Stay Comfortable and Healthy On Your Orlando Vacation

Central Florida and the Orlando area is, with no doubt, an outdoor-focused vacation destination. The warm year-round weather is perfect for a day at the Disney parks, one of the many nearby beaches, or hours spent shopping from store-to-store at the outlets. Extended periods outdoors, however, means that you have to take extra precautions to protect your health and remain comfortable for the remainder of your vacation.

Sunscreen is a necessity when enjoying outdoor activities in Florida. Prolonged exposure to the sun can be damaging to your skin . Remember to apply sunscreen frequently while visiting our popular outdoor attractions. Sunburn can be a painful experience and could make for an unpleasant vacation. Look for a higher number of SPF with a broad range of benefits.

Prepare a backpack with water and light snacks prior to visiting outdoor attractions. These refreshments will serve as a key source of energy while staying active. You will burn plenty of calories walking for over 8 hours in a single day at the Magical Kingdom or splashing in the surf at Cocoa Beach the whole day. Dehydration due to a lack of fluids is common in the hot summer sun.

Seek shade and shelter to take time and rest while visiting the attractions and nearby beaches. A small break makes all the difference! Wear lightly- colored clothing that is also lightweight and loose so your body has room to breathe. Heavy and dark clothing will make you feel sluggish in the Florida heat.

As we quickly approach the summer season, keep “cool” in mind. It is not fun to feel uncomfortable and out-of-place during your visit. These comfort tips will make your next vacation experience much more enjoyable.

Holiday Magic in Orlando

This year has flown by fast. Christmas is less than 2 months away! Although chances are high that we won’t get snow for the Holidays, we still get very excited for the upcoming Holidays. There is no better destination to spend the season than here in Orlando! Popular area theme parks all have special seasonal events that will compliment your Holiday memories.

Walt Disney World, University Studios Orlando, and SeaWorld decorate in bright colors and lights to gear up for the upcoming Holidays. Santa Claus will be making appearances at each one of the parks, as themed shows and events are also planned. Festive Holiday cheer, great live music from bands and orchestras, and your favorite characters all join in on the celebrations. Caroling is taking place everywhere you go!

Orlando weather adds to the Holiday magic. Daytime temperatures average in the 70s and 80s and cool down nicely through the evenings. Thanksgiving and Christmas take place during our dry season with very little rain and mostly sunny skies. While the rest of your friends are experiencing cold winter temperatures and snow, you can be relaxing by your own private pool or beachside singing Christmas carols with your family.

Beautiful Beaches Just A Short Drive Away

When you vacation in Central Florida, you truly get the best of both worlds. Not only do we have the most popular theme parks, but we are within a short driving distance to beautiful beaches. In the midst of all the Disney excitement and adventure of Universal Studios Orlando, take a break and relax on the wide, sandy shores of our “local” beaches. There is a beach that’s perfect for everybody.

Both Cocoa Beach and Daytona Beach on the east coast are reachable in under an hour’s drive from the Orlando area. Cocoa Beach is popular with surfers and those that prefer a more family-friendly beach. Enjoy a wide strand with plenty of room to enjoy traditional beach sports. Watch cruise ships as they come and go out of Cape Canaveral. Rocket launches are also popular events at the Kennedy Space Center.

Daytona Beach provides a thriving scene for active young adults. Located just north of Cocoa Beach, Daytona is home to the Daytona 500 race of NASCAR. It is perfectly accepted for beachgoers to drive their cars onto the beach and park. Drive out onto the beach strand and set up camp for the day! Motorcycle rallies are held during the months of March and October.

To the west, the Gulf Coast of Florida has much calmer waters and promotes a more laid-back feel. Clearwater Beach can be reached within an hour and a half from the Orlando area. Experience crystal clear ocean water and a wide, white sandy shore that’s perfect for beachside games. Popular ocean sports include paddleboarding and parasailing. While here, make plans to visit the Clearwater Marine Aquarium for fun family-friendly activities while learning about Florida’s ocean animals.

Which beach sounds right to you? On your next vacation to the Orlando area, don’t forget to make time for our beautiful beaches. The salt air and warm sand between your toes nicely compliments the active days spent inside the theme parks.
