The northeast has been under winter’s siege since late January with above average snowfalls being recorded all over the country. Nearly 8 feet of snow has fallen on Boston alone in the past three weeks!
This may be well and good for winter sports—our family has certainly taken advantage of the awesome conditions on the ski slopes and snowshoe trails of Vermont this season—but shoveling the driveway, dealing with power outages, and listening to repeat blizzard warnings have been far from fun.
I’m really starting to miss my daily run in the state park near my house and would love to head to the grocery store without having to dress for an expedition on Everest. But with ice and snow continuing to fall and that darned groundhog predicting even more winter, it doesn’t look like a thaw is on its way anytime soon.
Fortunately, for most of us in the frozen north, blue skies and balmy temperatures are within easy reach with a short flight to sunny Florida. What better way to kiss the cold away and get back outdoors than trip down to beautiful Kissimmee? Though central Florida is probably best known for it’s world-class theme parks, there are lots of opportunities for visitors to get out and explore nature. Imagine a place where you can zipline through the trees, skim across the headwaters of the Everglades in an airboat, or paddle along a cypress-lined creek. With year-round beautiful weather, Kissimmee is the perfect place to soak up some much-needed sunshine in the midst of a long, cold winter.
Sounds awfully appealing right about now, doesn’t it? This Tuesday evening I’m teaming up with the folks at Experience Kissimmee to talk about all the ways you can Kiss Cold Away and explore the beautiful natural areas of Central Florida. During the party we’re giving away four Boxes of Sunshine that include plenty of warm-weather goodies to help inspire you to kiss the cold away.
