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.
