One of the most popular touristic states of all, Florida has a lot of aspects and features that set it apart from the rest of America. Even its geographical position on a peninsula, jutting out between the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean, helps it to stand out when compared to other states, and its unique attractions like Universal Studios Orlando and the Walt Disney World Resort theme parks add to the Sunshine State's unique allure.


With so much sunshine and warm weather to be enjoyed, as well as an enormous stretch of coastline all around it, Florida is also a great state for beach-goers. In fact, the beaches of the Sunshine State are often ranked as some of the best in the entire world, especially those on the Gulf Coast side. Gulf Coast beaches in Florida like Clearwater, Fort Myers, Naples, Tampa, and Sanibel Island all stand out as some of the best in America, and even those further up the coast on the Florida Panhandle, in cities like Destin, Pensacola, and Panama City Beach, stand out as some stunning locations that people of all ages can enjoy.

Whether you're interested in heading off on a fishing charter, hitting the waves for some water sports, strolling along the beach to watch the sun go down, or simply sunbathing on the soft, white sands and working on your tan, the Florida Gulf Coast is a great place to be and is also home to some top class RV parks and campgrounds. Many RV enthusiasts enjoy driving all along the Florida Gulf Coast and stopping off at many of the different RV parks along the way, with some locations even offering direct access onto the beach and amazing Gulf of Mexico views.
