Ways To Stay Cool In Florida
There are many ways to stay cool when you are on your Florida holiday and I list below some of them.
WetnWild is the oldest of all Orlando water parks, this International Drive attraction has 30 acres of slides and flumes, surf and sun. Here you will find thrill rides, multi-person rides, a lazy river, wave pool, beach volleyball and a kids’ park
Blizzard Beach if you have a trip here it will soon cool you down. This ski resort themed water park features speed slides and parallel flume rides, one of the world’s longest family raft rides, a continuously flowing creek that goes all around the park, and Tikes’ Peak for the little ones.
Disneys other water park is Typhoon Lagoon, this has a giant volcano as its backdrop; Here you will find nine waterslides and streams and one of the world’s largest wave pools. Thrill seekers can slide down the 214-foot enclosed speed slide known as Humunga Kowabunga, while young children can splash safely in Ketchakiddee Creek.
There are plenty of places to cool off at SeaWorld, which is best known for Shamu’s own show. You will definitely get drenched sitting in the “Soak Zone” at a performance of Believe or Shamu Rocks, we have had to buy t-shirts for the girls to keep them warm after the evening performance.
Discovery Cove is just across the road from SeaWorld, and here visitors have the opportunity to swim with the dolphins. Guests can also snorkel through a coral reef or freshwater tropical river, swim with the rays, and lounge at the resort pool.
Aquatica is SeaWorlds recently opened water park located close to Sea World. This has good rides and wave pools and is open until 10 pm in peak summer months.
Gatorlands Gator Gully Splash Park—this combines Old Florida charm with the latest in kiddy pool cool, the newest addition to Gatorland is a kids’ splash zone featuring water sources made to resemble some of the parks most popular residents.
Cypress Gardens is in Winter Haven, and is another Old Florida attraction. They have recently opened the Splash Island water park within the theme park grounds. This has all of the water park favourites: a wave pool, water slides and lazy river
Finally do not forget the Florida Beaches. Cocoa Beach on the Atlantic coast is Orlando’s closest beach; Daytona Beach is about two hours northeast of Orlando. We love the gulf Coast beaches St. Petersburg and Clearwater Beach and these are only about half an hours drive away.
Please remember though no matter how much you cool off the sun is still hot so don’t forget to put on your sunscreen.
