Truly but sadly, after a spate of aviation disasters happened over the past few months, include the still missing MAS MH370, bomb-crashed MAS MH17 flight in Ukraine, Taiwanese TransAsia flight crashed in Penghu, and the lately crashed Algerian flight, people are wary of air travel now. While we are all heartbroken and feeling sorrow about the fatal incidences, a better future is also hoped for. At least we should plan some short holidays to cheer us up a little, if possible with no air travel involed for the time being. For the lucky Americans, holidays to Florida would surely one of the great options.
Widely known as the Sunshine State of US, Florida’s warm climate and high number of annual sunshine hours make it the ideal holiday destination. Thousands of people head off on one of the many fun holidays to Florida every year and, with the state’s wide range of attractions and numerous themeparks, it’s easy to see why it’s so popular.
One of the latest attractions in Orlando, Florida would be the new Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley that opened to public early this month in Universal Florida theme park. This is the extension of its first park, the Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade, which opened in 2010. Diagon Alley is much bigger than Hogsmeade, and it is now including the significant movie backdrops of Diagon Alley, with the wand shop, Hogwarts Express boarding on platform 9 3/4 of King’s Cross station of London.
Pricing? By getting a joint ticket to both Hogsmeade and Diagon Valley theme parks at USD136 for 1 day or USD176.99 for 2 days, it is truly good money well spent! That said, be cautious of extra long queue! Read more information on the Diagon Valley theme park as well as other attractions such as the Transformer the Ride-3D on the official Universal Studio Orlando website.
To get us even more exhilarated, Florida offers so much more than just theme parks and other man-made attractions.
Some of the top travel destinations of Florida include the Everglades National Park that features the most rare and endangered species in the U.S., St. Augustine, the longest continually inhabited European founded city in the United States, Clearwater beach with impeccable beaches and inviting waters, Naples for high-end shopping, world-class culture, and sophisticated dining, Winter Haven with beautiful lakes, a majestic tower, a world-class collection of vintage aircrafts, and beautiful botanical gardens, and off course the Florida Keys, the American Caribbean that features world class fishing, scuba diving and snorkeling, boating, sailing, kayaking and eco-tours. And we haven’t mentioned about the Miami, the paradise for party animals!
