Florida has beautiful beaches, bustling cities, small towns, national parks, theme parks, and so much more. A visit to Florida is a must-do — and with so many places to stay, it can be hard to decide what’s right for you.
For visitors looking for something a little different than your standard beach resort, try glamping Florida! Florida is ready to show you how combining “glamorous” with “camping” can be an awesome and unique experience.
And if you’re looking for something a little more rustic (but not too rustic!) — Florida glamping has that too!
