If you have decided that you want to explore the USA's sunniest state, Florida, you can now search for car hire rates quickly and hassle-free by using National.
Florida, with around 2,800 hours of sunshine per year, and the longest coastline of any of the American States, has enormous appeal. Go in search of the most beautiful beaches with white sands and crystal-clear turquoise water - from West Palm Beach to Florida Keys North. Work on your tan, and then drive along the causeway in your open-top Mustang or in air conditioned comfort in your Cadillac, both available to hire from National, to South Beach, Miami, the best place of all to show it off. Spend more time on the beach there or explore the art deco clubs, restaurants and shops of Ocean Drive.
The wide-open spaces and excellent road infrastructure makes car travel a pleasure in America. Follow the highways along iconic routes, like Route 66, arguably the most famous road in the world. Starting at Chicago and running through the varied terrain of the western states to Los Angeles, the road stretches through the Painted Desert, close to the Grand Canyon with its meteor crater.
You should also see the State Parks, with their unique vegetation and animal life. Go for a dive in the limpid waters of Manatee Springs State Park and meet up with the other snorkelers, cave-divers and swimmers searching for the charismatic manatees (sea cows), thought to have been mistaken for mermaids by sailors in days of old.
Head south and west if you want to visit the Everglades National Park and maybe take an airboat ride to see the alligators, or if you are feeling romantic, go in search of some of the most spectacular sunsets. Tampa, on the coast of the Gulf of Mexico, will often offer up this site.
Finally, do not forget the Florida Keys. Take the unique drive to Key Largo, an hour south of Miami, one of the diving and snorkelling capitals of the world.
Use National today and search for car hire rates simply and without fuss. As one of America's biggest car hire companies, hire is available in over 315 locations across the country, including Miami Airport.
