Trends / Unique Itineraries & Tours

Visit Florida created a new way for travelers to explore the state’s Hispanic heritage and culture. The online Hispanic Heritage Hub details all the Hispanic cultural activities, events and festivals found throughout Florida, as well as things to do and see in traditionally Hispanic destinations, such as St. Augustine, Ybor City and Miami.


In Miami, for example, travelers might want to explore Little Havana and its Cuban influences found throughout its dance, art and music. Additionally, travelers might want to plan a visit around Little Havana’s many festivals, including its annual street festival in March. The hub is also a gateway to sign up for tours and experiences, like the Little Havana Food & Cultural Tour, or one led by a HistoryMiami Museum resident historian.


If visiting St. Augustine, a traveler could use the Hispanic Heritage Hub to explore the history of the oldest continually inhabited European settlement in the United States, and then plan a visit to Castillo de San Marcos, the Spanish Quarter and the Cathedral Basilica. The resource also gives recommendations for Spanish-style and Latin-influenced cuisine available in St. Augustine.


Want to visit Ybor City, northeast of Tampa? The hub will tell you all about its Latin Quarter, as well as Ybor City’s history as the cigar-making capital of the world. Popular stops the hub recommends include the Ybor City Museum, Salsa Caliente Dance Studio and J.C. Newman Cigar Co. Museum.


From these three destinations and beyond, the new Visit Florida Hispanic Heritage Hub makes it easy to explore the Hispanic heritage that abounds in the Sunshine State.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.

Amazon Fire TV Sticks Allow for Streaming Multiple Services

Cable is so expensive, sometimes it is easier to just pay monthly for subscription services like Hulu and Netflix. Some TVs come with those applications already installed, but, if not ,you have to use your laptop and a HDMI cord, which takes a while to set up. Instead, get an Amazon Fire TV Stick.
