4 Inexpensive Ways to Stay Cool with Your Family Over the Summer

Summers can be hot, but Florida summers are especially hot!

For those enjoying summer break, spend some time with your family!  Osceola Christian Preparatory School has a few things you can do over the summer with your family without having to spend a fortune.

Find a day to go to the beach. Take advantage of only having that one to two hour drive to either Florida beach coast.  Pack up some sandwiches and head out for some fun in the Sun!  All you need to cover the cost is the gas or bus expenses to get to the beach.  Head out in the early morning, then come back in the evening to fill up the day.

Have a pool day.  If the beach is still not an option, due to the distance, take a day to cool off in the community pool if there is one available in your area.

Parks! We don’t mean amusement parks, but ones with big grassy areas and trees!  Central Florida has plenty of local parks around that people can go out and enjoy a sport or have a walk. Bring a ball or Frisbee and have a picnic in the shade!

Backyard water fight!  Whether in your backyard or out in the community playground, a water fight is a great way to stay cool with your family.  Pull out the super soakers, soggy dodge balls, and water balloons!  There are games such as water balloon dodge ball, water duck-duck-goose (Where instead of tagging the person who calls you a goose, you have to get them wet with a water balloon.), and many other games with a staying-cool twist.

Cruise Night in Kissimmee

Love old cars? We sure do!

We have the perfect idea for a great family night!

The most well known classic car cruise in the world, the Saturday Nite Cruise®, hits the streets of Old Town every Saturday!

Celebrate a time when the automobile was more than just an appliance, a time when the automobile was the blend of the all-American ideals of individualism and freedom! Kissimmee’s Old Town captures this feeling every Saturday night as they invite all pre-1975 hot rods, street rods, and antiques to join a cruise down memory lane!

Come out to line the streets of Old Town to watch this grand parade of autos! The cars start arriving at 1 p.m. At 7 p.m., a live band takes the Main Stage. The famous Saturday Nite Cruise starts rolling down Old Town’s brick streets at 8:30 p.m.
