Lets us know which location you will be visiting this summer and why. This might help others on making a decision or looking at Florida for R&R.

Visiting family in JAX this year. Love taking the kids to the JAX zoo and to St. Augustine. Lots to see & do there. May go as far south as Cape Canaveral.

Probably won't be in Florida this summer, BUT over the holidays we will be going to Highlands Co. We also will spend a couple of days in Orlando because we'd like to see Epcot. Then we may take a drive up to Lake Co.

We are staying here in Central Florida and enjoying all the Florida Resident Specials going on. Like the one for Nickelodeon Hotel and of course enjoying our Sea World season pass that we got for $60! Sorry but I have to be loyal to Central Florida's economy!

I want to go to the Keys this summer. Never been!!!


BUT, a friend of mine wants to get a group together to go spend a weekend in Destin.... I might just have to take him up on the offer because the beaches are out of this world! (I reccommend jet ski rentals in the bay as well... crystal clear waters and powder white sand without the muss and fuss of South Beach!)

Thumbs up Florida Family Vacations

Some ideas:

Amelia Island-- in the northeast near Jacksonville-- has lovely beaches, a historic fort complete with actors who play period characters, a quaint town with historic sections, delicious sea-food, and two fine resorts that welcome families.


Space Coast--45 minutes from Orlando is 72 miles of shore known as Florida's Space Coast: the place where the moon launches blasted away from earth, and site of the shuttle launches today. Big draw here is the Kennedy Space Center, and beautiful beaches. Less known are the eco-tours: this area has saltwater estuaries, marshes, and 250 sq. miles of wildlife refuges.

Orlando/Central Florida-- How much more fun can one city take? Here's our picks for fun in Orlando, from character meals to Blizzard Beach waterpark, Universal Studios to Sea-World's elite sister, Discovery Cove (a Caribbean experience in the middle of Florida.)

Sanibel Island
Off the west coast and near the bottom of the Florida peninsula areSanibel Island and Captiva Island: two beautiful islands for nature lovers. No beach pollution; visitors find miles and miles of beaches perfect for kids because of the gentle waves and shallow shoreline. The islands are famous for shelling, too.

Bluewater Bay Resort, Niceville, Florida
Located on the "Emerald Coast" in Northwest Florida, and voted "One of America's Top 10 Family Resorts" by Family Circle. 36 holes of golf, marine, biking and hiking trails, 4 pools, playgrounds.

Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort
This giant 2400-acre resort has a beach side on the Emerald Coast (Gulf of Mexico) and also a bay side, with many activities: kids' sailing, kids' tennis, kayaking, putting course, Jolee Island Nature Park with pirate-ship playground, and a Kidzone with programs for ages 4-6 and 7-12. Watersports include body-surfing and Boogie boards (complimentary). Kids might also enjoy the Junior Golf Academy, with excellent instructors. Best way to get around this huge giant resort is on bikes. The centre of gravity of this huge resort is the picture-perfect Village of Baytowne Wharf.


Wakulla Spring
In a state park in the "Panhandle" near Tallahassee is one of the largest and deepest freshwater springs in the world. Swim or snorkel in the natural pool above the spring; see alligators on a river boat tour; or do a glassbottom boat ride; dine and/or stay at a historic lodge; take nature hikes.
