Keeping the kids amused
In the unlikely event that the kids get bored of the pool or beach then there’s always something in the area to keep them amused as they encounter wildlife and adventure in the outdoors. Here are some Day Out ideas:-
Who wants some hands-on, action packed outdoor adventure?
Then head for Babcock Wilderness Adventures, where you can lunch on alligator “bites” and barbeque before taking a swamp buggy tour through the Telegraph Cypress Swamp among four natural habitats. Bring your camera and snap keepsake photos (see Outdoor Action & Adventure section for more information).
Ever thought about hiring a WaveRunner or kayak?
Island Jet Ski Tours & Rentals in Englewood can help you plan an action pack day on the water. They also organise guided dolphin tours, deep-sea & bay fishing and even stock electric skateboards!
Make a splash!
When you’re looking for fun in the sun, Sun Splash Family Waterpark, Cape Coral is the perfect place to make a splash for the whole family of all ages. After much anticipation, Sun Splash has officially opened three exciting, new high-speed slides for guests (over 48") to enjoy. Experience the thrill of plunging five stories down the park's newest attractions:
- Free fall up to 40 feet per second on the X-celerator, the park's fastest and most extreme slide;
- Face your fears on the Terror Tube, an enclosed flume with gradual descent into a sudden, heart pounding drop;
- Dare to catch air on the Thunder Bump, an open chute with 264 feet of steep, speed bumps!
Just minutes from the villa is a lovely safe playground, bike trails, multi-purpose fields open space, nature preserve, nature trails, picnic area, tennis courts and rest-rooms.
