Florida summers are like nothing else in the world. Those who take long-term or permanent vacations to the beautiful state of Florida often feel as if summer never ends. But if you’re feeling the stress of the end of another summer and getting back to work and school, it might be hard to keep the summer fun feelings going. Don’t let Florida’s fun and natural beauty pass you by! Check out these tips to make sure your eternal summer never gets boring.
Take a hike!
Don’t let your daily routine keep you in your seat all day. Returning to work and school can mean a more sedentary lifestyle, so mix it up by finding new ways to keep active. Gather up the family to take Fido for a nightly walk, or change up your usual route so that everyone has new sights to see. Wekiva Falls offers walking trails and is near other parks and natural spaces to appreciate Florida’s great outdoors.
Break out the grill!
Nothing tastes more like summer than a freshly-grilled meal, but grilling with the family doesn’t have to be limited to burgers, steaks, and hot dogs. Experiment with new dishes and entrees. Challenge your friends and family to try new foods that might not be grilling staples (watermelon, anyone?). Better yet, find new foods to roast over a campfire! Fire-roasted veggies like corn on the cob taste even better when cooked over an open flame.
Hit the water!
Wekiva Falls is only a short drive or day trip from what many visitors love most about Florida—beaches! Aside from these sandy sanctuaries, Florida is overflowing with natural waterways. Fall is a great time to try fishing for the first time (or the millionth!). Wekiva Falls boasts access to the Wekiva River and its various offering of water activities, so a kayak trip might be just the thing to break up the monotony and feel that summer excitement again.
