Green Motion awarded the Green World Award 2023
What a win!
Florida’s reputation as a haven for tourists is well deserved; however this southern state has natural and historical riches often overlooked.
Florida’s main tourist attractions are famous for a reason. First and foremost, Disney World Orlando is an enormous fairy tale kingdom of endless attractions and delights for all ages. Sea World Orlando provides a more aquatic display – the seal shows here are that of pop culture legend. Similarly, Discovery Cove provides both relaxing and adventurous experience with snorkelling, diving and any other imaginable ocean past times. On a slightly more explosive note, take to the skies with the home of NASA at the Kennedy space station, time your visit well and you may even see your very own rocket launch.
Beyond Florida’s traditional tourist traps there is a rich tapestry of cultures and natural attractions. Miami is a chilled and relaxed beach city by day, but a heaving Mecca of luxury and excess fuelled nightlife by night. Fort Lauderdale combined up market restaurants and a glorious beach with an infamous party scene, whilst the everglades provide an expansive system of wetlands teaming with natural life. Whilst at Green Motion we always encourage using a car, we will forgive you if you take to the Everglades by hovercraft. For the artistically inclined the Salvador Dalí Museum provides nearly 100 masterpieces, the museum is a lovely change of pace from the lively centres of Miami or Disney World.
Florida is the only state that has 2 rivers both with the same name. There is a Withlacoochee in north central Florida (Madison County) and a Withlacoochee in central Florida. They have nothing in common except the name. Florida is also the largest producer of citrus fruits in the United States and second in the world. Greater Miami is the only metropolitan area in the United States whose borders encompass two national parks. You can hike through pristine Everglades National Park or ride on glass-bottom boats across Biscayne National Park.
With over 1,300 courses, Florida has more golf courses than any other State in USA. Florida is the flattest state in the USA. Florida's mean elevation is just 100 ft (30 meters) Britton Hill is the highest natural point in the state with a summit elevation of just 345 feet (105 meters) above mean sea level. Britton Hill is the lowest state highpoint in the United States. The lowest points of sixteen U.S. states are higher than Britton Hill.
