Adventurous and family friendly ideas for Floridians on only a tank of gas

Last minute get away ideas before the kids go back to school.

An air boat ride that will make your family genuinely appreciate nature.

Kenansville, Florida in Osceola County offers a lot for those that appreciate nature. Wild Florida air boat tours are sure to be a family hit. Make sure to bring the ear plus though, those air boat fans are quite loud. Your family can expect to see all types of wildlife on the tour, including blue herons, gators, and more.

You can truly appreciate what wild Florida looked like just a few hundred years ago. This land is virtually untouched by development, and allows for a great family escape to appreciate the little things in life. Kenansville is only a few miles from Florida’s Turnpike in Osceola County. Be sure to book your air boat rides in advance.

Frolic in the treetops in beautiful Crystal River.

Tree Top Adventure at Faith Haven Christian Retreat Center allows visitors to push themselves to the ultimate limit in this obstacle course more than 20 feet above ground. A system of ropes and tethers keeps you safe while you try to navigate the treetops.

Once strapped in, visitors climb a ladder to the skies and must find a way passed obstacles all while safely roped in. Climb around obstacles and zip down cable lines. Visitors can go through the course as many times as they choose during their allotted two hours. The business hopes to build self-confidence and strength in visitors through the challenges in the course.

For the adventurous family, try flyboarding.

In Palma Sola Bay in Manatee County, flyboarding is a recreational activity that may look strange at first, but packs quite a punch for thrill seekers. A water propelled jetpack straps to your feet, and uses the force of water underneath you to propel you upwards into the sky. You get to fly above water in the ultimate freeing experience.

People say it is actually much easier than it looks, and the worst case scenario is feeling like you are falling off a diving board back into the water. Just squeeze the throttle to be propelled into the air. For an adventurous family, this is the ultimate in an truly unique experience.
