Curate your perfect Florida vacation with the best experiences, comforts and accommodations.

Family running and playing in surf

There are two things you can count on when you visit Florida: good weather and great times. The Sunshine State boasts 800 miles of gorgeous beaches and dozens of dynamic cities offering food, fun and fabulous experiences. You’ll discover low-key activities in the Keys, family recreation in Fort Lauderdale and sensational salsa dancing in Miami—and wherever you go, there’s a Hilton® hotel to suit your adventure.

Here’s a roundup of must-visit Florida vacation spots, and just a few of the reasonswhy they’re always in demand.

Destination: Tampa & St. Petersburg

The Tampa Bay area is a perfect mix of downtown and beach town.

Why you should go: The Tampa Bay area stretches from Tampa to St. Petersburg, and there’s plenty to explore on the beach and in the city. Coveted attractions include Busch Gardens, The Dalí (Salvador Dalí Museum), St. Pete Pier, Honeymoon Island State Park, and the picture-perfect Clearwater Beach.

Where to stay: Hilton Clearwater Beach Resort & Spa, a beachfront hotel; Hilton St. Petersburg Bayfront; or Hilton Tampa Downtown

Theme parks may steal the spotlight, but Orlando is so much more.

Why you should go: Affectionately called O-Town, Orlando boasts more than 100 lakes perfect for boating and kayaking, nature preserves that beg to be explored by bike or on foot, ziplining for thrill seekers, and interesting museums for those who enjoy the great indoors. And of course, Orlando is also home to Walt Disney World theme parks, as well as SeaWorld, Discovery Cove, and Universal Studios Florida.

Where to stay: Hilton Orlando, home of the world’s largest and tallest escape room, or Waldorf Astoria Orlando

Destination: Florida Keys

The Keys make a strong case for beach living.

Why you should go: You’d be hard-pressed to find a more interesting area than the archipelago called the Florida Keys. The region is home to 800 keys across 180 miles, with the most well-known being Key West and Key Largo. Here, beach time and water sports reign supreme, with plenty of opportunities to snorkel, kayak, dive, deep-sea fish and explore. When the stars come out, so does the nightlife. A trip to Key West isn’t complete without a stroll down Duval Street, which features more than 200 restaurants, shops and attractions.

Where to stay: Bakers Cay Resort Key Largo or Casa Marina Key West, which boasts the largest private beach on Key West

Destination: West Palm Beach and Boca Raton

Experience the ultimate fine dining and extravagant shopping.

Street and shops in West Palm Beach

Why you should go: If palm tree-lined streets, art museums, gardens, greenbelts, luxury retailers, boutiques and fine cuisine are your thing, then welcome to utopia. The posh cities of West Palm Beach, Delray Beach, and Boca Raton are just as famous for the shopping and cultural experiences of Clematis Street as they are for the turquoise ocean waves.

Where to stay: Hilton West Palm Beach, where you can reserve a ride on a Moke, a small four-person buggy; or The Ray Hotel Delray Beach, which features the namesake restaurant of Akira Back, a Michelin-starred chef. 

Destination: Miami

Pack your flip-flops and dancing shoes.

Why you should go: If there was ever a gold-star city for incredible nightlife, it’s Miami. Nicknamed the Magic City, Miami is famous for so many things: art deco architecture, nightlife and clubs, Latin cuisine and dancing, luxe shopping, and, of course, beaches like Surfside, Sunny Isles, Miami Beach, North Beach and South Beach. Visitors also love the white sands of Haulover Beach, which is popular for surfing.

Where to stay: Hilton Cabana Miami Beach, which offers beach access north of South Beach, away from the hustle and bustle.

Destination: Fort Lauderdale

You’ll see why Fort Lauderdale is called the “Venice of America.”
