Hopefully you caught the best of Newport, Rhode Island last week and Manhattan the week before. This week we’ve reached letter O and Orlando a place many of you might know, but maybe you don’t know about everything it has to offer outside the theme parks. This week I have Heather from I Love Family Travel sharing the top 5 family friendly things to do in Orlando, her home town!

A family vacation to Walt Disney World can be expensive, but over the years we have discovered many options for saving money on food, transportation, and lodging. We have found we can spend less by staying at a property where we have access to the theme parks and enough room for our family of five to spread out and be comfortable. There are many properties like this, but where should you begin? Over the years I have heard about Disney Vacation Club (DVC) and the value it provides to Walt Disney World guests. When looking at affordable DVC options, we came across SellMyTimeshareNow.com, a timeshare resale/rental company, and found they have multiple pages of information on the Disney Vacation Club,… [Read More]
Whether you’re stuck in the gray tundra of the Midwest, buried under a snowstorm in the heartland, or tired of the rain on the west coast, odds are you’re looking to escape to somewhere warm right about now. With year-round beautiful weather, Kissimmee, Florida is the perfect winter escape for families. Just minutes from the theme parks, families can soak up the sunshine on an airboat ride through the Everglades, zipline over alligators at Gatorland, or learn about space travel at the nearby Kennedy Space Center. Whether your family loves theme parks, shopping, or outdoor adventures, Kissimmee will be the perfect winter escape.
Disney World is one of those vacation destinations where it helps to plan ahead and have some travel tips in mind before you arrive. It is hard to explain why, but people are magically drawn to Walt Disney World over and over again. I happen to be one of those people, and we just booked our tickets to head to the Magic Kingdom for the fifth time in 8 years. We spend loads of money to visit multiple theme parks, pull muscles we didn’t know existed, and suffer through endless lines and crowds of people. We do this for our kids, for the memories, and for the love of the mouse.

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Visit Gulf County for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine. Every other year our family heads south to Florida for winter vacation, but somehow we fail to venture out from the land of the overcrowded amusement parks. Just once I would love to escape to the land of warm sandy beaches and beautiful sunsets that I know exists in other parts of the state. After discovering the Gulf County Adventure Guide I am really excited to visit this area of Florida. Gulf County has 43 miles of spectacular coastline along the crystal clear waters of St. Joseph Bay and the emerald green waters of the Gulf of Mexico. From horseback riding… [Read More]
