Port Canaveral (Sensation and Sovereign)
You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to find Port Canaveral thrilling. This is the home of the Kennedy Space Center, where you can catch a fascinating glimpse into the history – and future – of the U.S. space program. Or, take a leisurely stroll along the Cocoa Beach Pier; the shopping is great and the beach views are truly “out of this world”.
Miami (Imagination, Majesty, Fascination)
Miami is an international mecca with a colorful skyline and trend-setting culture. Claiming its place as a truly international city, you can feel Miami vibrate with the energies of different cultures coming together to revel in the beautiful ocean scenery and near-perfect tropical weather. Whether you’re taking in the sights at a South Beach cafe, browsing the open-air shops of Bayside Marketplace or enjoying “un cortadito” in Little Havana, Miami is a melting pot for virtually anyone.
Ft. Lauderdale (Enchantment)
Port Everglades is Fort Lauderdale’s waterway to the world. This cosmopolitan city spans 23 miles of Atlantic coastline. That’s 23 miles of sun, sand and surf for you to enjoy. World-class golf, dining, shopping and sporting events await you in this city by the sea, first made famous in the 1960 film “Where The Boys Are”.
What’s the attraction in Tampa? How about the Southeast’s largest wooden double roller coaster where the cars pass inches in front of each other at crossing speeds of 100 mph? Or maybe it’s the 300 acres of animal exhibits, entertainment and thrill rides. Tampa’s world-famous Busch Gardens attracts millions of visitors every year and, with all that it has to offer, it’s no wonder.
Jacksonville — or “Jax”, as it’s known to its residents — is now one of the insurance and banking capitals of the south. A metropolis replete with hotels, restaurants, attractions and nightclubs, Jax still has a number of quaint, older neighborhoods to explore. There are also plenty of beaches, golf courses and state parks to enjoy.
Mobile is one of the oldest port cities in America and its diverse history is reflected in every aspect of the city, from its architecture to its culture. Mobile’s rich Spanish, French, African and Creole heritage distinguish this centuries old city from all others in the state of Alabama. Throughout her 300-year history, Mobile’s inviting climate and southern hospitality, along with its historic sights and fun attractions, offer something for the entire family.
Chartered in 1839, Galveston Island, located on the upper Texas coast of the Gulf of Mexico, was the principal port into the southwest during the 19th century. This coastal town has experienced a recent revitalization, making it one of America ‘s newest beach resorts. Better than the beautifully restored Victorian architecture of its historic downtown district, is the southern hospitality of Galveston’s residents.
Los Angeles (Pride, Monarch, Paradise)
Consisting of 11 miles of beaches, 98 parks, five public golf courses and the largest municipally operated marina system in the nation, Long Beach is truly a paradise for lovers of the outdoors. The near perfect weather and friendly residents are an added bonus! Visit historic sites, such as Rancho Los Alamitos, the Tallship Californian and the Long Beach Museum of Art. Don’t forget the legendary Queen Mary Hotel, rumored to be haunted; you might even spot some of her permanent “visitors”.
New Orleans (Fantasy) : New Orleans is a city that knows how to have fun. Whether you take time to savor authentic Creole cuisine, browse through quaint antique shops in the French Quarter, or take a tour through historic mansions that date back over a century, you’re sure to find dozens of other things to delight you in this happy, high-spirited city that pulses with the beat of Dixieland jazz. And don’t forget to take a ride on one of the city’s picturesque trolley cars.
