About Florida

Click here for the best places to stay in Florida

All our Florida collections:

Surely 60 million people can’t be wrong? It is for very good reason that the Sunshine State is one of the biggest tourist magnets in the Western hemisphere. And since the onset of low-priced air travel it has replaced the Mediterranean as the sun-seeking peoples’ choice amongst Europeans - as well as for North Americans, who may have liked to keep their knowledge of the best places to stay in Florida to themselves!

With the longest coastline on the mainland United States, Florida is best known for its beaches, but the best places to stay in Florida aren’t all by the sea. The long coastline is only one part of the story of this flat peninsula, where rich Latin American and Caribbean culture meets one of the world’s unique wetland habitats, with its wild, crocodile-infested mangrove swamps. The best places to stay in the Sunshine State are the ones that offer glimpses of Florida in all its moods.

The ethnic melting pot of the USA in microcosm, Florida has it all: good food, tropical flora, as well as the invariably warm weather and blindingly white beaches.

From the wild hedonism of Miami’s South Beach, to the fisherman’s paradise of Key West in the famous Florida Keys and the concentration of theme parks headed by Walt Disney World, the urbanisation that has made this state the fourth most populous in the US, has not so far damaged its status as an animal-watcher’s paradise. Alligators, herons, manatees and sea turtles, osprey and eagles, dolphins and tarpon all dwell here, and there are touches of the primitive paradise, where precious rare orchids flourish in inaccessible wetlands.

Florida goes from big and brash to delicately natural in a second, making it a dream destination. Our pick of the best places to stay in Florida reflect this diversity, with a good selection for all from family favourites, to glamorous boutiques.
