If you’re all about getting back to nature on your travels, then you will not be disappointed in this venue, which is also just about as all-American as you can get.
Plus, with cozy cabins, you’ll experience the warmth of southern nights, storytelling around campfires, and maybe even a country song or two. What could be more exciting?
3 – Chow Down On Key Lime Pie In Key West
Head to the southernmost tip and bask in the bohemian vibes of Key West for a laidback pace of life that the Floridians really do best. While you’re there, get a taste of the classic American dessert, Key Lime Pie. Sweet, tart, and oh-so-delicious! It’s one dish you’ll want to sample again and again.
4 – Launch Into Space At Kennedy Space Center
There is nothing more American than science and space exploration, so why not take the time to feel the American spirit of discovery and exploration for yourself by witnessing a stunning rocket launch? While you’re at the Kennedy Space Center, you may also meet an astronaut, touch a moon rock, and dive deep into the stories of America’s space pioneers. Not only is it so very interesting and exciting, but it really is another quintessentially American experience to have.
5 – Dive Into American Pop Culture At Universal Studios
Disney isn’t the only pop culture-based theme park in town, not when you are in Florida, at least!

Get your dose of thrills and spills as you dive into the world of the movies you love the most and you will be sure to love every single second of your time there.
