In March 2008 we did a weekend trip up to Orlando. Except for a foray into Universal Orlando to see the Blue Man Group we stayed away from the theme parks.
We did a day trip up to Ocala National Forest and canoed down the Juniper Springs. Great trip on the very shallow river with crystal clear water. They don't allow disposable containers so bring some sports bottles to avoid buying the expensive but bad ones they have in the shop.
Spent another day in the Winter Haven watching the St. Patrick's day parade and taking a scenic boat tour of the chain of lakes. The evening was spent stuffing ourselves at the excellent Ceviche restaurant listing to good live guitar music and watching flamenco dancing.
