Last month, Visit Florida premiered its Florida: Still the Perfect Escape travel video to promote vacations in the Sunshine State.  

The theme song’s chorus, “When you need it bad, we’ve got it good,” invites viewers from around the country to explore all that Florida has to offer.

Looking to have some fun in the sun? Here are some of Florida’s top cities to plan your next destination vacation:

Clearwater Beach

With white sand and clear Gulf waters, Clearwater Beach has some of the most spectacular beaches in the country.

When the beaches close, there’s plenty of nightlife where you can enjoy drinks, live music while listening to the waves crash.  


Best known for its beaches, nightspots, and celebrity-chef eateries, South Beach is one of the hottest spots in Miami.

If South Beach isn’t your scene, visit Everglades National Park, where you’ll find numerous rare and endangered species like the manatee, the American crocodile, and the elusive Florida panther.

St. Petersburg

With miles of beaches, surf shops, and boutiques, St. Pete Beach is consistently ranked as one of the country’s top beaches.

Tucked away in the southernmost end of St. Pete Beach is Pass-A-Grille Beach, where there are four miles of natural shoreline and tasty eateries like Paradise Grille and Hurricane Seafood Restaurant.

Enjoy art from one of the most celebrated artists of all time at the Salvador Dali Museum. Recognized internationally by the Michelin Guide with a three-star rating, the Dali has an unparalleled collection of over 2,400 Salvador Dalí works, including 300 oil paintings, watercolors and drawings, and more than 2,100 prints, photographs, posters, textiles, and sculptures.


It’s hard to believe, but not everyone comes to Florida for the beaches. Other major attractions are Walt Disney World Resort, Walt Disney’s Magic Kingdom, Epcot, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge. For movie buffs, there is Universal Studios Florida. The movie-themed complex features numerous attractions, rollercoasters, along with restaurants and shopping.  


If it’s a mix of culture and thrills you’re seeking when you visit Florida, Tampa is the place to be!

Museum of Science and Industry, also known as MOSI, is dedicated to advancing public interest, knowledge, and understanding of science, industry, and technology through exhibits, an IMAX Theater, Planetarium, and Science Works Theater.

One of the world’s top aquariums, Florida Aquarium features more than 7,000 aquatic plants and animals from Florida and all over the world.

From wild life to rides, Busch Gardens is Tampa's ultimate family adventure destination. There you’ll find thrill rides, live entertainment, and more than 12,000 different wildlife.

Across the street is Adventure Island, a water park that features 30 acres of water rides, dining, and other attractions.
