Family Vacations


Lake in the Forest Black Bear Resort

This place is an example of one spot for those who want an all-in-one spot to let the kids have supervised activities, etc.

Located in the middle of the byway at Forest Corners, the family vacation spot has a little pool, cabins for those who don’t want to rough it as much as a tent. RVs are welcome. This is a low-maintenance way to get closer to nature with the whole family. Great jumping – off spot to wander elsewhere during the day and return for night festivities.

Silver Springs Nature Park

Make a low-key theme park trip to Silver Springs Nature Park, where you can drift in glass bottom boats and take you time wandering to view wildlife. This is a much less hectic trip than Disney and Universal, and much less expensive.
