Florida Villas Direct holidays
Of course, as everyone knows, there's Disneys' Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, Epcot, & Disney-MGM, then Seaworld, Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure, & Busch Gardens - all of which are fantastic fun, whether your 8 or 80, especially Seaworld, which after many Florida holidays is my particular favourite.
For my first Florida holiday I stayed in a Florida villa at Sunridge Woods, which was well sited to get to Disney etc without any undue waste of time. Since then I have continued to stay in Florida villas in the same area of Davenport with the last three visits spent in executive villas at The Manor at West Haven - a super gated community with larger than average pools, jacuzzis, and games rooms.
But what else is there besides the theme parks? Really too much which is why I have returned to Florida so many times. There are Shopping Malls: Water Parks: Restaurants: Dinner Theatres. Most clients visit the Florida Mall, on Orange Blossom Trail, just past Alligator Park, which is the main tourist Mall, & recommended to 'shop 'till you drop', as they say ! Great alternatives, for a shopping day, are the Mall at Millennia, & Premium Outlets. The Millennia is just off I4, at the Conroy-Windermere exit, & is to be seen to be believed: Macy's, Tiffanies, Nieman Marcus, etc - very up-market indeed, with a relaxed & uncrowded atmosphere, & restaurants ranging from the casual food-hall, good valued Cheesecake Factory, to the elegant & sophisticated style of Tuscan Brio. Premium Outlets is an outdoor, discount or ‘end of line’ Mall, near the CR535 exit of Interstate 4. As you spend an hour or so walking out the loop of stores, you’ll see Nike, Armani, Bebe, DKNY, Timberland, Tommy Hilfiger, etc, all with amazing discounts, of sometimes as low as 20% of original retail price. If you’re religious, you’ll appreciate the Holy Land theme park, which although being only on a few dozen acres, is charming & relaxed, serves good food, & delivers a little education about Christian History – it’s situated just before the entrance to the Mall at Millennia, so is a contrasting afternoon, if you visit both !
