If you’re planning a trip, be prepared to face much bigger dilemma than just ‘which theme park shall we go to first?’ The theme parks of Central Florida put the state on the map but few overseas visitors knew the untold story; the beautiful Florida beaches, the hidden coves, the incredible coastal sunsets, the jazz clubs, the one-of-a-kind shops and the laid back lifestyle of the ‘other Florida’. Whilst Orlando and the excitement of the parks awaits, there’s also Miami, the Gulf Coast and the Florida Keys to choose from - or why not combine them all?
Bon Voyage has specialised in holidays to Florida and across the USA since 1979. We know how to build an itinerary that meets all of your requirements, whether you’re looking to hop from theme-park to theme-park or explore Florida by Harley & Convertible ( as featured in 'The Times - Best 100 Holidays' ) - we can help you plan the perfect trip.
When you're ready to work on that tan, there is plenty of white sand beach to choose from. The bigger resorts will also have fabulous pools, so you can divide your time between the two. When it's time to dine or do a spot of shopping, be sure to hit Lincoln Road - the pedestrian area is chock full of restaurants, boutiques and nightlife.
If you'd rather be in residential neighbourhood - it's Coral Gables all the way. The Biltmore Hotel is one of our favourite places to stay and has the largest pool in the USA. Johnny Weismuller (Tarzan) and Esther Williams were regulars here back in the day. Be sure to visit the Venetian Pool too - a restored aquifer filled pool dating back to the 1920s. Bike riding along the residential streets is ideal and when it's time for a bite and some retail therapy - be sure to hit the Miracle Mile and Shops at Merrick Park.
All of our Florida holiday accommodation has been hand picked for your consideration and at least one member of the Bon Voyage team will have visited each property.
An increasingly popular option for family holidays in Florida, particularly in Orlando, are 2,3 and 4-bedroom apartments and villas as part of a full resort complex. Here you have all the convenience of your own home-away-from-home on your Florida holidays, but with all the amenities and services of a top class hotel on site. Lucky for you, we're here to help!
Where you stay is the heart of your holiday. Location reigns supreme but do you prefer resort facilities or unique and boutique? Historic and old world or modern and shiny?
We aim to present choices across the spectrum but there are many hundreds of places to stay and not room to feature them all. Do speak to your Bon Voyage travel consultant and click the video for our take on this important topic.
We would rate the Bellagio as one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in. Fabulous, glitzy, exciting. We loved having breakfast at the poolside café... one of our best experiences ever. If it hadn't been for you we wouldn't have had the suite or cabana and we loved them. We both agreed that the hotel was the best for us and you had suggested that so well done!Leonore & Mike Rumford
