Major Tourist Areas in Florida

Central Florida:

Includes Orlando and the “Space Coast” near Cocoa Beach.  This area is tourist central.  Home to Disney, Universal, Sea World + the Kennedy Space Center and beaches.  With so much information about this area, we decided a whole page to it.

Daytona Beach & St. Augustine:

Iconic beach with great surfing and the NASCAR racing.  Not far from Daytona is the historic town of St. Augustine — the oldest city in the “new world” and where Ponce de Leon believed he found the fountain of youth.
