Florida: host to the Super Bowl and great family holidays

Florida hosts Super Bowl Sunday on 7 February 2021. This year’s US watch-parties will definitely be smaller, or even virtual. Go Team Zoom!

1/10  Amelia Island, North East Florida

Amelia was recently voted Best US Island in Condé Nast’s Traveller’s Choice awards. If it doesn’t sound familiar, that’s probably because it’s closer to Savannah than Orlando, and easy to miss. Put that right and you’ll find over 13 miles of flawless sands, one of the state’s biggest historic districts at Fernandina Beach, some of Florida’s finest golf courses and everything from pirates to fabulous state parks keeping things lively for kids.
