Holiday villas in Florida

It’s no secret that Florida’s successful theme parks and attractions have assisted the state in earning the title of “Top destination state of 2011”. If asked to think of Florida, most people would visualise the highly acclaimed Cinderella’s Castle, Mickey Mouse or even Shamu but how and why did Florida earn its nickname as “The Sunshine State"?

Florida was discovered in 1513 by a Spanish explorer called Juan Ponce de Leon who pronounced the area “La Florida” (Flowery Land) in honour of Spain’s Easter celebrations “Pascua Florida” (Feast of the Flowers). However, a pivotal moment for Florida’s economy was in 1965 when Walt Disney announced plans for a new theme park in the USA to be named after him which changed tourism rates dramatically. Due to the happiness, fun and weather which the state provided, the nickname “The Sunshine State” slowly but surely began to take root.

Today, Orlando contains more than 12 major water and theme parks which are all of equal importance and not one should be missed! These include Disney’s magic kingdom, Sea World, Epcot, Hollywood Studios, Animal Kingdom, Typhoon Lagoon, Blizzard Beach, Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure, Wet ‘N’ Wild, Aquatica, and more. But how in this current economical climate can people afford a holiday to Florida? Perfect Getaways is offering a vast array of holiday villas in Florida for bargain prices such as Sunny side Villa, Penelope’s Paradise Villa and Ward Florida Villa and all are available directly from the owner, giving the best possible price.

However, there is more to Florida then meets the eye. For example, did you know that Walt Disney’s original theme park plans were to build the attraction on the Florida East Coast resort of Miami? Due to hurricane threats, however, Orlando was selected as a safer place for the park and all the subsequent holiday homes to be sited. Although not completely free from hurricane damage, the region is less at risk.

Miami more than makes up for its lack of theme parks with its high profile celebrity, fashion and music culture. Miami Beach and South Beach has long been the chosen destination for celebrities ever since Sylvester Stallone and Madonna bought holiday accommodation in the State in the 1990’s. Since then Miami has been painted as a picture of celebrity lifestyle in various television shows such as “The Hills” and “Keeping up with the Kardashians”. The top Miami clubs such as Cameo, LIV, and Mansion often see stars including Christina Aguilera, Eva Longoria and Bruno Mars walk through their doors. So if you fancy living the lavish lifestyle without the celebrity price tag, visit our website where you will find a wide range of properties to suit you.
