5 Top Reasons to Visit Florida

There's a lot you probably don't know about America's 27th state. Sure, there are the usual stomping grounds of Disney World, St. Augustine, Miami and Daytona, but there are, surprisingly, still some spots that are relatively under-the-radar in the Sunshine State.

So if you're looking to add a little variety to your next vacation -- whether it's going to be about beach time or outdoor activities -- we've got some options for you.

1. Explore the totally awesome and gorgeous Ocala National Forest. 
Close to Orlando, Ocala offers over 600 lakes, streams, rivers and springs -- the springs are perfect to swim, snorkel and dive in.

2. Try snorkeling in Molasses Reef.
Make like the Beach Boys and head to Key Largo, where you can spot cool fish in North America's only living coral reef.

3. Head to Mosquito Lagoon, formerly a prime viewing spot for space shuttle launches.

4. Drive over nothing but ocean on Florida's 113-mile highway.
Yes, you can get stuck in some traffic, but take a gander at those ocean views!

5. Hang with some manatees in Crystal River.
If you're looking to swim or snorkel with manatees, the only place in Florida to legally do so is Crystal River. Added bonus? It's not Sea World.

There are many more Top Reasons to Visit Florida so stay tuned for the next list of reasons why you should just love visiting the sunshine state of Florida.
