Sam Haught Chomp House Grill

Vacation is all about having fun and enjoying yourself, which usually entails sleeping too much and indulging in some of your favorite foods, right? The food specialties are different everywhere you travel, and no vacation is complete until you get to try it all. Just like Texas is known for the best steaks and burgers, and Chicago is known for its hot dogs, Florida cooks up some of the best southern food… or as we call it, southern comfort food! Although eating out is one of the many perks of vacationing, preparing food at your vacation home is a fun activity for the whole family to get involved in. With a happy, delicious ending!

Are you undecided on where to take your family on an Orlando airboat ride? A good way to find out honest opinions on attractions or vacation destinations is to hear from guests who have already been to the location you’re planning on visiting. Reviewers aren’t paid to post about their experience, so they’re usually truthful, for better or for worse. For many people, having a good time and getting the best bang for your buck are important factors to consider. If you’re bringing little ones along, other factors may come into play, too. Not all airboat rides in Florida are the same! So, we’re sharing which key factors to consider when reading reviews for an Orlando airboat ride.
