Although there is a negative perception regarding the timeshare industry as well as there are several owners who are trying to get out of their timeshare contracts every year, Florida still houses several timeshare resorts and considered one of the main contributors in its tourism industry. Decades ago, the Florida government decided to capitalize on their lovely location and climate conditions, and provided several business incentives for the tourism industry to develop.
Meanwhile, the timeshare concept originated in the early 60's and although many people who are visiting the sunshine state desired a vacation property, there are only a few who could afford it. The 60's brought in the decade of peace and love and the popularity of owning your hotel room as opposed to renting it as a one off.
By the 70's, some of the larger management companies evolved such as RCI and Consolidated TS Inc. and Florida was a natural fit for those companies due to its popularity, climate, attractions and ease of access. Since then, there are several smaller industries which have grown around the larger tourism industry, to service and support it. These include the hotel industry, the entertainment industry, the nightlife, the various sports facilities, and so on. All these combine to create an environment which is very attractive to anyone traveling on vacation inside the state.
Due to all the reasons cited above, Florida is one of the most reputed vacation destinations in the US and will continue to be so for a long time. Furthermore, the flexible nature of Florida timeshares means that the timeshare packages can be customized to suit any kind of vacationer.
