Walt Disney World
You may have a pretty good idea why this one is at the top of our list. Most people associate Florida with Walt Disney World.
And it’s not just the little ones either.
Most of the time, the parents, who themselves grew up watching Disney movies and dreaming about visiting this fantastical and magical place at least once in their lifetime, find themselves getting just as excited as their kids.
It’s a perfect excuse for everyone to let out their inner child.
Being the biggest amusement park in the world, no matter how many times you visit it, it never loses its charm and each time is a different experience altogether, with countless new memories with the ones you love most.
Boasting one of the biggest aquariums in the world, with thousands of marine and amphibious species, Discovery Cove (a SeaWorld company) offers a unique, fun and educational experience for your entire family to enjoy.
Whether you want to spend the entire day relaxing among the dolphins and the penguins, or educating yourself about the habitats of reef sharks and polar bears, this place has everything.
And when you get tired feeding the seals, there are delicious treats for you too.
The Wizarding World of Harry Potter
This place is the equivalent of Walt Disney World for Harry Potter fans, except it’s a Universal Studios Theme Park. Built on one of the seven islands inside Universal Orlando Resort, this theme park features a plethora of movie props and other fully functioning, life-sized items from the magical world of Harry Potter, sure to make every fan go gaga.
But just in case you can’t stand Harry and his friends (is that even possible?), don’t worry, because this theme park has loads of amusing rides and activities for just about everyone.

If you like thrill seeking roller coaster ride, Islands of Adventure beckons your name!
Dry Tortugas National Park
