Families usually travel to Florida to tour the Disney World parks. Although it is a fundamental activity, as children are thrilled with being able to see their cartoon idols up close, it is not the only treasure the state holds.

Therefore, if you plan to stay for several days, want to enrich your trip with more activities or simply do something new, we bring you an ideal guide to make the most of your family stay in Florida.

Marco Island, home of the best beaches

It is no secret that the best beaches in the United States are located in Florida, but among them, Marco Island stands out. 

This tropical paradise, besides offering some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, offers hundreds of activities you can do with your family. For example, you can do water sports and take a guided tour while watching dolphins, manatees, otters, storks, pelicans and many other animals.

On the other hand, if your goal is to rest, this paradisaical island offers the perfect setting for relaxing activities. Like kayaking, making white sand castles or collecting a wide variety of seashells.

Everglades Habitats Tour

Everglades Park is home to a whole exotic jungle, with beautiful flora and fauna that cannot be seen anywhere else in the United States.

If you and your family are already bored with the beaches, an airboat ride in the Everglades is just what you need. It consists of appreciating the wildlife as you take a leisurely ride over the water at a speed of 25 miles.

Whether you love alligators or not, an airboat ride is the best way to see them safely, nothing better to get your adrenaline pumping, right? 

And don’t worry, it’s fun for all ages thanks to its safety system. No matter what time of the year you visit Florida, it’s an activity you can do at any time. 

There are 9 different habitats you can tour, and as if that’s not enough, you can enjoy an afternoon of fishing with your kids.

Feel like an astronaut in Florida

One of the things that excites kids the most is space, the stars and other planets, if you haven’t noticed it yet, just think, how many times have you heard a kid say “I want to be an astronaut”?

And no doubt, once your kids see the launch of one of the SpaceX rockets, they will spend weeks bragging about this adventure to their friends and acquaintances. 

The best part is that the gates of the Kennedy Center are open during the day, so tourists can see the rockets up close and learn all about the space program.

Although the area around the rocket is somewhat crowded, this is because watching the launch up close is memorable, if you are short on time or just don’t like crowds, you can watch the liftoff from the nearby beaches. 

Buy a pizza, grab a blanket, bring your child’s stroller (Check our Florida locations by clicking here) and head to the beach to watch the night launch. Doesn’t that sound like a memorable picnic?

Get to know the fountain of youth as a family

If you think the Fountain of Youth was just a myth, you’re wrong. Once you visit Augustine Park in Florida, you will discover its existence. 

In the 16th century, the explorer Ponce de Leon came to this wonderful green area in search of waters that would restore lost years of life.

So, if you like indigenous culture, hiking with your kids and having contact with green habitats, this is one of the best activities you can do with your family.

In addition, not only can you get younger, the park has multiple activities such as stargazing in its planetarium, visiting the Timucua village, taking a walk in front of the sea and having family snacks under its tall oak trees.
