Gainesville & Cedar Key
Price from £999
Take an excursion into the unexpected side of Florida with this 10-day tour into the heart of the state, discovering its 19th century history, its modern university (one of the largest on the country), the wonderful countryside and its rich equestrian heritage. Start with four days in Gainesville, home of the huge University of Florida, and much more besides, including a major theatre, a historic state park, a growing arts scene and a thriving small-town charm. The fabulous dining is a notable facet of local life, as is the booming craft brewing business, and we highlight the very best here. Then it’s on to the Panhandle with a trip to Cedar Key, offering a chance to enjoy the relaxing coastal location. For an alternative view of the Sunshine State, this takes some beating.
Price includes compact car hire and room only. Our team of Florida travel experts will endeavour to get you the best deal.
