So here are my son’s top Five Summer Getaways Every Kid Should Experience:
Theme Parks- This was actually the first thing my son mentioned. We just so happen to live about an hour away from Busch Gardens - Tampa FL, so last year we took advantage of a FREE Preschool program. Both my son and daughter were able to go into the park for FREE. I ended up purchasing a full pass that gave me unlimited parking and discounts on food and purchases. Plus, we bought drinks that gave us refills for .99 cents that we could reuse each time we went to the park. We ended up going to Busch Gardens over 10 times which included going with family and with members of a mom’s group.
Of course, I can’t forget to mention Disney as another great Theme Park destination. We live about 2 to 2 1/2 hours from there and we can either drive up for the day or stay over night. And since Orlando FL has so many great restaurants and over night stay accommodations, Disney is a great summer getaway.
Children’s Museums- We live near many great Children’s museums. The ones in our area include, Great Explorations – St. Petersburg FL, G-Wiz- Sarasota FL, and MOSI (Museum of Science and Industry) -Tampa, Florida. These are all wonderful locations because they offer things to keep your children entertained, and most are located near fast food restaurants or local sandwich shops so you can leave the museum for lunch, and then come back if you like.
The Beach- FREE sand, water, and sun, what more can you as for. We live about 15 minutes from the beach, so during the summer we go there A LOT. One of the beaches we frequent has a playground, restaurant, and picnic tables so we can make an entire day of it. The kids love making sandcastles, they look at water creatures and sea shells, and enjoy wading in the water. However, if you decide to make the beach one of your summer getaways, remember to bring plenty of snacks, water, and sunscreen.
Do you have any great Summer Getaways that your family likes? I would love to hear about them!
