Spend a Virtual Day at the Beach

VISIT FLORIDA Invites Canadians to the Beach...
from the comfort of home

VISIT FLORIDA is inviting Canadians to the beach...from the comfort of home. Simply go online and check out VISIT FLORIDA’s Florida Beach Finder. Here, you are able to virtually explore the Sunshine State’s much-loved beaches, from the golden sands of the Atlantic coast to the white sands that line the Gulf of Mexico.

In a landmark partnership with Google in 2014, VISIT FLORIDA completed a four-month odyssey to capture stunning images along the State’s 1,300+ kilometers of beaches using Google’s Street View Trekker technology. These 360-degree images, captured one footstep at a time, are integrated into Google Maps, enabling potential visitors from around the globe to experience interactive views of Florida’s world-renowned beaches.

Users simply “tune” their preferences – choosing from adventurous or laid back, family-friendly or romantic, action-packed or secluded and manicured or au naturel. The Florida Beach Finder immediately delivers visual choices that best match desires. With every tweak of the tuner, the options change before your eyes. Once users have picked their favorite beach, they can opt for Street View, which drops them into each location, allowing them to take a look around and to explore.

Enjoy a virtual day at the beach today, and when life returns to normal, we will see you there!


About VISIT FLORIDA
VISIT FLORIDA, the state's official tourism marketing corporation, serves as Florida's official source for travel planning to visitors across the globe. VISIT FLORIDA is not a government agency, but rather a not-for-profit corporation created as a public/private partnership by the Florida Legislature in 1996. Florida’s tourism industry was responsible for welcoming 133.7 million visitors in 2019. Based on the latest economic impact study, Florida visitors contributed $91.3 billion to Florida's economy and supported over 1.5 million Florida jobs in 2018. According to the Office of Economic and Demographic Research, for every $1 the state invests in VISIT FLORIDA, $2.15 in tax revenue is generated. Each year, the Florida Legislature appropriates public funding to be allocated for tourism marketing. VISIT FLORIDA is required to match those public funds dollar-for-dollar, which is done by actively recruiting the state's tourism industry to invest as Partners through cooperative advertising campaigns, promotional programs and many other marketing ventures. Through this public/private partnership, VISIT FLORIDA serves more than 13,000 tourism industry businesses, including major strategic alliance partnerships with Busch Gardens Tampa, Disney Destinations, The Hertz Corporation, Hilton, LEGOLAND Florida Resort, SeaWorld Parks & Resorts Orlando, Simon Shopping Destinations and Universal Orlando Resort. VISIT FLORIDA facilitates tourism industry participation in domestic and international travel trade and consumer shows, as well as media missions to the top global visitor markets. VISIT FLORIDA also works closely with travel agents, tour operators, meeting and event planners, and is responsible for operating Florida's four Official Welcome Centers.
