5 Must-Sees in Florida
Florida is a fantastic destination for families because there is really something for everyone. The Sunshine State has gorgeous beaches for relaxing and suntanning, epic resorts with spas and world-class food, and tons of attractions that kids and adults will all love. Here are 5 picks for great family fun in Florida:
It’s not a full trip to Florida without a visit to The Happiest Place on Earth! With so many theme parks here, there’s something to entertain everyone in the family. The kids will love the Magical Kindgom and Animal Kingdom, while older kids and adults will go crazy for Epcot Future World. Make sure to get your tickets early to beat the prices of the high season, and don’t miss great deals combining part tickets with accommodation. Travelbag is another great resource to help you find an awesome hotel for your stay.
One of the best marine parks in the country, Sea World is a great place to learn about marine life while enjoying the lively environment and tons of entertainment. Thrill seekers can check out a great roller coaster while those looking to explore sea life will love the Manta Aquarium. The park promotes an inspirational message through their “One Ocean” show, which conveys how we all need to help preserve our precious ocean life.
It’s a great combo of thrilling rides and exciting animal adventures, and it’s less crowded than Disney World so you’ll be able to enjoy more rides in a day than the bigger park! There are attractions for all ages from the Sesame Street Safari to Congo River Rapids and roller coasters. The animal adventure tours will take you behind-the-scenes at the exhibits of some of your favorite and most exciting animals.
Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden
Are you a fan of tropical fruit? Check out the Fairchild Tropical Botanical Garden, a unique attraction where popular varieties of mangoes are developed and the Internation Mango Festival is held every year in July. They have seminars on growing and cooking and you can sample the many varieties of mangoes. A very “Florida-appropriate” activity!
Tubing Rainbow River
Two hours north of Tampa, dangle your legs over the side of an inner tube as you glide lazily along the crystal clear water of Rainbow River. What better way to cool off from the sticky heat? Bring your own tube or rent one there. A ticket in ($12) gets you entry to the park, a tube and four hours of floating.
