Hello,

I am planning for a trip to Florida but dont know much about it. Can someone please tell me a couple of interesting places to vist, if i plan a trip for 3-4 days.

I have heard that there is miami and tampa. Are both in drivable distances? Will i be able to cover both miami and tampa in 3-4 days with less stress.

Please give me some advice on how could i plan my trip.

Wow... there's so many places you could visit! Jacksonville/St. Augustine, Tampa, Naples, Miami/Ft. Lauderdale, the Keys, Panama City, Vero Beach, I could go on and on!

You could drive from Tampa to Miami, it's not too too far, about 300 miles, but I think you'll find most cities in Florida provide enough to fill 3-4 days, especially if you're in the Miami area.

There are so many Florida tourism websites out there in internet land......I suggest you google what kind of things you want to do and go from there.

Beaches, rivers, theme parks and caving....we've got a lot here.

Florida is geographically like Italy... a loooong skinny peninsula. You'll have to make several visits to experience it all and you'll still miss something. If you're flying into Tampa, then stay there and check out Sarasota, Venice, and Naples. If you're flying into Miami then concentrate on S. Florida. Either way, you'll be plenty busy for 3 - 4 days.

You're coming to Florida and no Disney World Orlando??????????!! I personally like Sea World better, but there are so many things to do in Central Florida. Go to the Space Coast, Daytona/New Smyrna/Cocoa beaches, even some smaller theme parks like Gator Land (between Orlando & Kissimmee). Or see/hear the bells at Bok Tower in Lake Wales; Cypress Gardens in Winter Haven, Silver Springs in Ocala.

No way will you see the entirety of Florida in one quick trip! Come again!

Oh, and don't forget sunscreen and sunglasses.

There's soooo much to see in Florida, that you'll miss A LOT in just 3-4 days. You could easily spend 4 days in Miami alone and still not see everything in Miami. Here are some really popular destinations in Miami:

-South Beach
-Downtown Miami
-Miami Seaquarium
-Miami MetroZoo
-shopping in Miami Beach (Collins Av and Lincoln Road)
-Vizcaya
-Everglades National Park
-Jungle Island
-Biltmore Hotel
-Miami Science Museum
-Little Havana (Calle Ocho)
-Lowe Art Museum
-Bass Art Museum
-Wolfsonian-FIU Museum
-Coconut Grove
-Ancient Spanish Monastery
-Drive around Coral Gables (Miracle Mile for example)
