What are some fun things to do this summer. Whether you have kids or not. My husband and I are Disney Fans, so you can betcha we will be spending time at Disneyworld this summer. Probably with a grandchild or two in tow. That’s just how we roll.
Here in the Vero and Sebastian area, the beach is always a good time. The best time to go is in the morning, because for us it’s just too hot in the afternoon. But if you bring enough buckets and shovels, a great sand castle build followed by some shell collecting and a little frisbee catching always works well.
An Afternoon movie and then everyone is pretty well tuckered out.
We have the wonderful Environmental Learning Center : “Welcome to our 64-acre island campus! Start your tour with a stop in our Entry Pavilion to pay the small admission fee of $5 for adults and children over 12, FREE for discoverelc members and children under 12. Our Greeter will describe what you can do on campus. Learn about our history and ask about our cell phone audio tour, discovery guides, and site map…Head over to the Discovery Station Interactive Museum which is home to the largest brackish water aquarium in Indian River County, a 145-gallon touch tank where you can get up close with some of the marine animals that occupy the Indian River Lagoon, 3 other aquariums, dioramas with lift panels, hands-on exhibits and a life-size replica of a manatee’s head where you can experience how a manatee eats seagrass from the lagoon floor.”
Not too far away is the Brevard Zoo. There are all manner of things to do. They have the TreeTop Trek, Where you can take a zip line through a trail and see the park from on high. They have a Trek for every level of adventurer from the lowest course with just a few elements and zip lines, all the way up to the Expert Level where you can:”…. test your limits? Take in Canopy Walk, Challenge Reloaded and these 6 additional elements for a total of 41 elements and 14 zip lines! This is definitely our most physically grueling course, but it’s also the most rewarding.”
Or you can simply take a ride on one of the zip lines. If you are all for just keeping your feet firmly planted on the ground, that’s okay too. You can ride the train through the grounds and:”Sit back, relax and enjoy the ride! This 10-minute excursion, narrated by a seasoned guide, whisks guests through an expansive habitat home to camels, ostriches and the rare scimitar-horned oryx.” All Quotes taken from the Brevard Zoo Website.
There is also the Kennedy Space Coast Center in Merritt Island which is a great way to spend a day and learn so much about space travel and history. Even the children will love it.
