more than Disney World
Johnny Mack, Northport New
you've ever visited Florida, you've probably gone to Disney World
in Orlando. While Disney World is well worth visiting, there is
a whole world outside it that is even more worthy of a visit. I
have been visiting Florida for the last 15 years and done all the
usual vacation stuff: theme parks, beaches, pools and plenty of
eating out. But about 3 years ago I decided it was time to try something
a little different.
It started when I visited Sebastian,
a city on the east coast of Florida, located about halfway between
West Palm Beach and Cape Canaveral. And what a vacation that
was! I canoed with a group down the Loxahattchee River which was
great. We saw alligators on the banks of the river. We got so close
to the alligator that it jumped off the bank and made a huge splash
in the water. It was definitely scarier than any ride at Disney
World. There was even a little bit of white water by a small dam
built on the river, which we had to canoe through. But the highlight
of the vacation was when I went Tandem Skydiving. Now that was an
experience I will never forget. Looking north, I could see Kennedy
Space Center from 14,000 feet. It was such an incredible rush. It
couldn't believe that I'd been missing this part of Florida for
all those years.
following year I decided to take my sister to the Florida Keys to
go swimming with dolphins. It was incredible. We did the natural
swim which allowed us to swim freely with the dolphins. I was able
to hold my breath and swim to the bottom. I had all the dolphins
around me, checking me out. It is amazing to have a dolphin stare
at you. They move there heads back and forth to really check you
out, almost like a human staring at you. My sister still talks about
that. We also went snorkeling out to the reef in Fort Lauderdale
during that vacation. I didn't even know that Ft. Lauderdale had
a reef, but it was truly spectacular - we saw wild turtles, and
great big French Angel fish. It was beautiful to see all the marine
life. It impressed me so much that I plan to get my scuba certification
and spend more time exploring the waters off the Florida coast.
I still love Florida for it's beaches and
parks, but I know there's so much more to do, its like I'm addicted.
I need to incorporate other adventures, I want to try some horseback
riding, freshwater and saltwater fishing, an Everglades tour, and
maybe even some hot air ballooning.
From now on, I'll be looking for new, fresh
and exciting adventure activities. And I know they're there! I'll
be using this site to find the things I'm looking for and I would
recommend anyone who likes a little adventure do the same. Florida
has so much to offer, you won't be sorry when you try some new adventures.
The memories will last forever.
