What's better is that you can visit year-round--snow can't stop you here! Just throw the skis and snowshoes into the car and have a great time. There's plenty of wildlife to enjoy, too.
If large game is your thing, the park is constantly full of large herds of elk. And the bird watching is spectacular! After your hike or wildlife viewing expedition, get a good night's sleep and fantastic meal in nearby Estes Park.
Before you leave, be sure to check out the great shopping opportunities and buy a souvenir to always your remember the great time you and your family had in the Rockies!
There is a continuous line of stores where you can buy many fun things such as toys or even clothing. There are also a lot of entertainers on the board walk doing what they do best. I could spend hours just watching them perform.
I think another great part of Wild wood is its beach. It has a beautiful beach that is free to access. There are always people there and there are plenty of fireguards to make sure everyone stays safe. There are also tons of hotels to spend the nights in. These hotels are all also relatively cheap which is great since they are so close to the boardwalk.
Our favorite family activity is to rent a houseboat and spend three or four days out on the water. The lake is so big that you can go days without seeing anyone else. We swim, scuba dive, and cliff dive. The highest cliff I have jumped off was about 40 feet. Sleeping under the stars on a houseboat is amazing. I have never seen a more beautiful sky. Because it is in the desert, we have never been in summer or winter. We have the best luck with boat availability in April and May.
In addition to all that, throughout the Disney property, there are also all kinds of recreational activities you can do. They offer water skiing, boat rentals, fishing, golf, bicycle riding and more. As for the food, they offer a variety of dining plans.
The plans are good at nearly all Disney restaurants so you eat as much or as little as you want. Right at the Disney hotels themselves, they have events for kids, movie rentals, arcades and board games you can use. Disney World is the ideal place for a well-rounded vacation and a chance to spend some quality family time together too.
The Eiffel Tower was my favorite stop despite the fact that I am afraid of heights. It did however take me an hour to wait in a long line until I could finally climb to the top. I went to the museum there and realized what great cultural heritage the French have. Disney Land Paris is a unique place to go and I felt like I was re living my childhood again. All in all, the trip to Paris was definitely a unique place to go. It is a place of romance and relaxation.
The first was a miniature golf place called Pirates Cove. It’s a great place for kids with it being completely pirate-themed. It also has waterfalls and other running water structures throughout. The feel of it along with the pirate gear around makes you feel like you are actually at a Pirate Establishment.
The other place I loved is called Fun Town USA. It’s a small amusement park about the size of a standard town fair. It has the typical rides, games, and food that would be found at either place. It’s right next to the beach so you have the sounds and smells of the ocean and of course the park and that’s a great feeling.
My best time at the park was when I played a “guess your speed” pitching game. You had to throw 2 pitches and then guess the speed of your 3rd pitch. My little brother really wanted a Toronto Blue Jays batting helmet that was one of the prizes. I was in little league at the time so I decided I could win. I played once and won. My little bro got the hat. We both left happy, him with his prize, and me because I felt pretty good about my 45mph fastball!
The beach itself was fun as well. There is a board walk there with tons of stores, games, and a couple video game arcades. We happen to be there for the July 4th weekend so we were able to sit on the beach one night and watch them set off a bunch of fireworks. I also had my first lobster roll at Old Orchard Beach.
I don’t have one bad memory of the place and I can’t wait to be able to one day take my kids there and watch them enjoy it. I’m also curious about that pitching machine. If it’s still there I might try to another win. This time I will definitely be aiming to get a Red Sox cap!
