Florida, in the south-east of the USA, is known as the Sunshine State because of its climate, which makes it a fantastic holiday destination at any time of year. With its theme parks, beaches, historic cities, scenery and golf courses, it’s a great place to visit and the best way to explore it is by rental car.
Cities and Towns in Florida
easyCar has car rental facilities at a number of airports in Florida, including Orlando International Airport, Orlando Sanford International Airport and Miami International Airport, and also has car hire offices in downtown Miami and at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando.
Orlando is a the perfect destination for a family holiday, due to its famous theme parks, which include the Walt Disney World Resort, Universal Studios Florida and SeaWorld. The best way to get to the theme parks is in a rental car, as they are quite a distance from each other. You can also use your hire car to get to other attractions near Orlando, such as Daytona Beach, Tampa Bay and the Kennedy Space Center.
Miami is on Florida’s south-east coast and is known for its art deco buildings, beaches and wealthy residents. Attractions within Miami include the Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, the Miami Seaquarium, Miami Metro Zoo and Jungle Island. You can use your hire car to drive to the city of Fort Lauderdale, the Everglades Alligator Farm in Florida City, or the stunning Coral Castle in Homestead.
Other Florida cities worth visiting as part of a rental car holiday include the State Capital of Tallahassee, St. Augustine, Sarasota and Jacksonville.
Other Attractions in Florida
Florida is a beautiful State and you’ll be able to explore it properly in a rental car. If you base yourself in Miami, you can use your rental car to explore the Everglades National Park, which covers 2500 square miles and is a designated World Heritage Site.
You could also use your rental car to drive to the Florida Keys, the group of islands to the south of Miami. The main islands are linked together by the Florida Keys Overseas Highway, so you can drive your rental car from Miami to the first of the islands, Key Largo, and down through the Keys to the popular tourist destination of Key West. It takes less than 4 hours to get to Key West from Miami in a hire car, but there is so much to see and do on the Florida Keys that it’s worth spending a day or two exploring each of them.
Florida is also known for its beaches and if you use Orlando as a base for your rental car holiday, St. Petersburg Beach or Clearwater Beach are easy to reach. Alternatively, head north of Orlando in your hire car and explore the A1A Historic and Scenic Coastal Byway, a 72 mile stretch of road that begins in Ponte Vedra Beach and ends in Flagler Beach. You’ll be able to see some beautiful scenery and, for a break from your rental car, stop off en route and visit the historic city of St. Augustine, the Guana Tolomato Matanzas Reserve, the seaside resort of Vilano Beach or the Marineland dolphin conservation centre.
