Memorial Day List

Ok Orlando, Memorial Day is just around the corner and if you haven’t already made plans… it’s probably too late!

Just kidding, but as my family solidify our plans it occurs to us that as Orlandoans, we are really good at HOSTING vacations, but what do WE do when we want to vacation???

So here’s my top 10 list of things to do in central Florida over a long weekend that DOES NOT include acting like a tourist (read: theme parks)

In no particular order:

evergladesnp.jpg1. Go to the beach
2. Canoe at Wekiva
3. Orlando Science Center
4. Tampa Aquarium
5. Camping in Ocala National Park
6. Deep sea fishing from St. Petersburg
7. Wet-N-Wild
8. Everglades National Park
9. Kennedy Space Center
10. Camping/fishing/beaching at Jetty park

I realize that a few are getting close to the touristy line, but not one requires that you set foot anywhere near an orca, mouse or … whatever.

So let’s hear your top 10 list.. or just your top 2 things you like to do with a long weekend or a day off together.

    The Science Center is great! And our favorite camping spot was at Jetty Park (though Ocala wasn’t too bad in the late fall or early spring).

    We used to go to New Smyrna Beach all the time when we first moved down here. Now, not so much. Our idea of a good time is to hang out drinking coffee at Borders or Barnes and Noble, then go see a $1 movie.

    We like the beach and the zoo.. both cheap and fun!
