This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of VISIT FLORIDA for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.


I’ve lived in Florida most of my life, since I was eight. There were many times when I wanted to move away up north. But something happened when I had my son eleven years ago. I decided I like Florida and did not want to move.

When we decided to move out of South Florida, I still wanted to stay in Florida just further north.

What do I love about Florida? I love the weather. I like hanging out outside in shorts and tank tops. I love the beach and the palm trees. Summertime is a great time to visit. You can hang out at the beach and get a tan. Make sure to use lots of sunscreen though!

Right now Florida has a great sweepstakes going on called Florida’s Three for Free Giveaway. To enter, You choose three out of twelve summer vacation options. One grand prize winner will win all three of their dream vacations! Nine others will win one vacation. VISIT FLORIDA on Facebook too!

You can choose from the list below:

— Swim with manatees in the wild, visit Homosassa Springs State Park, and stay at the lovely Plantation on Crystal River.

–Splurge on tennis, cooking classes and a $250 shopping spree in luxurious Destin. Spend four glorious days and nights on the Emerald Coast as a guest of Resort Quest by Wyndham.

— Explore Anna Maria Island, Longboat Key and Bradenton on bike and Segway, and go horse-surfing, on Florida’s Gulf Coast.

— Thrill the family with a trip to LEGOLAND and its new Water Park, go zip-lining at Fantasy of Flight, and then unwind in serene Bok Tower Gardens, all in Central Florida.

 So what would I pick? Even though I live here, I would love to win! I would choose to swim with manatees at the Plantaion on the Crystal River and tickets to the Homosassa Spring State Park, sponsored by the Plantaion on the Crystal River. That would super cool! Second, I would love to visit the Kennedy Space Center, sponsored by Space Coast Office of Tourism. I have never gone there before. And lastly, the PGA National Resort. I would love to have a spa weekend, sponsored by the PGA National Resort and Spa. I used to live in PGA and have never visited their resort!
