One of Florida’s best and most spectacular attractions occurs twice per day, consistently draws “oohs” and “ahs” from tourists, and is absolutely free: Sunrises and sunsets over the ocean.
Unlike anywhere else in the US, Florida is surrounded on three of its four sides by oceans. And in the southern part of the state, places like Marathon, Key West, Islamorada are surrounded on all side by water. Talk about an embarrassment of natural riches!
Charter Bus Rental in Fort Lauderdale — Stunning Shows, Twice Daily
While many Florida residents take our stunning sunrises and sunsets for granted, it’s one of the best things about visiting the state for the millions of people who travel here all year round.
In Atlantic side cities like Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Boca Raton, Delray Beach, and Port St. Lucie, many tourists will make a point of getting up very early in the morning so that they can see the first glimmer of light as the sun makes its way over the horizon in the east.
(In South Beach, many revelers get to see the same spectacular light show if they stay up late enough).
Charter Bus Rental in Fort Lauderdale — The Business of Nature
On the Gulf side, many resorts, restaurants, and bars have made big business out of the spectacular sunsets over the Gulf of Mexico. Happy hours, “sunset” parties and other events have created a highly profitable industry out of something that happens naturally at the end of every day.
While people who live in Florida often take our spectacular sunrises and sunsets for granted, it’s a huge draw for many tourists. Perhaps Florida residents can learn something from our visitors for a change.
No matter where you are in Florida, you are never more than an hour or two from an ocean, where you can enjoy the splendors of nature every morning and every evening.
