Florida has long been one of the most popular tourist destinations in the US, with countless people flocking to this part of the world every year. There are loads of things to do in this beautiful state, though most people will be coming for the chance to relax, and this limits the options a little bit. To give you some ideas and inspiration, this post will be exploring some of the best ways to soak up the Sunshine State, all without having to lift a finger. This is a great way to break up the adventures you go on while visiting Florida.

Private Beaches

One of the biggest challenges which travellers face when they visit Florida is finding some privacy. Most people don’t want to be surrounded by other people when they are bathing in the sun, but it’s hard to find quiet beaches which don’t have something wrong with them. There are a lot of rental villas on offer which come with their own private beaches. While they won’t be fenced off, signs will keep people away, giving you the chance to enjoy some true seclusion. This doesn’t have to be too expensive, with websites like AirBnB making it possible to find great deals on places with unique features like this.

Out On A Boat

While a lot of people associate Florida with surfing more than boating, the coast around this state can be surprisingly calm. This makes going out on a boat into a comfortable and enjoyable experience, without making you feel sick in the process. If you find the right boat club, you will be able to rent a boat which is perfect for sunbathing, while also ensuring that you can enjoy this activity in peace. Depending on your location, this could give you the chance to see dolphins and other sea life, making it great for anyone who loves to indulge in a slice of nature.

Into The Swamps

Most people’s idea of swamp is something stagnant and smelly, without much other than mud and insects to cover yourself in. In reality, though, these parts of Florida are some of the most ecologically diverse environments across the US. From alligators to tree frogs, you’ll find all sorts of creatures in these parts of the state, and you can explore them in a number of ways. Hovercrafts or windboats are some of the best options for this, as they enable you to get up close and personal with the wildlife. If you’d prefer something a little more exciting, though, you could consider the idea of seeing this part of Florida from the comfort of a helicopter.

A lot of people visit Florida each year, though very few take full advantage of the options this state has on offer. If you’d like to learn more about the Sunshine State, it’s well worth reading more blogs, as this can be a great way to give yourself some inspiration. Of course, though, it’s also worth thinking about the other places you’d like to visit.
