Florida Golf Vacations   by Brian J Worley

It's no wonder that Florida has become the Golf Capital of the World. With 365 days of sunshine and over 100,000 golf courses available, with more being constructed each year, catering to every level of player.

Whether you bring the family on vacation or visit Florida on business, there's always the time and a great course nearby to enjoy your favourite game.

Florida offers a wide variety of choices when it comes to selecting the perfect golf venue for your golf vacation.

For example, Orlando is not only the home of the world's greatest theme parks, as it is more popularly known, but also of North America's best Florida golf courses and specializes in public and semi private golf courses.  You don't have to be a celebrity, doctor or lawyer to enjoy the beautiful golf courses of Florida. There are courses available for all budgets.

Generally accepted as the home of family attractions, Orlando can also point with pride to its fabulous complex of quality golf courses and a nearly overwhelming selection of hotels and resorts for the travelling golfer.

You may want to relax and watch the PGA play many Golf events year round in Florida. 

Or swing a club on a championship course, such as Arnold Palmers Bay Hill Club and Lodge, which is about being the best of the best and not just when it comes to golf. You can enjoy quaint accommodations in the 65-room lodge, a luxurious spa, salon and fitness centre, a gorgeous pool and tennis courts. And, of course, the kind of golf only available where Arnold lives and plays.
 
Although the Bay Hill Club is a private golf course that are many public courses in the area, such as the Celebration Golf Club  The Celebration Golf Club, designed by the renowned father-son team of Robert Trent Jones, Sr. and Jr. is Ideal for all the family

The Celebration Golf Club is listed as one of PGA Magazine's Junior Friendly courses.

Discover the Florida Frontier for an Authentic Cowboy Experience   by Adam Singleton

When UK holidaymakers think of Florida, they are most likely to picture the extravagant entertainments of Walt Disney World and other Orlando resorts, the sporting traditions of Miami or the lush temperatures of the Florida Keys. Those interested in seeing past the tourism and exploring the authentic culture of Central Florida more deeply can find a wealth of authentic frontier entertainments when heading out of the big cities, with rodeos and Wild West shows performed by genuine Florida cowboys, as well as horse-riding opportunities in operational ranches.

Despite being a long way from the Western frontier, Florida has always held strong associations with the cowboy tradition, and is second only to Texas as one of the biggest cattle ranching states in the USA. Almost one fifth of the entire state of Florida is given over to the cattle ranching business, with eighth-generation cowboys waking at the crack of dawn each day to herd more than two million cattle on 15,000 ranches across the region. It's a long-lived and proud tradition, and one that visitors to Florida can enjoy in all its glory as an authentic alternative to the glitz of Orlando.

Events such as the Silver Spurs rodeo in Kissimmee draw the crowds to see professional cowboys riding bucking broncos and other high-profile competitions throughout the year, as well as hosting festivals devoted to celebrating and maintaining cowboy heritage. Silver Spurs is the country's biggest rodeo event, attracting as many as 18,500 visitors to the arena during the major events in February and June.

Many of these ranches open to visitors are still operational, and are also protected nature reserves, allowing visitors to experience the preservation of historic traditions while testing out their horse-riding skills on huge expanses of land. Ranches such as Forever Florida offer a range of opportunities for visitors across 4,700 acres, while the dedicated Florida Horse Park hosts events on most weekends of the year, including equestrian competitions. Elsewhere, Marion County is home to more horses and ponies than any other county in the United States, and an ideal place for horse lovers to immerse themselves in America's equestrian culture.

When taking flights to Florida this year, consider taking a day or two out of your schedule to explore the Florida that existed before the theme parks took over; an authentic Florida that is still going strong today. With many frontier towns being beautifully preserved, home to museums and galleries commemorating their state's heritage, the spirit of Florida's frontier days still lives on.

Enjoying Charter Fishing in Florida   by Quinn Sharpe

Okay, so you've tried fishing in local streams, rivers and lakes, and you've even tried a few other prime fishing locations like Baja, Alaska and Canada. Now, try something totally different and head south. Fishing in Florida offers anglers of all ages and skill levels something to talk about, whether you're fresh water or salt water fishing.

Florida has a wealth of fishing environments and ecosystems to tackle, from the coastline to the swamps to interior streams and lakes. Florida chartered fishing trips and vacations can be planned for individuals, groups or families, and it all depends on what you want to do. Many fishermen heading south to Florida waters want to try both fresh and salt water fishing, so charter companies in Florida are readily available both online and off to answer questions and provide schedules and pricing guidelines.
 
If you want to split your fishing into both fresh and salt environments, narrow your search to find chartering opportunities that offer both a wide variety of services, at reasonable costs, either on the Internet or through your local travel agency. Better yet, find where you want to fish and then call down to local Chamber of Commerce offices in those areas for a listing of local charter services. Then, always follow up with a call or logon to the BBB's database to make sure the company you want to deal with is on the up and up.

When planning to charter a vacation, determine ahead of time how many people are going to be in your party, what it is you want to fish for, and how many days you're wanting. Doing so will help your potential charter business determine a more specific cost for you. Many Florida charter companies offer a wealth of fishing opportunities, whether you want to fly fish, or shore fly fish, wade fishing as well as drift fishing.

They may offer you opportunities to not only fish from the deck, but to anchor in coves or inlets and take you ashore. That's why it's best to come up with your own special wish list, and then go from there when speaking to any charter company representative for options and prices.

Some charter fishing outfits offer bunking for small parties, while others need to take you and your friends or family back to shore for hotel lodging. Always ask beforehand what services they offer, including food, lodging, as well as half day, full day, and longer chartered opportunities. If possible, check to make sure the boat and captain and crew you're chartered are legally licensed and that the boat is in good working order, complete with adequate numbers of life vests and a dinghy in case of rough weather or accidents. While many experienced adults, anglers or not, scoff at such topics, weather on the Florida coastline often changes quickly, and it's better to be prepared.

Planning a chartered fishing vacation in Florida should be fun, and not filled with hassles and problems. You can judge future service on board by service provided when you make that call, so pay attention to attitude, willingness to help as well as pricing. If you feel uncertain, try making additional calls until you find exactly what you're looking for. Chartering a vessel isn't cheap, so make sure that you get your money's worth.
