Florida The Sunshine State

image

One of my dreams came true: travelling around USA by camping car. Well, we did travel around Florida. We have stayed in Miami- Orlando- Cocoa Beach- Key West and crossed through many beautiful cities. It was an amazing and fun experience. We had a car to move around and we had our home with us 2 in 1. So we could sleep whereever we stopped which gave us freedom. We woke up in many different places but the best one was when I opened my eyes and the Ocean was just in front of me. I would recommend you guys this fantastic experience if you are ready for an adventurous trip

There were wide ranges of programs to choose from. Many things to do and see here…

Miami-South Beach

Strolling along Ocean Drive admiring extravagant cars, attractive people, amazing buildings, boutiques, fit people on the street gym working out and this elusive vibe made me fall in love with Miami. White sand, crystal clear water and endless ocean view just perfect place to relax.

Everglades alligator farm
The Everglades are a natural region of tropical wetlands in Florida. It’s popularized as “river of grass” by writer Majority Stonesman Dougles. The breathtaking airboat rides are real water safaris. You will see wild animals and beautiful landscapes. Also you can enjoy snake show, alligator show and alligator feeding.

Orlando-Universal Studios
The most popular program offer of Orlando is Universal Studios. With a park to park ticket you can travel between Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Islands of Adventure by Hogwards Express. For those who have no clue: this was the train which brought the students to the magical world in Harry Potter. You will need a whole day to see and try all the attractions. This once in a lifetime kind of experience will take you back to your childhood to enjoy all the fairytails in this amazing place.

Cocoa beach
If you are looking for a great local place without all the hustle and bustle, this “forgotten coast” type location is perfect beach to slow down.

Key West
Key West is an island city 208 km southwest of Miami, Florida Keys and the state’s southernmost point, 171 km north of Havana, Cuba. As Key West is on the border between the colder Atlantic Ocean and the calmer and warmer Gulf of Mexico, you have to choose where do you want to swim which is awesome. The temperature was warmer than in Miami, around 25°C in the middle of February. So we could enjoy the sunshine here which was a bit stronger than we expected and all of us . We left this amazing place after 3 days with heavy hearts.

Sunset Cruise Dinner
Live music, local dishes and some cold cocktails! Where else to watch the world famous Sunset of Key West? The ambiance was great, we danced on the boat during the sunset. Unforgettable moment of our vacation.

Restaurants

So, the bill will be more than you could calculate wherever you go: they will charge you for: service + 18% tips + tax.

Hotel Intercontinental Miami 

We have spent our last day in Hotel Intercontinental Miami. This beautiful 5 star very well located hotel was a big change after our tour by camping car. The amazing view left us speechless, the service and the atmosphere was real 5 star.
