Adventure awaits in Florida

Of course we love Orlando, but there’s a world of discovery waiting for you outside Disney and Universal Studios. Uncover dense forests and freshwater springs in Crystal River. Or historic neighbourhoods and Cuban culture in Tampa. Whatever it is you're looking for - whether it's a blissed-out beach break or an action-packed family trip - you'll find it here in the Sunshine State. 


Read on to discover how to make the most of the Florida's scenic side in a whistle-stop, 7-day tour of Orlando, Crystal River and Tampa (with a few theme parks thrown in for good measure).

VISIT FLORIDA

Discover Florida in 7 Days

Disney's Magic Kingdom

Day 1 and 2: Fly to Orlando and enjoy a day of Disney fun at its most popular park, Magic Kingdom. To squeeze in as many rides as possible, start with Space Mountain and from there, make your way west to Tomorrowland's People Mover and hit Pirates of the Caribbean en route to Splash Mountain in Frontierland.


Of course, you can’t come all this way without stepping foot inside the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Spend your second day walking through Diagon Alley, sipping on Butterbeer and riding the Hogwarts Express. And if you’re sticking around a while longer, you could even squeeze in a trip to Islands of Adventure, Universal's second park. 

VISIT ORLANDO
 
 
Three Springs

Day 3: After two days of thrills, it’s time to retreat to nature. Crystal River is just an hour and half west of Orlando, so set off early and head straight for Three Sisters Springs. This is where you’ll find the city’s most famous residents - the playful manatees. Get in the water and swim alongside these beautiful creatures. Or, if you're feeling adventurous, hop on a kayak instead. Those looking for a change of scenery should stop by Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park, which is home to native hippos, gators and bears.  

DISCOVER CRYSTAL RIVER
 
 
The Plantation on Crystal River

Day 4: Round your time off in Crystal River in its buzzing downtown. Start by browsing its many boutique shops, before learning all about the city’s past at the Coastal Heritage Museum.


After all that walking, you're bound to work up an appetite, so head over to Vintage on 5th, one of the city's top-rated restaurants. Find a table on its wrap-around porch and tuck into local favourites like shrimp and grits or crab soup, before waddling back to your room at The Plantation on Crystal River. 

STAY AT THE PLANTATION
 
 
Tampa

Day 5: From Crystal River it's about an hour-and-a-half's drive to Tampa, so hit the road early to make the most of this exciting city. 


Make a beeline for the bustling Riverwalk, a pedestrian trail which stretches for over two miles. Home to parks, museums and restaurants, you can always hire a bike for a speedier sightseeing option. And as the sun goes down, a kayak tour on the Hillsborough River is a must-do, whether you choose to take a tour or rent one yourself.

VISIT TAMPA
 
 
Tampa Bay

Day 6: To see the best of what Tampa has to offer, head to Ybor City in the morning. The neighbourhood is famous for its historic cigar industry, its vintage architecture and for being home to the state's oldest restaurant and the original Cuban sandwich. 


It’s up to you if you want to stay here all day, but we suggest heading to the coast mid-afternoon. In just a short 35-minute drive you could be lying on Clearwater’s white sands, one of Florida’s most flawless beaches - the perfect way to end your trip!

VISIT TAMPA
 
 
Fishing in Crystal River

Day 7: After an incredible holiday, it’s time to catch your flight back home from Orlando - while dreaming of your next trip to the Sunshine State.
