AD – This is a collaborative post
I don’t know about anyone else but I’ve never wanted to travel more than I do this year – right when we’re told that we can’t! It’s always the way, isn’t it? Being told you can’t do something just makes you want to do it more. Tell a kid not to press a button and you can bet your bottom dollar they’ll be pressing that button. A lot of people miss travel right now, that’s no surprise. But all we can really do is sit tight, wait it out and get out travel wish lists ready!
Which brings me on nicely to today’s blog post. I’ve done a fair few travel wish list style posts on my blog before which I always enjoy because it always get the travel juices flowing. I haven’t done a HUGE amount of travelling in my life. I’ve explored a fair bit of the UK and been to France 6 times but apart from that and a handful of holidays to the Canary Islands and Spain, that’t about the extent of my travel adventures.
But like I said in the introduction, I’ve never wanted to travel more than I do right now, right when we’re not allowed to. But you can bet that I’ve been doing some serious dreaming about my future holidays to try and scratch the itch to travel.
And today we’re heading to Florida!
I’ve never been to the US before – can you believe it. Nope, not even Disney. It’s just not somewhere I’ve ever really itched to go to. But clearly that has changed and today I want to share some of the places on my Florida travel wish list. If you’re just dying to get across the pond again, get your Florida tickets for your future, magical holidays!
So let’s grab our suitcases, put on our sunglasses and jump on the next flight to sunny Florida! Here’s some of the places on my Florida travel wish list (for when COVID is over, of course!):
Walt Disney World
I couldn’t do a Florida wish list without having Disney fill the top spot, could I? The only Disney park I’ve been to is Paris. I love it but I would definitely like to see some others! Especially after watching The Imagineering Story (which I mentioned in my Disney+ recommendations blog post), I’m eager to visit the other parks and see Epcot, Animal Kingdom and Galaxy’s Edge!
Busch Gardens Tampa Bay
Let’s get a little thrill on! I like to add a bit of extra excitement to my holidays. And if I was going to Florida with my boyfriend, he would definitely want to visit Busch Gardens because he’s a huge theme park junkie! But I’d definitely add this huge park to my travel wish list and enjoy the thrills of Kumba, Cobra’s Curse, Falcon’s Fury and more!
Universal Orlando Resort
This is another pretty obvious choice for this list but definitely somewhere I’d love to go and explore in Florida! I’d love to go and see Diagon Alley and The Wizarding World of Harry Potter (although we will not speak of the author) and Hogsmede as well as all the other fun resorts and attractions it has to offer.
Kennedy Space Center
Okay so we’ve done Disney, we’ve done theme parks, we’ve done thrills. Time to get our nerd glasses on. I’m kidding, there’s NOTHING nerdy about space. I’d absolutely love to visit the Space Center. Every time I see a photo of somewhere there I get mega jealous. It sounds like a fascinating and inspiring day out with a lot to experience and learn.
Everglades National Park
I really like the mix of attractions in this post because next we’re heading to the Everglades National Park. I love my nature as well as my Disney so I feel like this would be a great place to have on my Florida travel wish list. I think I’d like to do a guided tour as well, whilst I was here and see what incredible landscapes and animals you can find along the way.
Anna Maria Island
And finally, a place to relax and unwind after all that excitement at Disney, theme parks and the Space Center! The last place on my Florida travel wish list would be Anna Maria Island which looks like absolute paradise. I’d love to come here to really kick my shoes off and relax on the beach, eat good food and soak up the Florida sunshine. Doesn’t that sound perfect right now?
Have you been to Florida? Have you been to any of these places? Where would you recommend? And what’s on YOUR Florida travel wish list?
