USA - Florida trip report, things to do and see in USA - Florida


USA - Florida

Also known as the Sunshine State, Florida is one of the most popular states in the US with millions flocking to see sandy beaches, wild wetlands, the home of Mickey Mouse, and a NASA spaceship launch pad. Just keep an eye out for the odd alligator that could pop out of nowhere.



The premier city in Florida is all about beaches, yachts, nightlife and beautiful people. South Beach, known as SoBe – is the center of the action. The sidewalks are full of tanned and lithe people (as well as more than a few wannabes). There is a Latin feel to the city thanks to its huge Cuban community. Miami comes to life after sunset, there's clubs and bars for every type of night-owl – from chic to skanky.
If you go in March/April, be prepared for the infamous Spring Break, when thousands of American college students descend into Miami for edification and debauchery.


Fort Lauderdale

Fort Lauderdale is a beach-lover's paradise. Think of it as a laid back version of Miami without the international crowds - people there are predominantly Americans. It's a very affluent town, whenever I mentioned Morocco, they would tell me how much they love the casinos, confusing it with Monaco. I would also recommend an anti-intelligence vaccination before going there.
