Making unforgettable memories with your family

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Gulf County, Florida. All opinions are 100% mine.

Growing up in Indiana we used to joke that there was a pipeline that existed between Indiana and Florida.  It seemed like everyone in the area vacationed in Florida.  I've actually been to Florida more than I have been to the states that surround my current home. Shocking, I know!

While it would seem like since the mass exodus of people travel to Florida to escape the harsh winters of their homes, that you would just be chasing the crowds.  That is true in some areas of Florida, but it's not true of Gulf County.

Gulf Country is located in Northwest Florida and it is a hidden family {and pet} friendly gem.

GCFL is surrounded by 43 miles of natural shoreline.  You won't find a high rise or busy highway running through the area, but you will find an overabundance of white-sand beaches and amazing sunsets.

This past summer, we took our first family vacation to Hawaii.  One of our favorite things to do on the island was snorkeling.  My eight year old turned into a fish every time he stepped in the water.

Some of my favorite family memories from my childhood were all made on family vacations. As a mom of three now, I am doing my best to help my children see the world and have that shared experience of a family vacation.

Taking a trip with your family is one of the best ways to create lifelong family memories that your children will cherish well into their adulthood. The first question is always, where should we go.  My best advice is to seek out family friendly vacation destinations that have activities everyone will enjoy.

I've zeroed in on Gulf County, Florida since it seems to have a little bit of everything that we look for on family vacations.

We are always looking for family friendly vacation rentals like this one found at No Worries Vacation Rentals to make our stay more enjoyable.  Can you even imagine the stories that the kids would whisper late into the night in this bunk room?

My ideal day at GCFL would start with a sunrise kayak on the legendary Dead Lakes.

We would spend the morning walking on the beach, building sand castles and playing in the surf.

In the afternoon we would snorkel for scallops that would be our dinner that evening.

And we would cap off our day while watching an amazing sunset. Because sunsets are probably my favorite thing ever.
