With countless attractions, it’s not a surprise why Florida is one of the well-loved travel destinations for families. With attractions that range from monuments to theme parks, children, adults, and even kids at heart will definitely have a lot of fun.
However, with so many places to discover in Florida, it can be quite confusing where to go first, especially when you’re traveling with a baby. But, fret not. Here are some top family-friendly attractions you might want to consider.
Your trip to Florida won’t be complete without seeing the ever-so-popular Walt Disney World. Even if your family isn’t a fan of rides, the happiest place on earth also offers different activities and much safer attractions that you can enjoy even with your newborn, such as indoor stage shows, parades, film festivals, and more.
Of course, you can get to meet and greet your favorite Disney characters too, such as the Disney princesses, Mickey Mouse, Winnie the Pooh, and more.
Gatorland, even just for its name, seems like a place that’s not ideal for babies. However, if you take the necessary precautions, you’ll be fine.
The friendly staff members will keep an eye on you and make sure you’re safe while you get up close and personal with some of the most incredible animals. If you still feel unsure about getting close to a gator, there is a family-friendly petting zoo suited for children.
Universal Studios isn’t just for adults looking for heart-racing rides. Apparently, this popular theme park also offers attractions and rides that are infant-friendly. There are shows dedicated to children too, such as Oh! The Stories You’ll Hear, wherein you and your little ones will hear interesting and fun stories, as its name suggests.
The majority of the rides in Legoland cater to children who are two years and older. However, it’s still a nice place to bring your baby as it has baby-friendly areas too, such as Duplo Farm’s indoor play area and the DUPLO Splash & Play attraction. Like in Universal Studios, this place also lets you see live performances that even your baby will love.
If your baby is an art lover, take them to the Crayola Experience. Here, you’re guaranteed that your “mini-me” will enjoy more than 20 fun and interactive attractions. What makes it more of an ideal place to bring your kids is that these attractions are educational. The place also has a playground in case you need a break from the activities.
Harry P. Leu Gardens
If you just want a relaxing stroll, Harry P. Leu Gardens is one of the top spots in Florida for you. This 50-acre garden features tropical and temperate plants that will make you and your baby closer to nature. Don’t worry about the heat as its walkways are shaded.
However, you won’t find any restaurants here. But you can bring packed food. There are also restaurants nearby in case you don’t have time to pack food.
As they say, your life will really change once you have a baby. But, it doesn’t mean that life’s going to be boring as there are attractions that let you and your baby bond more and have fun. Florida alone has numerous of them.
