If you’re struggling to agree on where to visit for your honeymoon, Florida could be the perfect option. The Sunshine State offers a little bit of everything and is great for thrill seekers, beach bathers and romantics alike.

With an endless list of activities to try and beaches to enjoy, travel specialist Florida4Less has compiled a list of the top ten reasons to honeymoon in Florida so you can enjoy the trip of a lifetime.  

The stunning beaches

If you’re a sun worshipper and love to spend days relaxing on a sun lounger, you’re sure to enjoy Florida’s 1,350 miles of stunning coastline. Make the most of the sun and sea with a relaxing day or two on the beach!

The most incredible road trips

If you’re keen to take to the road to explore, Florida is the place to be. One of the most scenic routes in the country, the Florida State road A1A, runs from Key West at the state’s southernmost tip to its northern border with Georgia. The route runs up the eastern coast along the Atlantic Ocean and is the perfect way to indulge in an all-American road trip.

An underwater paradise

Explore the underwater scenery by hiring a glass-bottomed boat that will let you see the world under the waves. Alternatively, if you’re not one for boats, take a drive down to the stunning Gulf of Mexico to appreciate the beautiful clear waters there.

A chance to indulge

When it comes to great food, Florida has it all. Surrounded by ocean that’s teeming with life, seafood is one of Florida’s specialities, and there are plenty of idyllic beachfront restaurants to enjoy it in style. If seafood isn’t really your thing, Florida is full of great steakhouses and traditional American diners, so you can really indulge. 

Explore the Everglades

Some of the world’s most endangered species live among the mangroves in the Everglades National Park. A must-see for animal lovers, airboats are available to hire with a diver – just keep an eye out for the alligators!

An adrenaline boost

Florida’s major theme parks are renowned around the world. All of the major resorts in Florida have rides to get the adrenaline pumping. Try out the Revenge of the Mummy at Universal Orlando, or the Journey to Atlantis water ride at SeaWorld Orlando.

Treat yourself 

Your honeymoon is the perfect excuse to treat yourself and you won’t be able to resist doing some shopping in stunning cities such as Miami. Enjoy an afternoon strolling around the shops, stopping off for lunch and coffee breaks as you go. Just be sure to pack your sunglasses and some comfortable shoes.

Alternative activities

Florida has so much to offer. If you’re looking for something other than rides and thrills, be sure to plan in some time for day trips. The Orlando Science Center and Central Florida Zoo both make for great days out. With the state renowned for its golf scene, why not embrace your competitive side and try your hand at golfing too? 

Be at one with nature

Florida is famous for its vast and varied wildlife and is home to over 500 native species. Visit Crystal River for a once in a lifetime opportunity to swim with manatees, or see alligators in a more controlled environment with a visit to Gatorland in Orlando.

Embrace your inner child

If you’ve always dreamt about visiting the Magic Kingdom and all its wonders, your honeymoon is the perfect time to enjoy it. Indulge in all things Disney and pick up plenty of souvenirs along the way so you can remember your special trip forever.

With its stunning beaches and an amazing atmosphere, Florida is an ideal destination to enjoy your honeymoon and offers the perfect balance of fun and relaxation.
