Favourite Destination: Florida

I have to say that my favorite destination would have to be Florida. You are almost guaranteed sunshine and with so much to do and see in one state it’s a holiday the whole family will enjoy. You could spend your entire trip theme park hopping, or just enjoy some R&R on the countless Florida beaches. For nightlife head to the hotels of South Beach, you never know who you might run into!
