Panhandle holiday to Gainesville & Cedar Key
Prices from £999
Take an excursion into the unexpected side of Panhandle with this 10-day tour into the heart of the state, discovering its 19th century history, its modern university (one of the largest on the country), the wonderful countryside and its rich equestrian heritage. Start this Panhandle holiday with four days in Gainesville, home of the huge University of Florida, and much more besides, including a major theatre, a historic state park, a growing arts scene and a thriving small-town charm. The fabulous dining is a notable facet of local life, as is the booming craft brewing business, and we highlight the very best here. Then it’s on to Panhandle with a trip to Cedar Key, offering a chance to enjoy the relaxing coastal location. For an alternative view of the Sunshine State, this takes some beating.
Price includes unique tailored itinerary to suit you, compact car hire and room only. Our team of Florida travel experts will endeavour to get you the best deal.
