From Anna Maria Island, it’s a quick 22mi to Sarasota, where you can explore its unique cultural scene or relax at one of its many fine keys, or islands.

  • 3. Theme Park Adventures

    Jungle Island in Miami offers a popular tropical bird exhibit, and unique twin orangutans. Orlando is home to SeaWorld Orlando, Walt Disney World, LegoLand, and Universal Studios Florida. Buccaneer Bay Water Park at Weeki Wachee Springs offers an array of thrilling waterslides on a white sand beach.

  • 4. Get Educated

What to Pack for Your Family Vacation in Florida

What to Pack for Your Family Vacation in Florida

Florida's climate generally requires casual lightweight clothing that can be easily mixed and matched. Comfort, convenience, and versatility are the key.

  • 1. A Mix of Clothing

    It’s a good idea to take two or more of each piece of clothing, especially swimwear. That way one set can be drying, while the other is being worn. Clothing that can be worn in light layers is always a good idea, as it may get cooler in the evening hours.

  • 2. Saving Space

    If you roll up clothing in your luggage instead of laying them flat, you’ll fit more into your bags overall. Space saver bags you can vacuum excess air out of are great for saving space and weight.

  • 3. Packing with Your Kids

    If you’re flying with your kids, set them up with backpacks including a change of clothes, a swimsuit, necessary medication, and hygiene necessities. Let your kids pick out a treat and their favorite toys to include in their packs. Involve them in the packing process, with your helpful supervision.

  • 4. Enjoying the Florida Sunshine

    To protect everyone from the warm, yet intense sun, be sure to pack sunscreen with a good SPF factor. Hats and sunglasses will also keep you adequately shielded from UV rays.
