When it comes to visiting South Florida on your next RV or camping trip, there is no shortage of great places to kick your feet up or have your next adventure. Florida is one of the most exciting and eclectic states in the southeast when it comes to landscape, food, music, sports, arts, and culture.

Some of the top places that we recommend that you visit when you are down in South Florida are Key West, St. Augustine, Miami, and Ft. Lauderdale.

Let’s take a snapshot of some of the top destinations in Florida and what they have to offer.

Key West

If you are looking at going basically as far South in Florida as possible, it is going to be well worth the trip to get down there. From Key Largo, Key West is about a 2-hour drive across The Keys.

Key West is the home of one of the friendliest and most laid-back communities and cultures in the entire state of Florida. Key West has some of the most beautiful beaches and sunsets in the state, along with some of the best seafood as well. The Keys, in general, are a great place to get away if you want to relax on the beach and leave the mainland behind you.

St. Augustine 

Not only is this one of the most historical cities in all of South Florida, St. Augustine is also a rich and beautiful vacation spot where you and the family can start your summer vacation. History is the highlighted feature of the city, with beautiful Spanish architecture and several museums about the history of the area.


Larger cities may be more your pace, and if that is the case you have to head down to Miami. This city has something to offer for everyone who is coming to visit. It has everything from world-class professional and collegiate athletics to gorgeous, white sandy beaches and a nice ocean breeze and everything that is in between. The food scene is booming in Miami. Though they are known for their mastery of Cuban Cuisine, you can take an entire tour around the globe while you are in Miami.

Ft. Lauderdale

This is our last stop, but surely not he least on this tour of Southern Florida. Ft. Lauderdale is a gorgeous and growing getaway city on the southeastern shore. It is known for its sights, shopping, and entertainment, and has plenty in terms of outdoor activities as well. You can head down to the docks and take a riverboat cruise or tour of the area. They have beautiful waterfront parks that you can use to take a walk along the water or a walking tour of the city.
