Americans put much thought and planning into where we go on vacation and what we choose to do. A study conducted by One Poll found that 76% of people surveyed said that they use review websites when planning a vacation. Trip Advisor is one such review website. And each year, Trip Advisor puts together a list of the top overall experiences in the United States based on reviews by its users. The list for 2021 includes a variety of indoor and outdoor activities from places all over the United States.
Where Florida Placed on the List:
Florida did well in this list of experiences. It earned three spots in the top twenty five, all of which were outdoor activities. Florida even nabbed the top spot with the clear kayak tour of Shell Preserve by Get Up and Go Kayaking. The experience received over 1900 five-star reviews. Reviewers noted that the clear boat allows the user to see birds, dolphins, and rays.
Florida experiences also claimed the third and eighth highest spots. A swim with the manatees experience out of Crystal River by Exploria received over 1,000 five-star reviews and came in third place.
