Gauteng DestinationsFlorida Hills, West Rand
The gorgeous town of Florida Hills is part of the West Rand in the Greater Johannesburg Metropolitan Municipality. This is, of course, part of the South African province of Gauteng. This means that, although being relatively small, it is a significant member of a very important tourist destination in the multifaceted country of South Africa.
Florida Hills is a residential area that enjoys being within close proximity to a host of conveniences, amenities and world-renowned attractions. Being part of Johannesburg also means being within a relatively short drive from the OR Tambo International Airport, from where the majority of South African tourists begin their African adventures. There are malls, markets and restaurants in abundance from which visitors can choose, making Florida Hills the perfect base for honeymooning couples, groups of friends or families, as well as corporate visitors.
The West Rand itself has an interesting history, having been one of the areas that were colonised by Europeans once gold was discovered here. There are a number of attractions here that are centred on the mining and gold industries, providing historical and cultural insights into the modern-day industries and people of Gauteng. Visitors that are based in Florida Hills have easy access to these and many more attractions.
