We have put together some fun ideas to spend the day with your grandparents in the Central Florida area. Treat them this year to something new & exciting, that will leave lasting memories. If your Grandpa is an outdoorsman consider something that includes fishing, boating, or golfing. Perhaps a visit to a brewery & some dessert after. Grandma may be looking forward to a spa day or a nice evening out for dinner with family. Check out some great ideas below!
Westgate River Ranch & Rodeo
Experience an authentic Florida dude ranch that is just an hour south of Orlando in Polk County, FL. Westgate River Ranch & Rodeo lies on about 1700 acres overlooking the Kissimmee River. You can camp in style here, with their air-conditioned tee-pee rentals, cabins, or glamping tents. Make a weekend out of it!

If your looking for a place to spend a few hours, try the driving range! Baseline Golf Course is local and has a lighted driving range open to the public, where you can rent a bucket of balls for about $5.00. They are located at 9000 SE 58th Avenue Ocala, FL 34480. If indoors is more your style, a trip to Orlando or Tampa brings you to Top Golf where you can basically do the same thing, but with food, drinks, and an indoor/outdoor vibe.

Fishing is a fun thing to do, but how about going on a fishing charter boat for the day? Ocala Fishing Charters offers several options for about $100.00 a day to cast a line out on numerous freshwater lakes & rivers. See their website to find out more https://ioutdoor.com/fishing/florida/ocala/
