Vacation road trips Florida

Soon enough it is going to be spring break and then summer. with those two coming up around the corner it is time to start planning your Florida vacation. Having lived in Florida now for 10 years I got to experience quite a bit of this beautiful state and I want to share with you what I think is some of the great places to go on vacation with your family.

  • Orlando – From Magic Kingdom, Universal Studios to Discovery Cove are one of my favorite places to visit in Florida. These places are not only kid-friendly but even as an adult I still enjoy going. Magic Kingdom is my favorite place as I feel it is magical. I hope it is magical for you too.
  • Sanibel Island– Having been to Sanibel numerous times I have to tell you it is gorgeous. Since the roads are narrow you would probably see Sanibel a lot more if you rode a bike. Take a long bike ride and scour the beautiful nature all around you. there is parks, a walking trail, botanical garden, and a flatwood preserve to bird watch. You may even see a bald eagle and some alligators!
  • Cape Coral – Cape Coral is around the corner from where I live and it is a great place when you have children. Mike Greenwell’s Family Fun Park is great for all ages. You can play miniature golf, swing in the batting cages, race on the go-karts, or just chill out at the sports bar. In addition, in Cape Coral, there is Sun Splash Family Waterpark where you can be lazy on the lazy river or go fast down the water slides. It is a fun day for all.
  • Fort Myers Beach- Known for its sugar-sand and beautiful blue waters, Fort Myers Beach is one place to hit if you are in this area. Feeling adventurous? Rent a jet ski and head out into the beautiful waters. Play minitaure golf at the smugglers cove to try and get a hole in one. If you are wanting to relax and watch a movie on the beach check out the beach theater.

No matter where you decide to go in Florida on your vacation always make sure you have a reliable vehicle when traveling. In my home town of Fort Myers Galeana Kia has great reputable vehicles equipped for travelers.

The Rewards Of Responsible Driving

Cars are a convenient mode of transport, and one of the easiest ways to get from point A to point B. They are so convenient, that more businesses are offering company cars as an incentive to get good workers to join their team. But whether you drive a company car, or you have your own vehicle, you need to remember one thing; a car is also a piece of heavy machinery that could potentially kill someone. Every time you pull out of your driveway, you are responsible for your own, and other people’s lives. Being a responsible driver is an obligation, but it does come with its own rewards. Read more
