Places of Interest

Florida Sunshine State, that’s the nickname of the sunny southeastern Federal State of the United States, with its bright white shimmering sand beaches. The awesome nature, the tropical to subtropical climate and the relaxed lifestyle of the people make up the special charm of this destination.

Florida's coasts show very different faces: The Atlantic coast in the east has mile-long sand beaches with often very high waves, perfect for wave surfing. The Gulf Coast to the West provides calmer water, gently sloping, long sandy beaches, the sea shell paradise Sanibel and Captiva Iceland, many water sports and more than 80 golf courses. Here life has a more leisurely rhythm; there’s almost always holiday atmosphere.

The cottages on the Gulf Coast are a good starting point for excursions in the various regions of this versatile holiday region. A trip to the Everglades (distance about 20 km) is offered as well as a visit to Disneyland in Orlando (about 257 kilometers).

It is especially worth mentioning to visit the Florida Keys - a 180 km long, with 42 bridges connected chain of narrow islands - that stretch down from Key Largo, the southern tip of Florida, towards to the southwest to the bustling Key West.

Besides these main attractions conservation areas and many small animals and adventure parks ensure variety for guests between their sunbathing.
