I have never been to Florida, have you? Living high in the Sierra Mountain range, in chilly Northern California, I often dream of the Sunshine State. If you live in Florida, or have been there, I would love to know what you do for a good Florida adventure? Currently (May 27 to June 2) the package includes a trip to Bonaventure Resort and Spa. This would be a perfect package for my family since they have a terrific golf course, and are located near the only tropical zoo in Miami. Of course my kids are happy as clams just to be pool side. Besides pampering myself at the spa, I could improve my golf swing with my husband, and explore Zoo Miami with my kids. I just entered and you can too. It's easy, for a chance to win head to Florida’s 500 Years of Adventure Sweepstakes. You will fill out a quick and easy online entry form. You can enter each week for a new and different Florida adventure package.
