With the ticket prices for attractions and things to do in Florida's top theme and water parks rising each year, local and out-of-state families are finding it harder and harder to find affordable things to do while on vacation in Florida. With the average worker's paid time off being two weeks, we don't blame you for looking for the most cost-effective, fun activities and attractions to visit with the limited time you have. To save you some time on planning, we've mapped out four different attractions you should include in your travel plans that will show you the real side of Florida.
Since the beginning, our mission has been to provide an unforgettable Everglades experience that promotes a connection with animals while inspiring education and conservation.
