Florida Family Summer

A Family Road Trip Through the Sunshine State!

A summer road trip is the best time to make memories!  And what better way to make memories than by exploring the Sunshine State. 

Many of us have nostalgic memories of summer road trips with our families where we visited museums, parks, or other cultural and historical sites.  We took pictures at road signs, in front of historical homes, or at cultural sites so that years later, we could relive those happy memories.

The Florida Department of State encourages Floridians and travelers to relive the nostalgic memories of those summer road trips, explore Florida and discover locations throughout the state that are family-friendly and affordable (or free)! 

Make your way through Florida, a local region, or your very own neighborhood, and visit sites that help to tell Florida's story or share Florida's unique history and culture! From libraries to museums to Main Street Communities, wherever you are in Florida, you're never far from family-friendly Florida options!
