What Are Some of Florida’s Recreational Activities?

Florida offers recreational activities beyond your wildest imagination. So here are a few things everyone must try in the Sunshine State:

Go Cruising

Florida offers numerous cruises along its coastline as a retreat from everyday life’s troubles in full comfort and style. Embark on a memorable sunset cruise with breathtaking views, mouthwatering dishes, and heart thumping music. You can even fulfill your buccaneering dreams and turn on the pirate mode on the Pirate Ransom sunset cruise over the Gulf of Mexico. Sip beer in big wooden mugs on deck and learn about the tales at sea. Or go on treasure hunts and partake in water fights. It’s fun for all ages.

Go to a Natural Spring

Florida has some 750 or so natural water springs scattered across its terrain, most of them with water as clear as the day sky and always being at a blissful temperature of around 70 degrees, regardless of the season. These springs are not only perfect to escape any hot or cold day surrounded among fauna and flora, but also serve as popular spots for aqua therapy sessions.

Go Shell Collecting

The beaches of Florida have shellfish galore. There are so many of them everywhere, in every shape, color, and size, you won’t know what to do with them. And if that’s not enough, there are entire galleries and shops dedicated to exhibiting and selling shellfish arts and crafts.

Go on an Adventure

Nearly half a million acres of land in Florida, spanning across 160 parks, are dedicated for the sole purpose of nature preservation. These sites offer some exciting adventures, regardless of whether you are an adrenaline junkie or just craving some fun time with your family.

Zip line over one of the world’s largest and oldest natural canopies, and experience the thrill as you jump from extreme heights totally unsecured, test your courage as you wander into ancient natural cave formations, tumble across gushing chasms in your modest little canoe and so much more. Or you could just rent a bike or a kayak and tread through peacefully, exploring your surroundings at your own pace.

Go to an Aquarium

Florida has several aquariums where you can immerse yourself in marine life. Get educated through various interactive exhibits and presentations, or check out one of the dozen exciting dolphin, orca, and sea lion performances that are sure to delight guests of all ages. One aquarium to visit while visiting Florida, is Miami’s Frost Science Museum

Go on a Safari

Venture into the untouched beauty of Florida. Hop aboard an adrenaline pumping airboat ride at The Everglades and get up close and personal with the wildlife. Have a chance to see Florida’s famous snapping alligators, manatees, bald eagles, and hundreds of other birds and animal species in their natural habitat. Or go for a VIP safari experience at Jungle Island and cuddle lemurs, feed baby kangaroos and pet African penguins.

Go Scuba Diving

Florida offers some of the finest spots for diving and snorkeling. Go live crabbing or visit America’s first underwater park.
