Which Theme Parks You Should Visit In Florida

Florida

is truly a magical wonderland which gives both kids and adults the perfect place to enjoy a vacation like no other. Whilst there is much to a vacation in Florida which you can do from beaches to hover-crafting over marshlands, today we are going to focus solely on the many theme parks which are in operation in the Sunshine State. Theme parks in the USA are like no other nation and it is Florida which regularly sets the benchmark for everyone else to follow.

Universal_Studios_Hollywood_2007

There is a whole host of theme parks to choose from when you go to Florida so we have whittled them down and created a list of the ones which you simply cannot miss out on.

Disney World

Let’s start with the juggernaut that is Disney World, the park that shook the world of theme parks to their foundations when it came along and the franchise which is constantly seeking to create magic for everyone. The complex is split into the following four theme parks:

  • Epcot – Based on human discovery
  • Animal Kingdom – Animal-themed rides and wildlife roaming the park
  • Hollywood Studios – Celebration of Disney at the movies
  • Magic Kingdom – The original theme park and a park packed with Disney-themed rides

Seaworld

For those looking to indulge in some marine life adventure, look no further than Seaworld, a theme park which is based upon all of our favorite underwater animals. Aside from the rides that are available at the park you can also discover a great deal of information about marine life, watch the animals in action with dolphin and whale shows as well as going beneath the depths in the aquarium to watch them in their habitat. You will most certainly enjoy a visit to Seaworld Orlando

and you should not miss out on a day at the park.

Busch Gardens

If you want to enjoy all of the magic that an african Safari can offer, in the very heart of Florida then Busch Gardens is the place for you. This long standing theme park is entirely based around the natural splendor of the African Bush and visitors can enjoy themed rides as well as seeing their favorite animals up close and personal. From cheetahs to elephants roaming around to rides that fly at breakneck speed, Busch Gardens truly is a park like no other.

Universal Studios

Universal Studios is a theme park which is dedicated to all things film and TV and for movie buffs, this place is like paradise. All of the rides are based on smash hit movies and through the years they have allowed visitors to ride on E.T.’s bike, get chased by King Kong and help out Indiana Jones. The theme park is ever changing and each year it alters one of the rides in order to stay current or launch a new ride based on an industry classic. Even if you aren’t a fan of the movies, you will absolutely love this theme park and it should not be missed.

My Favourite 5 Indian Destinations

I fell in love with India around 5 years ago and ever since that first trip I have returned on 4 occasions and traveled extensively around its regions. In all honesty, I didn’t even think I would like it there, I knew that I liked the food, but that was pretty much it. Once I arrived however, my opinions quickly changed and I am planning on returning for my 6th time this October. If you choose to decide to spend your holiday in India then here are some of the places which I would recommend that you go to.

Jaipur,_Jal_Mahal

Kashmir

In terms of sheer natural beauty, Kashmir is up there with the best of them and it was the place which I first visited 5 years ago. Here you will find true Indian culture in the small villages that are littered through the region, wide plains and fresh lakes, all with the backdrop of the impending Himalaya mountain range.

Goa

If you are looking to party in India then Goa is the place for you, this is a 24/7 happy place where you can relax on the beach by day and party on it at night. The clock ceases to exist when you get to Goa and it truly is a revelers dream. For those not wanting anything to crazy, there are many areas of Goa which are set away from the bars and clubs and offer relaxing tranquility on the Indian Ocean.

Agra

India’s main event is undoubtedly the Taj Mahal, one of the seven wonders of the modern world and a truly breathtaking building which has stood the test of time. In order to see the Taj Mahal and the surrounding buildings, you should stay in Aggra, a very ‘Indian’ city which bustles with markets and somewhat surprisingly given its proximity to the Taj Mahal, it isn’t too touristy.

Bangalore

Bangalore is a modern metropolis which is also home to India’s high-tech industry so much so that it is often referred to as the Indian ‘Silicon Valley’. There is a very international feel about this city and the drinking and dining scene are growing rapidly with lots of trendy new bars and restaurants popping up throughout the city. This is a great city to relax in for a few days, especially if you have been putting in the work traveling through some of the more rural areas of India. Throughout the city you will find many plazas, shopping centers and open parks where you can enjoy the warm climate and some modern Indian culture.

Jaipur

To experience the very best of India’s rich history you should go to the northern city of Jaipur. Once the home of the royal family which ruled the region of Rajasthan, this city houses a vast number of ancient houses and temples with the opulent Palace complex amongst the most popular of the attractions in the city. There is a very local feel about the city and in terms of markets, you will do well to find many as grand or busy as there are in Jaipur.

Antigua

A beautiful blend of British colonial history and tropical paradise is what you will experience during a trip to the beautiful island of Antigua. If you book yourself an Antigua holiday then you will be spending your time in one of the busier and more livelier of the Caribbean islands. The main attraction in Antigua is no doubt the British harbor which was once a naval port but now is home to many fishing trawlers and yachts, the views which can be found over the harbor are breathtaking.

Virgin Gorda, British Virgin Islands

This is the third largest of the British Virgin Islands and arguably its most beautiful. Thankfully for tourists to the island, this is also one of the quietest of the Virgin Islands which means that you can enjoy the 8.5 square miles of sheer natural beauty and have it almost to yourself. Here you will find beaches which are completely isolated and they make for the perfect spot during a romantic break. The most popular attraction on the island are the grottos on the coast which are formed thanks to large granite boulders which form baths in the sea.

Barbados

Barbados is a great Caribbean destination which really does have something for all kinds of traveler. Here you will find a wide range of natural splendor from pink beaches to exotic wildlife such as turtles and monkeys as well as areas of coral reef which you can explore with a snorkel and mask. Further inland you will find lively towns with local music playing, and locals dancing and drinking in the street. The food in Barbados is some of the finest in the Caribbean and you can experiment with some true Caribbean flavors in the island’s restaurants.

 

Turks And Caicos

This collection of 40 islands makes for the perfect Caribbean stay, 32 of the islands are inhabited which means that you will be spoiled for choice when it comes to which part of paradise you would like to stay. Whilst there is some colonial architecture to be found throughout the islands, the main premise of any visit to the Turks and Caicos islands is to thoroughly relax. White sandy beaches, turquoise waters and sunshine for 14 hours per day, the perfect place to do absolutely nothing for a while.
