If you have been looking around at holidays in Florida, one thing you can’t have failed to have noticed is the huge choice of holiday accommodations available. The best part about this vast range is that you can find accommodation to suit all budgets. Planning a cheap holiday to the Sunshine State is not an easy task, but by doing your homework and checking out all the accommodations available you can save yourself quite a bit of money.
You won’t have to compromise on comfort or quality either to find your perfect accommodation. This is one of the most consistent tourist areas in the world, and people flock here in there millions from around the globe, thus making the competition all the more fierce. While top end hotels may offer luxurious surroundings and fantastic views of the beach, many budget ones have great locations too.
Before you start randomly looking around and trawling your way through the thousands of hotels, villas, motels etc that are listed on the various travel sites, decide on where you are going to make your base for your Florida holiday. If you are one of the many coming to do the Orlando theme park circuit, for example, you could stay right in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the city, or opt to stay outside and drive in each day.
Kissimmee villas are extremely popular with those who want easy access to Orlando, (it is only a 30 minute drive away) but want to escape in the evenings. These villas offer the best of both worlds and large family groups in particular find them an excellent accommodation option as they often have up to 8 bedrooms, meaning everyone can stay under one roof without tripping over each other and ultimately saving a lot of money as well.
Another option that is increasing in popularity is the two centre holiday, where you spend a week in a city environment and then a week at the beach, or vice versa. Whilst Florida boasts some of the best beaches you will find anywhere, ask yourself where Floridians go for a beach holiday. The Myrtle Beach hotels, in South Carolina, are in superb locations and there are some amazing deals to be had on the travel websites.
If you want to stay in Florida for the full duration of your holiday and not venture into other states, then you will find beach villas and hotels overlooking all the main beaches, and waking up every morning to ocean views, with the breeze rustling through the palm trees, gives you the impression you are on a tropical island, not in one of the busiest states in the US.
Your search for Florida holiday accommodation won’t be a speedy process with so many to choose from, but by narrowing down the type of accommodation you are looking for, and where you want it, can save you a lot of time and, more often than not, quite a bit of cash too.
