Do you have a family vacation on your bucket list but have yet to select a destination? The destinations are nearly endless. Consider a trip to the great state of Florida. Follow these recommendations from the travel professionals to ensure your trip is a huge success for the entire family.  It’s time to start packing!

The first step is to secure your dates and determine your budget. The Gulf Coast, central Florida and the East Coast are all popular destinations. From the stunning blue waters and white sand beaches of the West Coast to the fascinating terrain of the Everglades to the family friendly towns on the Gulf Coast, it’s difficult to make a decision. Consider selecting one coast for half of the trip and Central Florida for the second half.  Depending on the ages of those in your family, from eight to eighty, the amusement parks in Central Florida are a draw for nearly every one.

If you’re beginning your trip on the Gulf Coast, consider booking your accommodations in the family friendly town of St. Petersburg.  Sunset Beach, Pasadena and Treasure Island are all stunning beach havens surrounding St. Petersburg. From Stand Up paddle boarding in the inter-coastal waterway to jet skis and fishing in the ocean, your visit to St. Petersburg won’t disappoint! There is a vibrant downtown scene with ample restaurants and attractions that are an absolute must on your list. With an abundance of hotels and private home rentals, on and off the beach, you’re sure to find accommodations that meet your needs.

After several days of fun in the sun, head west to Orlando. Orlando is the utopia of amusement park towns. Consider taking advantage of the awesome deals offered by Groupon coupons and arrive at the Disney World Park with a gift certificate from the Disney Store in hand. You’ll not be at a loss for fun places to redeem your certificate. From Safaris to cooking classes to lunch with the iconic Disney characters, everyone in the family will have the time of their life. Like St. Petersburg, the options for accommodations in Orlando are plentiful. From hotels to private home rentals, decide if you’d prefer to stay on the property at Disney World or outside of the gates. Take plenty of pictures as you’ll be making memories that will last a lifetime!
