Florida is a hot destination on the RV circuit give the amazing year around climate. RV facilities can be hit and miss, so here are some you can count on.
Aside from California and New York, there really isn't a more visited state than Florida. Miles of beaches on this southernmost state, along with attractions such as amusement parks, aquariums and more offer families a wide range of activities. There is so much to see and do in Florida that you could spend an entire season exploring the many sites throughout the state – which is why traveling to Florida in a recreational vehicle, or RV, is such a great idea. You can take your time and stop at the many RV facilities to spend the night along the way.
The most visited area in Florida is arguably Orlando and the surrounding areas such as Kissimmee. This is because Orlando is where the Walt Disney World theme parks and resorts are located, and when people think of a place to go in Florida, they usually think of Disney. There are many other regions to explore in the state, but if you have small children, you will probably be drawn here to the center of Florida (away from the beaches and the beauty of the Everglades and other natural areas). Of course, this area also has a high concentration of RV parks, to fill the needs of families.
If you'd like to stay within the Disney resort, there is one place you should check into. It's known as the Fort Wilderness Resort, and it is located on the Disney resort property. If you choose to stay here, you can expect to find all of the amenities and beauty that Disney has to offer. The sites here are located within 740 acres of woodland forest, and by parking your RV in one of the Disney hookups, you also gain the ability to take part in the many activities and other amenities that are found at Disney resort hotels such as character breakfasts, early admission to the theme parks, and shuttle buses.
Staying within the Orlando area, but not at the Disney resort is also an option. The Tropical Palms Fun Resort, located just bordering on the Walt Disney World Resort, offers families a less expensive option than staying within the resort, but offers many of the amenities as well as the closeness of the Disney resort. The hookups here range from something they call the “Super Site” with electric, water, sewer, cable, paved area and patio, and picnic table – down to the simple water and electric sites. The other amenities in the facilities include pools, cafes, wireless Internet service, a business center and a general store.
Picking Florida for your next family vacation is definitely going to make your entire family happy. From adults to kids, everyone loves the thrill of a warm Florida vacation, with or without a stop at the Disney theme parks.
