Summer is right around the corner and vacation is on my mind. The last time we took a vacation it was in Florida. We took the little lady to Disney World for her birthday. I wouldn't exactly call it a "vacation".... tons of people, busy, busy, busy, and exhausting. The next time we head south it will definitely be to Gulf County! Don't get me wrong, I love Disney but I also love being outdoors and enjoying nature. I love smelling the fresh air, going on hikes, camping.
It's amazing how many things there are to do in the Gulf County. You can check out the Gulf County Adventure Guide to plan your perfect Florida vacation! What would I do?
I would start the morning with the dolphins, watching them early in the morning because some families have mentioned being able to see the dolphins playing from their deck. The kids would get such a kick out of that! Then pack our bags and head to the beach. There are so many different things to do on the beach... from going fishing by Indian Pass, horseback riding, snorkeling, paddle boarding and ending the night watching the sunset. That is my idea of a vacation!
Kayaking is one of my favorite things to do in the water and that would be a must on my itinerary. The Dead Lakes are absolutely beautiful surrounded by Cypress and Tupelo trees that stand in the water. It looks like nothing like we have ever seen before.
For the hubby we would either have to go bike riding along the trail or add St. Joseph Peninsula State Park to the itinerary because he loves going for hikes. We could all be on the lookout for the local wild like deer, squirrels, the Great Horn Owl, otters, and bobcats [but only if they are super far away].
A summer outdoors in nature would definitely be my ideal vacation. Exploring with the kids, enjoying the ocean water, and enjoying some water sports and physical activity. I don't think it gets any better than that!
