Central Florida

All the fun under the sun

Looking for fun in the sun? Central Florida has something for everyone! We’ve got you covered from coast-to-coast. 

The east coast is home to the famous Daytona Beach and Daytona International Speedway. Just to the north, enjoy a “Dine with the Chef” experience at SALT at the Ritz Carlton on Amelia Island—one of the only five-diamond restaurants in Florida. Or venture through Jacksonville’s charming downtown riverfront streets dotted with cafés, boutique shops, and a lively dining and nightlife scene. Jacksonville also has world-class golf courses and miles of pristine white-sand beaches.

On the west coast, the Tampa/St. Petersburg area is a unique mix of urban culture and Florida adventure, including museums, parks, waterfront walkways, restaurants, shops, and family-friendly attractions. Right in the center of it all is “The Theme Park Capital of the World”—Orlando! More than just amusement parks, the city also boasts an amazing art scene, culinary and sporting attractions, and is an intellectual capital to boot!
