September is here and the Summer holidays are over for another year! As I’m getting the children ready for their next year of school adventures I don’t think it is too early to start daydreaming about the next summer holidays, is it??
This year we had a short break within the UK, but I do hope by next summer we are in a position to take the kids a little further afield. They have not been outside the UK yet or ever been on a plane, and I know they would be so excited!
I have a few destinations in mind that I really fancy for a family friendly holiday – Dubai, Malaysia, Paris (for euro disney), California or Florida. Some of my family went to Florida last year, to stay in one of our relatives houses and explore the area, hearing about all the things to do there it definitely is coming up to the top of my list.
At the top of my list of places to visit would definitely be Disney land! I love Disney and it seems like it would be a great place to make some special memories for the kids. Although that would be the obvious place to go, I would want to explore the rest of Florida while I’m there as my family said there are so many other things to see too. I would get myself organised and arrange car hire before I arrive in Florida then we would be free to explore so easily. I had a look and found some great suggestions from lonely planet here.
I definitely fancy the Florida keys, so beautiful!
One of my favourite blogs to read is Enjoy the Small Things by Kelle Hampton, which I have been reading long before I started my own one. She lives in Florida and her pictures always make me want to visit the area – so many beautiful beaches! (If somehow you have managed not to come across this blog, I definitely recommend you go over and check it out, its lovely)
There is another really comprehensive list here again from Lonely Planet, all about attractions which are suitable for kids – in Florida, the gulf coast. My family went to the Everglades while they were over there, and saw some great wildlife.
Another thing I fancy is taking short a cruise from Florida, to go to the Caribbean. My sister said this was brilliant, and I normally trust her recommendations! I have never been on a cruise ship, so that would a first too – it sounds really relaxing and a great way to expand the holiday even further.
I had better get saving up if I want to manage this for next year! Meanwhile, it never hurts to daydream!
