Florida is best known as a vacation paradise offering visitors fun-in-the-sun at famous Florida beaches dotting miles of shoreline - at Daytona, Miami, Fort Lauderdale, the Florida Keys - and dozens off other top hot spots while also making it a magnet for college students on spring break.
While tourists pack the main tourist location, that means that native Floridians are free to get away from it all from June to August at one of the best state park systems in the nation.
As one off America's primo tourist hubs, in Florida you'll also find thousands of privately-owned campgrounds statewide offering a huge variety of other places to camp - whether it's on the beach, by a lazy river, a forest, or quiet stream - or situated in a luxury rv park, camper cabin, a tent or a tiki hut!
However, it is the central & family-friendly Florida that remains Florida's most popular destination - as
millions each year flock to Orlando
to visit nearby Disney World and Epcot Center and the Kennedy Space Center, each with a campground nearby guaranteed to appeal to kids of all ages.
