Florida has long attracted Brits looking for a holiday full of sun, fun and impressive natural spectacles.
Now, the readers of a local newspaper have provided holidaymakers with a comprehensive list of the must-see attractions that the US state offers.
Readers of South Florida Sun-Sentinel were asked to first nominate and then vote for the destinations in the state which visitors simply could not afford to miss when holidaying there.
After nearly three months of heated debate, the newspaper finally published the results and revealed what the 'Seven Wonders of Florida' are.
The state's famous Everglades topped the list. This area of dense marsh and wetland is home to many animals and rare plants and birds. It includes Everglades National Park, truly a must for anyone visiting the southern state.
In second place - again showing that the South Florida Sun-Sentinel's readers were particularly proud of Florida's natural wonders - were the state's Keys.
A necklace of islands, the Florida Keys begin just south of Miami and are connected by the Overseas Highway's 43 bridges. Those visiting the islands can expect to enjoy views dominated beautiful lagoons, tropical pines and unspoilt mangroves.
In total, the Keys include around 1,700 islands, meaning that holidaymakers are sure to be able to find their own secluded beach paradise.
Completing the top three attractions in Florida was the oldest continuously occupied European-established city in the US, St Augustine. Now a city of around 12,000 people, St Augustine boasts much to attract visitors from the UK, including several museums and castles and a famed alligator farm.
The other 'Wonders of Florida' included Florida's natural springs, the Kennedy Space Center, Florida's beaches and Walt Disney World.
However, the Lonely Planet recently revealed that visitors to Florida should also make time to check out some of the state's more unusual and 'off the beaten track' attractions.
The guide explained: "While everybody knows the big-name theme parks - they've spawned smaller versions in most of our home countries - the real treasures of Orlando's psyche are the sidekicks: Holy Land is peddling God; Gatorland bills itself as the 'alligator capital of the world'; and Skull Kingdom is endearingly low-tech."
