Sunshine Villa Florida

Our Top 5 Recommendations When Visiting

Here are our favourite things to see and do in the Orlando area.
Some are are not necessarily in the immediate area, but worth a venture out in our opinion.

1. Beaches

Florida is home to acres of sandy beaches. Our favourites are on the Gulf Coast in Sarasota which is approximately a 2 hour drive.  6 islands line Sarasota’s extensive coastline. Turquoise waters and powdery white sand makes this drive worthwhile. 

Siesta Key beach is our personal favourite, but there are plenty others: Longboat Key, Lido Key, Casey Kay, Manasota Key & more.

2. Kennedy Space Center

“Reach for the Sky”! There are plenty of attractions at the Kennedy Space Centre from meeting an astronaut, to walking through a rocket garden, and even watching a rocket launch right before your very eyes!

Only 1 hour from Sunshine Villa

3. Boggy Creek

The best everglades experience in Central Florida! Only 45 minutes from Sunshine Villa.

Visit Florida’s ULTIMATE natural attraction at Boggy Creek Airboat Rides Southport.  Airboats glide across the water at speeds up to 40 miles per hour. Lake Toho is the headwater to the Florida Everglades, often thought of as one of the world’s greatest treasures.

4. Freshwater Springs


A world away from Florida’s crowded theme parks, the hundreds of springs that bubble up into the state’s streams and rivers provide a stunning oasis.

Blue Springs State Park

A little over an hour drive from Sunshine Villa, what makes this spring unique are the Manatees that migrate in the winter.  Also known as “sea cows” , Manatees are large sea mammals that are very gentle.

Blue Spring’s crystal clear, 73-degree water can be enjoyed by swimmers, snorkelers and certified scuba divers, with a partner during our designated swimming season. Fishing, canoeing, tubing and boating are also enjoyed along the St. Johns River. River boat tours are also available.  More Information on Blue Springs

Kelly Park

Another option and only 45 minutes from from Sunshine Villa is Kelly Park. Grab a tube and float down the free-flowing natural spring (68 degrees year round), full-service concession, picnic pavilions and playground. Tube rentals are available to rent but guests may bring their own pool noodles or floats.  More Information on Kelly Park
