Where to go in America for winter holiday sun
A winter holiday for families in Florida
Florida is an amazing place to go for a winter holiday, because it is the place for some of the best family attractions in the States. It is home to glamorous Miami, laid-back Clearwater and family-favourite Orlando. The temperature in Florida hovers around 15 degrees, with little rainfall, so conditions are perfect for exploring the beaches, parks and cities of the aptly named Sunshine State.
Florida is a great winter destination for families, as the crowds at the parks have dissipated along with the intense summer heat. Choose a villa in Orlando for easy access to Disney World and Universal Studios. These spectacular homes are great for even the biggest family holidays. Many of them have fantastic facilities including game rooms and private pools. Explore winter must-dos in Orlando here. Some of our favourite Florida villas include;

Many coastal and southern parts of California bask in glorious sunshine throughout the winter, meaning it’s a wonderful spot for some winter sun. Temperatures in California reach a balmy 16 degrees during the day, and are cooler at night, so winter is a great time to explore the wonderful outdoor sights in California, such as Yellowstone National Park.
