With summer just around the corner, Florida will soon welcome droves of tourists with their families in tow who are in for the vacation of a lifetime. While it has loads of offerings and attractions for the older crowd, Florida specializes in attractions that are designed to get children a vacation that they will never forget.
The Walt Disney World alone in Lake Buena Vista, Florida is more than enough to make one’s dream come true. The world’s largest and most-visited entertainment resort, Disney World is home to four theme parks, namely Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom. You can only imagine the enjoyment your children—and even yourself—will have experiencing all the Disney Magic that we have grown up with. A family vacation in Florida will never be complete without dropping by this magical place.
Speaking of Disney, the magic in Florida doesn’t stop at Disney World. At least three ships of the Disney Cruise Line consider Florida their homeport, and travel destinations that include Europe, the Panama Canal, the Caribbean, Alaska and the Pacific Coast, the Bahamas, and other Transatlantic areas. Take your family on a Disney Cruise, and you would all see the world in the most fun-filled way imaginable.
When vacationing with your kids in Florida, one attraction that you should not miss would be the Miami Children’s Museum. Few places in the world can satisfy your child’s curiosity better, as the museum has a wide range of interactive learning exhibits that will certainly get your children hooked. Other museums that will offer an enjoyable experience for you and your kids are the Miami Science Museum, the Ripley’s Believe It Or Not museum in Orlando and of course, the Imaginarium Hands-On Museum, where your family can enjoy features such as the Hurricane Experience, 3D movies, Sea to See Touch tanks and Be The Dinosaur.
If you and your kids have a thing for the scary and paranormal, go on a guided Ghost Tour of St. Augustine in Florida. Whether you choose a riding tour or a walking tour, you are guaranteed to get goose bumps while going through the place.
Of course, what would a Florida family vacation be without spending some time in the water and soaking up the sun? Apart from its many beautiful beaches, Florida is also home to Adventure Island, a water theme park located in Tampa, Florida. With features such as slides, waterfalls, and waves, you might think that this water park is only for the enjoyment of children. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Anyone who visits the place is bound to enjoy Adventure Island and the kind of water fun that it has to offer.
All these and many more great attractions definitely make Florida the perfect family travel destination!
