Parents Note:

North Florida Family Fun Guide Mission Statement-

My child is an active learner. He is very curious and physical, and it's all I can do to keep up with him. So we go places, and see things. We learn things and do things. Florida is our Preschool! Florida is our perfect classroom! Every new experience we have is an opportunity for him to learn, think,and grow. It also gives a great opportunity to explain subjects to him in real world settings. I am convinced that this kind of hands-on learning makes for very successful, well rounded, intelligent adults, like my other two grown sons!

My goal of this website is to identify for you all the fun places to go and to encourage families to do fun and exciting things together, share a variety of fun adventures, to learn together, and make lasting memories. These adventures were all chosen by my son Bryan and myself. Many places gave us free or reduced admission to come in and take pictures and videos for our research. A few did not. But ALL the adventures you see here, are the ones that we chose for you, and we are bringing them to you because we feel they are the best of the best.

I want to thank the small businesses in Florida who work hard every day making these types of fantastic adventures possible. Times are challenging and I am hoping that by getting their name out there, more families will visit them, and their business will prosper! Tell them you saw them here on North Florida Family Fun Guide!
