I have had some requests to post pet friendly beaches for your review. I personally do not have any pets, but I found a good website that breaks the beaches down by region so it is easy for you to look through. I am attaching the link so that you can check it out for yourself and have fun in the sun with your best friend.

We saw many animals while at the zoo, but our favorite area by far was the petting zoo where we were able to feed the goats and Zebu's and pet the llama. I think the kids would have stayed all day just in this one area.
If you are looking to do something that is both affordable and enjoyable for your kids, I would suggest taking the drive and checking out this small friendly zoo.

This year a group of people I work with all got together and we to the Monster Jam at the Citrus Bowl. We had an absolute blast. I am not one that is really into Monster trucks so I wasn't sure how much fun it was going to be, but I will now go everytime they are in town and Cody absolutely loved it. Before it was even over he was asking if we could come again. Twice each year the Monster Jam comes to the Orlando area as well as Tampa. If you have the opportunity to go I suggest you do. The tickets are extremely reasonable and the amount of fun that you will have is so worth the expense. Below are some pics from that event.

A few things I learned -
1st. There is a public beach and park that is on Lake Osceola name Dinky Park, Dinky Beach and a public boat access. Small little beach area to go swimming at as the Lakes are spring fed.
2nd. That Rollins college has one of the highest percentage of undergradutes move on to graduate school than the majority of the larger colleges. There is ten students to every teacher.
3rd. That Mister Rogers actually lived at one of the houses on Lake Osceola and the front porch was the one used in his show. (pic below)
5th. The lone cypress tree (pic below) gets decorated by the residents every year for Christmas starting in November
6th. The largest house on the Lakes is 24,000 square feet and was built by Horace Grant. He lived there for a year before being traded off and sold the house and everything in it except his clothes to the new owners.
