- Sugary sands and palm trees define Fort Lauderdale Beach. A long promenade invites lazy strolling and water sports keep adventure-seekers happy all day.
- The Daytona Beach Boardwalk and Pier sets the scene on this vast stretch of sand. Combine a day of swimming with thrill rides, classic arcade games and boutique shopping.
- Splash in the clear waters of the Gulf of Mexico at Panama City Beach and don’t miss the romantic sunsets. Artificial reefs offshore create plenty of action for scuba divers.
