Summer is almost over, but it’s not over yet!  One of these 11 Florida Resorts With Water Parks is the perfect place to take a family vacation, according to Travel + Leisure, before the new school year starts and the day-to-day routine is back in order.

Not everyone is a fan of the beach. Some find it dirty and itchy and the sand can be hard to handle with small kids who might like to eat it.  I speak from experience with my daughter.

If you’re more of a “pool” family, you’re in luck.  These resorts, found throughout our Sunshine State, are the perfect destination for a last minute family vacation before summer comes to a close.  I can’t think of a better way to cool down in this 90 – 100 degree humid heat than going down waterslides or floating in a lazy river.  A drink in hand gets bonus points.  I’m thinking a strawberry daquiri or a raspberry margarita will do.  Anything frozen.  Or maybe a mango or black cherry seltzer?  Or a cold beer with a lime?  Now I’m thirsty and I’ve gotten way off track.  Back to it.

So, if you’re looking for a quick getaway, you’ll definitely want to check out the list of 11 Florida Resorts With Water Parks.
