Florida With Kids

Most traveling families in the United States eventually find themselves in Florida. The home of Walt Disney World, Florida also offers fabulous family resorts and great beaches. You could travel to a different place to Florida every year, and still never duplicate a spot.

While most people do think of the greater Orlando area when they think about Florida (and with good reason), there's so much more to Florida. On the panhandle, you can enjoy gorgeous beaches and fun beach homes.

In Sarasota, you can explore the Ringling Museum in between beach visits. You can go shelling on Marco and Sanibel Islands, or explore the Atlantic Coast on Amelia Island.

Below, you'll find all of our Florida with kids posts.

Note that we've experienced some of the destinations/attractions below at no cost for purposes for review in the past.
