our articles below. Take a bike trip, kayak the Gulf of Mexico, go camping in one of our state parks, or choose a destination in one of our neighboring states.
When driving the roads of Florida, you may run into some things that you aren’t quite used to. Like love bugs splattering all over your windshield.
