We’ve made it to the dog days of summer and there’s still plenty of time to embrace the season! Central Florida is thriving at this time of year and there is no shortage of exciting summer activities in which to partake. Live the best summer life while the kids are still out of school and the summer breeze continues.
Just read on for some of the most popular ideas to fully embrace the remainder of summer in Central Florida. Take a look!
1) Beach Day
One of the greatest benefits of calling Central Florida home is easy access to the coast. Nothing says summer like a day spent in the surf and sand! Live the true Florida life by planning full-on beach day before summer’s end. This means sun up to sun down, you’re soaking in the rays and enjoying the refreshing salty waters.
To truly make the most out of your beach day, set your alarm for early in the morning so you have plenty of time to gather your gear and plan your day. Make it your goal to not leave the beach until dinner time! This means packing plenty of yummy snacks, entertainment and lathering on the sunscreen. Pack a cooler full of your favorite fruit, soft drinks and tropical treats to keep your energy levels up all day long. Be sure to include bocce ball, volleyball, football, or other beach games into your bag to keep the fun going. Central Florida beaches also provide great waves in which to play so don’t forget the boogie boards!
It’s amazing what memories a simple day on the coast can bring and we can’t recommend a beach day enough. Luckily, most Central Florida beaches allow vehicles to drive on, so you’ll have no problem packing all the essentials for a beach day you won’t soon forget!
2) Amusement Galore
Another huge perk of residing in Central Florida is easy access to amusement parks. Orlando is just a short drive away and there you will find a plethora of amusement parks that entire family will enjoy. Disney World, SeaWorld, Universal Studios, and more, you’ll have a hard time choosing which one!
Although the heat will be in full-force, visiting an amusement park in the summertime is a classic treat that will provide many laughs, thrills, memories and more. Choose rides that offer a refreshing splash or visit one of the adjoining water parks for a cool, refreshing dip.
These world-renowned parks provide fun for all ages, from thrill-seekers to animal-lovers, there’s something here for everyone. You can feel lucky in knowing that people travel from all over the world just attend one of these parks in your own backyard. What an excellent way to celebrate summer in Central Florida!
3) A Local Feast
While some may think of feasting as a fall-time tradition, Central Florida serves a great summertime feast with seafood galore. The warm waters of coastal Florida provide a bounty of delicious fresh seafood that you just can’t beat. Take the opportunity to enjoy a full day of Florida summer seafood feasting!
Florida is known for its commercial fishing heritage and quality seafood products. Many communities throughout the states hold annual festivals to celebrate the incredible seafood that is produced off our coast. Take advantage by venturing throughout the state to attend seafood festivals and truly get a taste of everything Florida has to offer. Summertime festivals prove to be the most bountiful. If eating what seafood is in season is your game, then Florida is perfect place to be! The summer months provide bounties of Mahi, Marlin, Sunfish and Yellow Fin Tuna.
4) Pool Party
If a beach day is out of reach, plan a pool party instead! Each of Platinum’s communities provides a swimming pool for your enjoyment, or maybe you have one in your own backyard! Wherever the fun takes you, plan a day of floating, jumping, swimming and laughing for the entire family to enjoy. Keep the fun going with refreshing popsicles or yummy cocktails for the adults. Throw in some fun floats or pool games for an entertaining twist on the day. When it comes to fun in the sun, Florida has the crown!
