I have been to many places in my life, but none will ever compare to my home, Florida. While I enjoy traveling to many difference places, I live in one of the most favorable vacation spots in the United States. On the coast of Daytona Beach, there are beautiful beaches to relax, surf, or play in the sand. There are also exciting inland activates to peruse. For race fans there is the Daytona 500 track, which gives tours and also provides the opportunity to drive a race car around the track! But racing isn’t all Daytona is good for! Nearby there is a zip lining course for those seeking a little more adventure then sitting at the beach. Then after wards you might want a bite to eat! I would highly recommend the Inlet Harbor Marina! Sitting on the edge of a river you have the option to pull up by car or by boat! You can enjoy the food to the tune of a live band and beautiful river scenery.
Traveling further inland to Orlando you will find the more famous family activates. Universal Studios has the new addition of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, a must for Potter fans visiting! Other amusement parks that are hot spots in Florida include Disney World, Sea World, Wet n’ Wild, and Blizzard Beach.
Getting away from the crowed Orlando you can travel over to St. Augustine for some educational relief! The Castillo de San Marcos is the oldest masonry fort in the United States. I personally visited the fort on a school field trip. You are given a very educational tour with historical stories of the people once living there. Aside from the fort there are many other entertaining tours such as the Ghost Tours.
Florida is beautiful, educational, and entertaining all in one. It’s no wonder why it’s a popular vacation spot. I consider myself very lucky to be raised in such a unique peninsula. While traveling to other places is exciting and adventurous, there’s no place like home when home is Florida.
