FUN Vacations somewhere in Florida. Got any suggestions?

Hey. We're going on Vacation this year to Florida.. Usually we go to Daytona and maybe spend a couple of days in Orlando.. I've been every year and thats pretty much all we've done. Anyone have any other suggestions of places to go or things to do? We're taking my 8 year stepson along too, so something that would be fun for a child as well. Thanks guys!! :)

  • DISNEY!!! There are sooooo many fun parks...if you feel they are too old for DisneyWorld there is Magic Kingdom or Islands of Adventure (which has roller coasters but also has stuff for kids like a Dr Suess area I believe). My cousin said that there is also a Nickelodin studio but I dont know about that. You can get a pass to go to all the different parks. And for you and DH theres Universal which is more movie related but its still fun!
    Hope you have a good vaca =)

  • There's a hotel in Orlando where you can swim with the dolphins, and I'm dying to go there! For certain hours of the day, they are in a pool with their trainers and hotel guests can go swim with them like they would any hotel pool.

  • There are beautiful natural places right here in Florida. Look up natural springs in Florida. We have been to one north of Orlando, I think its called Wakkulla in Apopka something like that. It is crystal clear springs coming up from underwater caves. My 12 year ols son snorkels there. also check out Seaworlds new waterpark, Aquatica. Clear waterslide goes through dolphin tank. look for travel saver guide for hotel coupons. We get decent rooms for 50.00 around Orlando.Have fun. We do.

  • I live in Florida.
    Check out this web site www.FLAUSA.com

    We find all kinds of different out of the way places to go. One of my favorite places is St Augustine, I also like a place up around north florida called Ginnie Springs - we go tubing in the spring there.
