Ever since we returned from our trip last year to Puerto Rico
, my son has been begging for us to take him to the beach! Living in an area with no beaches it was hard to comply with his wishes. Nonetheless, summer was here, and thanks to both hubby, and my in-law for winning a free weekend get-away we were able to hit the road and go to Florida!
We planned a weekend get-away to East Central Florida (Daytona Beach, Ormond Beach and Cape Canaveral) driving through Georgia. It’s a 5 hour drive but between the stops, and grabbing something to eat it will take around 7-8 hours. Therefore, I had plenty of road trip busy boxes, and snacks for little one.
We planned for a long weekend from Thursday through Sunday. However, due to the short time that we were going to be there I really wanted to make the best of it. I used an app to map our route, in Georgia we stopped at the rest area, and we found an offbeat attraction in Jacksonville, Florida (Gator Boulevard). I added a few more places to stop and visit while we were in the East Central Florida area.
