For most of us, vacations only come around once a year. So you really want to make sure you choose the right destination and the right activities for you and your family to enjoy. But that can be easier said than done!
Most people choose an overall vacation goal (have fun in a warm climate), then spend days, weeks or even months researching where they can be in a warm, tropical climate but that also offers a ton of fun activities their family might enjoy. Oh, and some place the entire family can agree on!
We think we have a better option. Simply read this entire article. We’ll give you just the right destination, plus share some of the absolute best activities for you to enjoy and we’ll even give you some accommodation options. Sound good?
Okay, here’s a clue about where you’ll be going and what you’ll be doing: you’ll be swimming with dolphins near Orlando!
Most of us know that Orlando, Florida is the theme park capital of the world, boasting parks like Universal, Islands of Adventure, Volcano Bay, Walt Disney World and SeaWorld, to name just a few! But what you may not be aware of is that Orlando offers visitors thrills of all sorts.
For instance, it’s a fantastic shopping destination, home to not one but TWO awesome outlet shopping malls. If you are a foodie, you’ll love that Orlando has hundreds of dining options for budgets of all sizes. You’ll find everything from steakhouses to Italian, Asian to American cuisine.
For those traveling without children, you’ll have access to Orlando’s wonderful nightlife. CityWalk at Universal Orlando Resort is a great spot that has a lot of bars, as does pretty International Drive. Coming with kids? Well then besides the amazing theme parks, you’ll have other options (we’ll cover some specifics in just a bit) of fun activities to do with your kids.
And we’ll bet you didn’t know that Orlando offers some pretty fun and unique nature experiences. In fact, the state of Florida has some of the most incredible wildlife in the entire country. While in Orlando, we definitely recommend you try an air boat ride through some of the local swamps to catch a glimpse of some gators.
Of course, we can’t talk about unique encounters with wildlife without mentioning perhaps the biggest thrill to be had in Orlando, and that is swimming with dolphins!
