The Sunshine State is much more than sun, sand, and surf.

About the Destination

The Sunshine State is much more than sun, sand and surf. Of course, Busch Gardens, the Universal Studios, and the Discovery Cove in Orlando are sure to delight, but let Florida show you how vacation and education come together in perfect harmony.

Take a light hike through one of Florida’s many beautiful national parks, or stroll through the oldest continually settled city in the U.C. – St. Augustine – founded in 1565 by the Spanish. Spend a day at Disney, or find out if alligator really does taste like chicken. 

Eat some Cuban cuisine while practicing your Spanish skills in the lively, music-filled boardwalks of Miami, or examine the ecology of Everglades National Park by airboat. Visit the Holocaust Museum in St. Petersburg to see, with your own eyes, a boxcar used by the Nazis to transport their prisoners to concentration camps like Auschwitz. From Orlando to Miami, we guarantee that Florida is sure to surprise and delight.
