Much of Florida occupies a peninsula jutting out from the mainland U.S., so the jewel in its crown is undoubtedly the miles of continuous coastline. Those who like their sun with a side of city buzz will feel at home in Miami, with its vibrant art-deco buildings and energetic nightlife alongside golden sand and glisteningly clear waters. Tampa Bay also offers the best of both worlds and is the perfect base to explore local gems like Clearwater Beach and St. Petersburg.
The Sunshine State is also home to the stunning collection of islands on the Gulf of Mexico known as the Keys – drive down the iconic Seven Mile Bridge with the roof down to reach a sailing, fishing, tennis and golf paradise. A Florida hire car can get you wherever you want to go.
