Whales, Witches and Wedges

 

Orlando has it all.

Imagine a city that is one big playground, for just about everybody.  During our recent trip we hit the highlights and know that a summer trip would offer an even greater wonderland.

There be whales at Sea World, and that is just the start. Seaworld offers a full day of fun, from being splashed by Shamu to dining amidst the sharks. Yes you can feed some of the sea creatures but also dine in the middle of an amazing aquarium. This park is more than entertainment, Seaworld is taking true steps to make the planet a better place for our deep sea friends and ultimately us.

On to wedges. Lush greens under a blue sky and warm sun, a place of relaxation, fun and friendship. Golfing can be your passion, your pastime or an exciting new sport. Orlando offers dozens of courses for all levels of players. The kids can spend the day at Disneyworld and you can be at Disney golf course, there are at least three.  Orlando Golf is a great source for any golfer. The website gives you a list of the notable courses and which one is right for you. To make it really easy, visit Orlando Tee Times and set up your tee time.

Witches. Take your choice, the evil Disney witches that have delighted us for decades or the new kid on the block, Harry Potter. We had to see it all. Though I’m not much on roller coasters the newest ride at Harry Potter’s Wizarding World, The Forbidden Journey was great. Walking around the Wizarding World truly felt like you were in Hogwarts and Diagon Alley.  A note about Universal Orlando, if you like rides then the Islands of Adventure is for you, but if you are movie fans and looking for something less heart pounding but great fun Universal Studios is the ticket. The City Walk has lots of restaurants and a huge cineplex.

 

 

 

Disneyworld is an enchanting visit for everyone, but the younger members of the family definitely appreciate the Disney flair the most. Although our day at the Animal Kingdom melted my heart. The terrific environment provided for the wild beasts who would otherwise suffer is heartwarming. The family of gorillas is truly a site to behold.

The Fountain of Youth

No its not free botox but it is an early claim for keeping young, the fountain of youth. Hundreds of years ago explorer Ponce De Leon ”discovered’ the Fountain of Youth in Florida. While proof of its powers are dubious, the park around it has great history and is even open for weddings.

Florida is known for its great beaches, from Miami to Cocoa Beach and more. Of course everyone knows about Orlando, Disneyworld and Universal Studios.

 

If you want to see alligators, try an Alligator Safari or visit Everglades National Park for gators and more.

Check out Tampa for golf, zoos and more theme parks.

Staycations

This is a great time of year to visit wineries check Virginia Wine for info on fairs and festivals.

For a kid, pet and grown-up friendly afternoon try the 17th Street Corridor Festival on Saturday.

Dwelt a miner forty niner…

Can you remember where that line is from? I’ll make it easy, Clementine, one of those songs you sang around the campfire or on a roadtrip. But Clementine is not the focus of this week’s blog, but her location is, California.

The diversity of this state can be related to its size. For us east coast denizens, picture driving from the northern tip of New Jersey to halfway down the North Carolina coast and that is the length of California.
Its climate and culture range from the rustic and cool north to the waves and star-studded south.

If you are planning a trip out west The Avenue of The Giants is a site not to be missed. Of course any wine lover must take in the complexity of the Sonoma Valley and Napa Valley.

Young or old Disney is an icon that holds a place in everyone’s heart. Take a day to visit Disneyland.

I could spend days writing about all the places to visit in California. Let’s just say it’s worth the trip and more, whether you want to try and rub elbows with a star in Hollywood, take a look into the Gold Rush days, marvel at Death Valley or ride the waves the one thing you can be sure of, you won’t be bored.

On the Local Scene

August is County Fair Month in Virginia- Great for old-fashioned fun

Fill your need for speed at Virginia’s Racetracks (If you’d like a special race weekend planned including driving a race car, contact us for details)

Touchdown! Football season will be upon us soon, check out the Virginia college teams

Whatever your interest from wine to windmills, and flowers to football, we hope you will explore and enjoy. If Unique Travel Events can make it easier for you to dance to your special tune we’d love the opportunity to create your special Getaway.
