Florida’s Lake Okeechobee is home to much more than boating and fishing. The swampy soil in the surrounding counties is home to some of Florida’s best agricultural land. The Martin County Fair will be held February 10th-20th in celebration of some of the most delicious food in the US. A visit to the area will warm you up and bust the winter blues. There is so much to do with children, your kids will want a few recovery days before heading home. Here’s the vacation plan to tire them out.
Go to the Circus
Famous European circus performers, the Amazing Anastasini, are a big top delight. Acrobatics, trained animals, clowns, and stunts make this a performance your children will not soon forget. The circus will be held on the fairgrounds in the evenings to round out your wild day.
If your children tend to tumble around like performers, stay in this waterfront home with space for 8 guests. If they really need to get the sillies out, send them to the entertainment room. A pool table is perfectly accented with alligator discoveries. Or they can go outside to practice their tumbling act. The back yard is large and lush.
Pet the Animals
Who doesn’t love a petting zoo? The Martin Country Fair boasts some of the best domesticated critters in the country. The young people of 4H and FFA will be exhibiting their animals so bring your children to support them.
Eat Great Food
If you’re more into tasty animals than cute animals, you’ve still come to the right place. A BBQ cook-off, bake sale, and artisan food exhibits top the list of treats. Award winning produce may inspire you to rustle up some grub of your own.
This waterfront home is perfect for family meals. The kitchen island with bar seating is as convenient as it is charming. Fish off the dock for a fresh catch to prepare yourself. What a great opportunity to teach the kids how to clean and cook a fish. The kitchen island also provides you with a great food prep area that keeps the little ones away from the stove and close to the sink.
