Florida is the most popular State visited by British tourists and has the most attractions. We have had four separate holidays there in 1981, 1991 1999 and 2003.
The majority of flights to Florida from the UK go to Orlando as this is the place where the most popular attractions are situated. The best time to travel is in June or September when the place is less crowded and when discount flights are sometimes available.
DO NOT travel in March. This is the period when American students take their holidays and the motels are usually full and expensive.
It is not normally necessary to pre book in the two months mentioned above. You should choose the town of Kissimmee if you want to be near the attractions. Some of the lesser expensive motels are:- Motel 6, Best Western, Super 8, and Day's Inn.
