Family Staycation: Central Florida without the Theme Parks

Family Staycation: Central Florida without the Theme Parks Education Possible

Is your family thinking of taking a vacation this year? What about planning a staycation instead?

Thousands of families come to Central Florida with one thing on their minds – theme parks! However, for us locals, there are times when we want to be anywhere but the theme parks. Luckily, there is so much more to see and do in the area aside from Sea World, Universal, and Walt Disney World.

We love learning while on vacation and a staycation is no different!  

We live in an area that boasts beautiful weather year round and weekends full of fun festivals and activities. There is plenty to keep all family members active, excited, and engaged, right here in the Orlando area.

I love homeschooling! Learning is a way of life for our family. Most days you will find us exploring our Central Florida community, having fun while learning. I am constantly looking for new and interactive ways to engage my older children.

  1. Thanks for sharing! I have saved this to my pintrest board as we will be traveling to FL later this year. We will be in the Daytona Beach area-do you have any budget friendly lists available for that area by chance?

    Thanks for sharing!! I appreciate the lists and hope to experience some of these items while on vacation.
