A year-round destination, it provides the perfect outlet for folks seeking an escape from wintry chills or simply a relaxed family-friendly outing. But the true beauty of Florida is that it can open your eyes to unexpected delights  ~ Visit the USA

Whilst many holidays to Florida consist of adrenaline pumping adventures, there are plenty of ways to switch-off, unwind and relax. From massages on the beach, to floating down a real lazy river, here is VISIT FLORIDA’s top five ways to actually de-stress:

Tiki Beach Massage on Anna Maria Island

White sand, clear blue water and the sound of crashing waves, set the scene for a relaxing aromatherapy massage with Sea-renity Spa, on Anna Maria Island. Just head for the tiki hut on Bradenton Beach for a private or couples’ massage. Massage lessons are also available. Top tip – book for sunset!

Float Along a Real Lazy River in Marion County

Let your troubles float away on Rainbow River, located just an hour and a half drive east of Orlando. Rent a “tube” from Rainbow River State Park to begin your two-hour float along the clear spring-fed river, spotting wildlife along the way. A convenient tram service will then take you and your tube back to where you started.

Make S’Mores Around a Firepit on Clearwater Beach

Spend an evening on the beach, around a cosy firepit at the Sandpearl Resort on Clearwater Beach. Collect your DIY s’mores kit from the hotel and head for the beach, to enjoy sunset, food and beverage service, and the USA’s most popular fireside sticky treat, s’mores – marshmallow and chocolate sandwiched between a biscuit (basically, a melted Wagonwheel).

Beach Yoga in Fort Lauderdale

Start your day the right way at the W Hotel in Fort Lauderdale, with a sunrise yoga flow class on the beach. The ultra-chic hotel offers beachside yoga four times a week and provides yoga mats, towels and refreshments. The hotel offers complimentary fitness classes for all hotel guests.

Evening Paddle Tours in The Keys

See the Florida Keys in a whole new light on a night-time eco tour with Aquaholic Adventures. Kayaks and Stand Up Paddleboards are fitted with LED lights, helping you see through the water, as you gently paddle through the mangroves in search of birds and sea life. Sunset tours are also available.
