Florida is Re-Opening and We Can’t Wait!

Florida is entering phase 2 in re-opening its businesses after mandatory closings due to COVID-19. An executive order by Florida Governor Desantis and his team of professional advisors guide the state into a “Safe. Smart. Step-by-Step.” plan for a Florida recovery. This plan not only outlines business practices such as limiting capacity to 50% and keeping a sanitized environment, but it also relies on individual responsibility. Yes, it’s true – staying safe and well is largely within your own control, and this is good. You’ve already made a wise choice to book a vacation home instead of staying at a hotel and thus distancing yourself from unnecessary crowds, so let’s continue making smart choices and have some Florida Fun!

Highly Recommended – Discovery Cove

Discovery Cove will open June 11th – only days away! Why is this a top recommendation? Discovery Cove is a unique park because it always limits attendance to avoid a crowded park. The park was already designed to give guests privacy and space, so social distancing was never a problem. Add to this the benefit of natural cleanliness from the activities mostly taking place in the water, (something all water parks share of course.) Close encounters are not with human strangers, but with the park animals – Dolphins, Rays, Sharks, Exotic Birds, Otters, and Tropical Fish. Make sure to check out the ticket packages offered and note that some of the animal meet-and-greets have been modified as they re-introduce guests into the park. Many aspects of the experience are add-ons for a fee, and you’ll need to book tickets ahead of time. That being said, this is one of the Orlando attractions well worth the full experience. For most visitors, the Discovery Cove offers once-in-a-lifetime activities that translate into some of the most cherished memories.
