Over 87 million tourists flock to Florida every year. There are obviously some pretty nice attractions to get those kinds of numbers. But the great thing about Florida is that there’s a little something different for everyone, city to city and beach to beach. The culture and activities in Boca Raton, for example, vary from what you should expect in Orlando or Clearwater Beach.
