Over our spring break, we visited the Withlacoochee State Forest where there are springs and cave entrances to explore. It was a dream come true for my two boys, who are 9 and 11. Not far from that spot, we camped at the Chassahowitzka River. I’m not one for camping, but the water in the river was crystal clear and full of mangrove snapper, underwater caves and springs, and trees full of ripe oranges. Visiting the River and Forest was like stepping back in time to old world Florida.
From there, we drove a couple of hours to Anna Maria Island. It’s a beach paradise also like something from years past, no high rises or condos in site with approximately seven miles of pristine clear blue beaches. Just bring a beach chair and a good book. That was my trade-off for camping!
Our neighbors visited nearby Orlando with their kids but not just for the theme parks. They went to the Arnold Palmer Invitational at the Bay Hill Golf Club, watching McIlroy, DeChambeau, Rose, Stenson, and Woods place in the top 5. Then came home and took their little league friends to a New York Yankees spring training game at Steinbrenner Field.
