If you think Florida is just about beaches, Miami, palm trees and Disney World - you are so wrong! Florida is so much more. In fact, you would need several weeks to explore all its wonders. I've tried to sum up the key places and activities here.

9. Florida is loaded with amazing States Parks and National Preserves.

I would recommend to see them all, but if you must choose - pick one in North Florida, another in the center and one more in South Florida. The nature is unique and very different. A few of my favorites are: Ichetucknee Springs Park, Suwannee River Park and Paynes Prairie Preserve.

11. Saint Augustine - the oldest city in US.

12. Sanibel and Captiva islands and incredible shell beaches.
