Family vacation in Florida

Family vacation is always a family thing we do, even once a year. It doesn’t really need to be more luxury or fancy. You just need something to go out together where you can spend away from home, this is good for mom like me "lol'', first I don’t need to cook and enjoy my free time together with the family.

One of the great location we spend most of the time is Florida,as you know Florida is called"Sunshine State"because the weather is nice all year round. During winter Florida is known as "Snowbirds" meaning people from North go south for the winter,I don't blame them we're one of them especially Michigan is too cold for me and to my in-laws;other than that why we want to go to Florida for vacation because it's closer to us and cheaper to fly.

Why we like Florida for family:
Theme ParksFlorida offer a great theme park for family like Disney World, Animal Kingdom, Epcot, Universal Studio, Bush Gardens and LegoLand and more.
Animal Kingdom
BeachFlorida offers  nice beaches where you can start from Golf coast to  west coast Florida.
Seafoods: This is the reason why I love most, to go down in Florida the seafoods are fresh and good.
Accommodation:Florida offers from your budget range, it depends how much you want to break  the bank.

Last Sunday, unexpected we found a thai food, and the restaurant name is  Thida Thai located in Smyrna, Tennessee.Before we went to the restaurant it has a small store beside it,I bought some thai spicy.

The lunch is under 10 bucks which is pretty good for weekend price. We ordered Pad thai and Pad Kee Mao.

interesting to go back and learn the history.The tour guide has good sense of humor and very informative.Our tour begin with a documentary video and ends with a guided tour.

Too many rules to follow:
The tour was very informative and she quoted in the 1800 there's too many rules you should follow; being a guest and a hostess imagine yourself nowadays the rules before you enter the house, before you eat, things you should learn.
