Florida has a plethora of locations from coast to coast that make excellent RV vacations.

For travelers looking to purchase their first recreational vehicle or update what they already have to visit these locations, RV Connections is your go to RV dealer in Panama City.

With plenty of new and used vehicles available from over 20 brands, you’ll “connect” to the perfect ride from the Tiffin Allegro Bus to a Class C Forest River Forester.

Once you’re ready to go, choosing a Florida vacation spot will be next on the list. Pick a location close to home or venture out on the open road to some of Florida’s most well-known areas for fun-in-the-sun.

East Coast

Florida’s east coast will keep you busy from St. Augustine – the oldest city in the US – to the Keys. Along the way, there’s Daytona Beach and its famous Boardwalk, the Kennedy Space Center in Melbourne, Fort Lauderdale’s beautiful beaches and beautiful people, and Miami’s South Beach area and nightlife. The Art Deco area, Little Havana’s culinary delights, and family attractions such as the Miami Zoo make this a “go to” Florida destination.

Key West

Heading out of Miami, keep going across the bridge all the way to Key West. Stop at cities that make up the keys such as Islamorada, Key Largo and Marathon to enjoy the cool waters for scuba diving, snorkeling and fishing. Visit Fort Zachary Taylor Historic State Park dating to the Civil War and take a boat ride to the Dry Tortugas.

West Coast

The Tampa Bay area has so many areas to visit. The St.Petersburg and Clearwater area has miles of golden beaches and the best seafood restaurants. Fort DeSoto has an ancient fort, Tarpon Springs has the sponge docks, Silver Springs for snorkeling, Tampa features Busch Gardens and Lowry Park Zoo, and Sarasota has pristine beaches and the Ringling Museum. These are just a few of the places you won’t want to miss.

Central

The theme parks: Disney, Universal, SeaWorld, Legoland, Islands of Adventure, and Pleasure Island, to name a few, for family fun.

Plan a visit to RV Connections and let the friendly staff at this family owned RV dealership get you going in the right direction.
