When planning our family vacations, I always keep in mind that I have two very active little guys that require entertainment 24/7. There are many amazing resorts in the sunshine state, but one that we all enjoy going to is the PGA National Resort & Spa.
PGA National Resort & Spa is one of my favorite destinations for a family vacation in Florida. The resort is not too far from home, but once you enter the grounds, you feel like you’ve arrived to someplace special. Our kids can’t wait to unpack and head over to the pool for the poolside activities, such as arts and crafts, contests, snow cones, cotton candy, and a bubble machine.
We hardly ever leave the resort grounds, but if you need a new outfit or want to explore a bit, you have some of the best dining and shopping at your fingertips. Especially around Christmas time, this resort is great fun with their holiday-themed 12 Days of PGA. Special family-friendly events are planned throughout the day like breakfast with Santa, tennis round robins, and golf clinics for all ages, and spa specials.
My husband and I take turns enjoying some alone time – he gets in 18 holes of golf while I play Marco Polo with the kids at the pool. After his game, I head over to the spa for a little well-needed rest and relaxation. After 2 p.m., he’ll take the boys for a quick round of golf before we get ready for dinner. It’s a win-win for the entire family! — Dana Peller, Pellerini
