Saying that I’ve been to Miami many times and with Orlando just round the corner there is plenty to do, water parks, all you can eat buffets that are huge, the best crazy golf courses EVER! and great beaches with skateparks and gyms. Just stay on the beachfront and don’t wander into the backstreets looking like a tourist
Not that it will probably make much difference to most people, but some of these flights are with Delta, not VA.

Only the 10:10am from LHR and the 18:25 from MIA are the VA flights, all other times will be Delta. VA only have one flight per day each way.

I was in Miami a few weeks ago. Like the rest of the US, it has got very expensive there. South beach was not, in our opinion, that good. Very expensive bars & restaurants. The beaches were ok but all very much the same. We wandered about ok off the beaten track with no trouble or danger but we won't be going back to MIA any time soon as it was a fairly boring place. We did go further afield which was much more interesting. Generally though, the Yanks are more than ever obsessed with money - everybody, EVERYBODY expects there share of the money - they will expect every possible cent out of you for the slightest thing. It's never been so bad from our experience - we travel usually twice a year there and after the recent MIA trip have decided we're going to give the US a miss for the foreseeable future.

The cost of living there has never been so high, so I guess they're all struggling to survive with their fairly low wages - minimum wage is around $8-$10 (£6.50 - £8) yet an equivalent weekly shop here of £60 will be around £150 there, maybe more! They don't have the added money benefits we have here like child benefit or tax credits so their wage is ALL they get.

Pack of 4 muffins here = £1 or so, there £3+.
4 pints of milk here = £1 or so, there £2.50.
6 apples here = £1.50, there £4+.
Bread here = £1 a loaf, there £2+ and so on.

We spoke to quite a few people there about their way of life - all very depressing with many people barely keeping their heads above water. And most people are lucky to get 10 days annual leave, and even then many don't even take the 10 days as they're too scared to due to the work culture over there - it's frowned upon to be away from work. A very hard life for most people. The 'American Dream' is a nightmare!

Ok if you like to lounge around most of the time but If you're looking to stay in one of the hotels on the beach there (the Atlantic beach ones which are the popular, but expensive choice) then bear in mind the pool and garden areas will be in the shade from early afternoon as they are east facing. We cycled past all of the hotels along the Atlantic promenade for about 6 miles and it was so strange seeing the poolsides deserted with just countless empty sunbeds!

As for mini-golf, there is mini-golf all over Florida, but talking specifically about Kissimmee (Orlando) a family of 4 will cost about $50 (£40) for maybe 30 minutes 'fun' if you're lucky. Adults are usually about $15 (£12) each with maybe a coupon of $1 off per person in a local booklet. In our opinion quite fun, but the cost is ridiculously high for what you get.

The US is not the great place it used to be. Sad.

Miami is great for the beaches, but international Drive in Orlando has the best Crazy golf courses ( Congo river golf, pirates cove golf, gator golf, also the big parks like Disney and universal studios have great courses, but the rides are better!)
There’s also a guy and girl on YouTube visiting the craziest crazy golf courses in America which I find fun to watch for some weird reason. You will have a great time!
The YouTube guy is called Brooks Holt for the crazy golf videos

Cheers, we are doing Orlando first so will fit in a few of the courses
Thanks OP. Taking the family to see grandparents for February half-term. See y'all on the plane!
Virgin are a great airline (IMO), would snap this up in a heartbeat if it wasn't for the fact of dam friends already booking my entire holiday year up haha

Just around the corner, just like Blackpool is just around the corner from London Better to base in Orlando and visit the many (much nicer beaches) within an hour or two's driving. Voted hot as it's a good price, not quite as good as the prices from the big sale.

The exchange rate isn't that great at the moment. Probably the reason why flights are so cheap! If it was $2 to a pound, I bet flights would be double or triple this!

Cool place but accommodation is a fortune. We found the driving there (unlike Orlando) to be terrible and scary. Don't think we would hire a car if we went again.
Any Scottish airports?

You're talking over 200 miles away "round the corner" there... London to Manchester is a shorter distance lol Don't forget the toll roads either!

We did a fly drive down from Orlando to Miami took a cruise from Miami around the islands then back up to Orlando.
If you want to stay in the same resort and spend nothing.........go to Benidorm.
Holidays are about seeing different things, if you’re scared of a little drive in the sunshine up the coast whilst on holiday then I don’t know what to say.
When in Thailand I saw lots of Thailand not just one place, sometimes bus journeys of 14 hours, or boats to different islands, motorbike journeys on rough tracks and small planes.
It’s great to travel around in other places so you can see everything on offer.

