Top 5 Things for Families to do in Florida

Being home to one of the world’s largest amusement parks, boasting fantastic year-round weather, and a nearly endless list of beautiful places to see and explore, Florida is naturally a destination where families from all over the world come to enjoy. If you and your little ones are planning a Florida holiday soon, be sure not to miss out on the following great things to do.

1. Explore Walt Disney World

What is a visit to Florida without at least one day spent wandering this incredibly impressive amusement park? You and the kids can make memories discovering over 40 attractions, dozens of thrilling rides, and that magical atmosphere that Disney has become so well known for. After that, consider heading to Universal Studios for even more entertaining fun!

2. Cool Off at a Waterpark

Although Florida’s climate for the most part is very welcoming, it can also be a bit much at times. For a nice, fun, and refreshing break from all that heat consider heading to one of the many waterparks scattered throughout Florida. Some of the most popular ones include Calypso Bay Waterpark, Cape Coral Sunsplash Waterpark, and the 30-acre Adventure Island. 

3. Visit the Kennedy Space Center

If your kids are at all into space and the exciting life of astronauts, the Kennedy Space Center is an absolute must! Not only does it provide its guests with a glimpse into what the first landing on the moon was like and the chance to experience up close tours to witness the historical Launch Pad 39, you and the kids will be able to walk away with a plethora of new facts and newfound passion for the world of space. 

4. Discover State Parks & Beaches

Another great way for the kids to run around and let out some of that bundled up energy of theirs is to spend a day or two discovering the many beautiful Floridian state parks and beaches. Though some beaches aren’t aimed toward families, ones like Pensacola Beach, Destin, and Fort Walton Beach have proved perfect spots for a nice family beach day. State parks you won’t want to miss include Cayo Costa, Weeki Wachee Springs, and Rainbow Springs

5. Meet Some Sharks at Mote Marine Laboratory

Mote Marine Laboratory serves as a center for not only shark studies but also manatees, sea turtles, and dolphins where their research has helped bring about more awareness of these beautiful sea creatures. You and the kids will get the chance to get an up close experience in its working aquarium that features a 135,000-gallon shark habitat and provides a home to over 100 species of marine life!
