Favorite Restaurants

These are some of our favorite places to eat that are close. There are many great restaurants and tons of fast food in the area.
Weekends have live bands. There are fun games outside like corn hole and jenga, and a few fire pits if you want to sit outside. The food pricing is reasonable and my kids loved it. One time the band played 90's music all night, and I wanted to drink beers and stay all night.

Mmmmm. Try to show up when they are making them fresh, and they will give you one off of the line while they are warm!

This is the best mini golf we have found so far! We played the easy course since we had all the littles. It was a very cool course. Kids had a blast and you can feed small alligators when you are done. Highly recommended by the whole fam, and not too far from the house. (10-15 min)

Golf

Played in 2019. #2 was very cool. Not the best fairways we have played on, but fun and close to the house. I beat Jaegher (my oldest) by one. He is a state champ. He didn't like it. Channing (my second) lost a lot of balls. And I mean a lot of balls. One of the greens keepers even noticed and brought a few over to him that he had found in the rough! Hilarious.

Pier 60 Awesome place to swim in the Gulf. We saw some huge manatees about 30 feet from us swimming in about three and a half feet of water. It was a little spooky. Kind of like a cow in the water is what my Nebraska kids thought.

Traveler advice

Getting around

West Irlo Bronson Boulevard has a bit of everything.

There are plenty of places to eat and play along this highway. Most of the places in my guidebook are along this highway. It is very easy to get around, but gets a little busy around Disney closing hours.
What to pack

Universal Water Rides=Bring a change of clothes

If you plan to ride the water rides, especially Ripsaw falls, you will get completely drenched. Makes for a long day in wet socks and drawers!!
