The Florida region
A mild, sunny climate is one of Florida's most important natural resources, making it a major tourist center. Average annual temperatures range from 65 degrees to 70 degrees Farenheit / 18 to 21 Centigrade/Celcius in the north, and from 74 to 77F (23 to 25C) in the southern peninsula and on the Keys. Around Davenport and Disney areas you can expect highs of 24F in January and February, and 32F in July and August.
Florida is the premiere attraction state in the United States. Florida has more theme parks, entertainment centers, resorts, sports venues and vacation destinations than any other area in the country - and probably in the world. Vacation opportunities are virtually endless. Don't forget the Kennedy Space Center! Kennedy Space Center - Tours and exhibits of the world famous space port. For those vacationing on the east coast of Florida, this is a nice alternative to the theme parks.

"A great stay away from the hustle and bustle"
This was our first time in Florida, and it proved to be a fantastic holiday with some great memories. The villa itself has all the facilities we needed, and was in a quiet residential area. We stopped over Halloween and my daughter did some trick or treating with some of the neighbouring children, which was really fun for her.
Obviously a holiday in Florida will probably include Disney, and the parks were about 15 minutes drive away. Very easy to get to, although our TomTom proved very helpful. I can also recommend a trip out to Kennedy Space Centre, a really interesting place.
Numerous restaurants line the road back from Disney so there are plenty of eating options. Food in Disney itself was disappointing. We rather liked two chains - Logans (burgers and stuff) and Bonefish Grill (clue in the name).
For eating in, the Publix supermarket chain was really good, a cut above Walmart (and then some).
The owner proved to be very helpful via email (free Wifi was available) when we struggled to work out the TV, an easily solved issue.
