Spring Break Suggestions

Spring Break for families will be here soon. My son, age 8 break is late March and I am looking for suggestions of where to go and do. I live in south Georgia so I need to limit it to SE U.S. Thanks and I hope to hear from many of you.

I also have a son 8 and a daughter 4. We are in central Ms and are considering Disney World, Fort Wilderness, or Elksmont in the Smokey Mtns. Both are closer for you than me.

If Corpus Christi is within your travel limits, I recomend Padre Island National Seashore.

I guess it depends on what you're loking for. Ft. De Soto in St. Petersburg is one suggestion. A beautiful county park that is close to everything yet makes you feel as though you're away from everywhere. Great Biking, fishing...just beautiful.
Fort Wilderness is a Disney resort...lots more people, but a bunch of fun as well. You're camping, but you can visit the parks too.

Jellystone in the Smokies looks nice and has a lot of things for the young ones to do. You can check them out on their website! Hanna-Barbera.com - The Official Hanna-Barbera Destination.

I teach High School kids so I can tell you where not to go because they will be there doing all kinds of wild things. Stay away from Panama City. It will be out of control with to many high school kids.

I go every year in April with twelve guys fishing and boating in the Okefenokee swamp, Stephan Foster State Park. It has always been quiet and they have nice campgrounds. We have never had any problem renting boats and the area is beautiful. The only down side would be if the swamp levels haven't gotten higher. Last year they closed the trails for the boats because the water was so low. The other problem we have faced is no cell towers. In the past we have been limited to a pay phone to call home.

If you are looking for beaches, they are pretty good at Topsail Hill State Park in Florida between Destin and Panama City. No development on them, just dunes and water. And a great RV site to camp.

We camped at Veterans Memorial State Park in Cordele, GA last August. Lots of wildlife to view from Lake Blackshear, including all those friendly alligators. We could have stayed there a week no problem, assuming we had our kayaks and the weather was cooler.

Both sites have good facilities. We have no children. Just dogs.

Eye of the Storm

You really could go to St Andrews in Panama City, just don't leave the campground.
That is very easy to do too, as there are days of activities inside.
Bay beaches, Gulf beaches, Piers (gulf and bay), Jettys, Hiking trails, Deer at night, Boat launch is always entertaining, Museam, and its gated at night.

If you look at the top of your browser, the title of the webpage shows up. On a tabbed browser, such as Safari, it also shows at the top of the tab. When you post a link on the forum, the title is the text that shows up, so that is the title of Jellysone’s webpage.
