Hidden Treasures of Florida by:Juan Vargas
The Everglades, also known as 'river of grass', is the one of a kind attraction featuring loads of water, grass and alligators. Located in southern Florida, this vast area is strongly recommended to those looking for natural adventures. It is best to visit the Everglades during the winter session -which is not too cold and the wildlife and flowers are in abundance, and tourists are more likely to find a guided tour.
Sarasota is a vibrant city located on the Gulf Coast; it is also the capital of the Sarasota Area and there are loads of places to go shopping, dining and exploring: the Gulf Coast World of Science and Marie Selby Botanical Gardens offer a variety of wildlife, botanical and tech shows for everyone. Other places to go are North Lido Beach, Palm Avenue and Sarasota Bay.
The most captivating beaches and sunsets in Florida are found at Captiva and Sanibel, on the Gulf Coast, which are also well known for seafood. Marco Island and Naples host a wide variety of broad activities, The Naples Nature Centre, with its three thousand gallon marine aquarium, and The Tin City Complex and Lowdermilk Park for sea life.
Palm Beach is the house of Florida's most glamorous resorts on the Atlantic Coast. Not only have lived artists and billionaires, such as Rockefellers and Kennedy, but also many of the top tennis players in the world.
Amongst the best places to see live sports, Bonita Beach, Daytona, Fort Lauderdale, Gainesville and Miami are highly recommended; this include from motorsports to horse racing, passing by professional and university basketball, football and baseball.
For musicals, theatre and concerts, the Theatre of Performing Arts in Miami Beach or Coconut Grove Playhouse are worth the visit. Shopping malls in Key Largo are on themselves an attraction.
When it comes to architecture, the Art Deco district on Ocean Drive in Miami is almost unique and trendy. The keys offer a completely different style, more traditional American. And for Art in general, Rubens and Rembrandt's masterpieces are exhibited at the Bass Museum in Miami, and there is an entire museum dedicated to Dali in Tampa.
