Thanks to the range of new and affordable transatlantic flights, USA holidays to destinations such as Florida are booming in popularity. For many tourists, the destination of choice is one of the country’s most iconic cities, Orlando.
However, family friendly Orlando holidays don’t need to be limited by a trip to the theme park. For anyone searching for activities outside of the Walt Disney World Resort here are three excellent attractions that beat all of the clichés.
If you want to capture your children’s imaginations with something not created by Walt Disney, then Salvador Dali is a great choice. The famous surrealist painter created iconic works like The Persistence of Memory or, as many people refer to it, the one with the droopy clocks.
The Salvador Dali Museum in Tampa showcases a number of his most famous works as well as exploring how his paintings have been preserved. There’s an excellent list of family friendly activities and events on offer too, such as Yoga + Dali, story time with families – perfect for keeping young minds engaged and entertained.
There are plenty of eye opening sights and attractions in Florida and leading the way is this museum dating back to the 1933 World’s Fair in Chicago.
A showcase of all things odd and unusual, there is a documentary film that chronicles everything from the weirdest food to a snake crawling through a man’s nose. But it’s not all grotesque sights. Amongst the unusual yet impressive sites on show is a full sized Rolls Royce sculpted entirely from matchsticks.

If there’s one thing that’s bound to capture the imagination of any child, it has to be outer space. Thanks to the range of cheap holidays abroad, most families have some spare spending money available. Where better to use it then the family-friendly Kennedy Space Center?
Here, kids are given access to NASA facilities, not to mention the ability to visit the Rocket Garden. There’s even a five-story IMAX screen to enjoy the experience to outer space. For true space fans there’s even a meal package called "Dine with an Astronaut" or the Space Pass Plus which gives you access to the vehicle assembly building to see where rockets are actually built.