Driving in the US is FAR easier than here in the UK, insofar as there are very few speed or traffic cameras (there are some in Miami/southern Florida area that we noticed at quite a lot of junctions.) and the roads (outside of major cities) are clear of heavy traffic, good condition generally and big. We drove around Miami for about 5 days and it was a cinch (for me anyway). Yes traffic can get busy but still easier than cities (end even some owns) in the UK.

Big problem with Miami (especially around SoBe) is parking - expect to pay between $25-$50 per day. Almost every single hotel in the SoBe area charges for parking - whether they have it on site (rare) or off-site (most are), it is expensive and usually valet parking, so the drivers expect their cut (tip) on top.

We were considering driving up to Kissimmee when we were in Miami (which is where all the theme parks and I drive are - Orlando is a city with no theme parks something like 20 miles away) and it was something like 260 miles away with a drive time of around 3.5 hours. That is fairly accurate as once outside of Miami there's not that much traffic.

Speed limits are similar to here, but actually the reality of driving is also like here - expect to be doing 80mph-90mph on their major roads and motorways - even on 55 limits expect to do 70-75mph. The last 5 times I've been on driving holidays to the US (Florida, Georgia/Alabama/Tennessee/South Carolina, Virginia, California and Nevada) I've driven from 1,800 to over 3,000 miles on each trip, so have a fair bit of experience. Just stay alert, follow signs and satnav (I thoroughly recommend Waze) and chill as it is far more relaxing driving there than here!

This was a tad scaremongering. I have been to Florida countless times, and I mean I have driven from Tampa, to Key West, back through Miami, Fort Lauderdale and inner Miami, Sarasota, Orlando. I loathe Miami beach and all that area so not surprised you based your entire thought of Florida into one place, a mistake many people make. Florida is such a family place well away from the theme parks. I have gone 2 blocks from Miami beach and found crack homes.
As for you comments on 10 day annual leave and work culture, yes you are right that is despicable law.

No mistake from me - I have been to Florida 13 times myself - having gone to Key West, Kissimmee (9 times), Naples, Cape Coral (2 times) Miami, Tampa, Daytona, Kennedy, Fort Lauderdale, Palm Beach and some other places I've forgotten about. The simple truth about Florida is that it all looks the same, no matter where you go. Kissimmee is fun of course, as are other places (it's not all boring) but Miami was nothing to write home about.

All in all we've been to the US 20+ times. We actually travel as staff with VA. There are many much better places to go in the US - I would always recommend California to anybody wanting to go the US as it's such a diverse state with ever changing scenery, deserts to Mountains, lush green tropical type places to snow in places. Kissimmee (and other parts of Florida) is great for families I agree, but other places not so much, especially Miami - I would not recommend anybody take their kids there are it's simply too boring - nice beaches yes but other than that? Nah.

Don't get me wrong, I drove through some dodgy looking places in Miami - especially when we went to buy some bikes off of Craig's list. Even cycling we went through some iffy looking areas but maybe we just got lucky.
Have to agree with the other poster. It is very expensive now in the US. Went to LV and NY in August. Food was v expensive as were many other things. 10 minute ride on a gondola in the Venetian was around $100. Pizza $25. Toothpaste $3+. Walgreens is the only supermarket in Manhattan and their prices are higher than average

NY has always been expensive but remembering the good ol days of $2 for £1 But the exchange rate is utterly shocking, if your not using Starling/Monzo then God help you.

Found Cali a lot more expensive than Florida, the beaches were not as good, not to say Floridas are world beaters but Sarasota's was amazing. The latin-esque food is close to non in Florida from Cuban to caribbean. As for general life, Cali does beat it. You have to fight more with the 8 hour time diff. I always try and stay away from the parks in Florida and stay at airbnbs for real experience. The borough run waterparks in each area are incredibly value and alike nothing that a council would ever provide here.

Driving in the USA outside of cities is a doddle, completely agree. Stick on cruise control, sit back and relax! You might even have to turn the steering wheel once every 100 miles lol They may not have speed cameras like we do here, but they have plenty of highway patrol and state troopers hiding all over the place with speed guns, so to be careful. I once got a ticket doing around 83mph at 2am on a deserted highway, so be warned!

Point taken, but if there is someone out there who doesn’t realise America is a much bigger place than the U.K then they don’t deserve to play on the water slides
Is there any indication as to when this offer will end?
