There are plenty of ways to stay cool this summer when you're enjoying an Exploria Resorts vacation. Orlando's amazing water parks, Daytona's famous beaches, New Smyrna's celebrated surfing culture, and thrilling Pocono Mountain adventures – you can't go wrong. And be sure to set aside time to just chill at these beautiful, laid-back resorts. Orlando Water, Water Everywhere A vacation at Summer Bay Orlando By Exploria Resorts offers plenty of ways to keep cool without even going off-site. Spend time at the private, 64-acre, spring-fed lake – it's perfect for a wide range of watersports including jet skiing, kayaking, and floating along on a pontoon boat. Stroll the resort's white-sand beach, take a dip in one of six refreshing pools, or watch the kids go wild at Parrot's Landing interactive water playground. And you'll have lots of opportunities to unwind with an adult beverage at one of the pool bars. Cool Water Park Thrills Orlando's water parks offer a variety of ways to escape the heat in between theme park visits. At Disney's Blizzard Beach, only eight miles from the resort, you can chill out all summer long. It features one of the world's tallest and fastest free-falling waterslides, as well as slides and rides for the whole family – like a kid-sized, snow-castle fountain play area. (Disney's second water park, Typhoon Lagoon, is currently closed due to the pandemic.) Discovery Cove at SeaWorld is a one-of-a-kind experience where you can interact with bottlenose dolphins, feed tropical birds, and play inches from a family of otters in the Freshwater Oasis. Snorkel with tropical fish and rays in The Grand Reef, relax in the large resort pool, and swim along a tropical river. SeaWorld's Aquatica is home to some of the world's most thrilling water rides, featuring 42 slides, rivers, and lagoons, and 84,000 square feet of white, sandy beaches. From exhilarating wave pools to the steepest, multi-drop waterslide in Orlando, Aquatica offers something for all ages and interests. Universal's Volcano Bay has four tropical-themed areas inspired by the Pacific Isles, each with a mix of relaxing and thrilling experiences. At the heart of the park, Krakatua Aqua Coaster twists and turns through the 200-foot-tall volcano. Volcano Bay also features serpentine body slides, two lazy rivers (one of which isn't so lazy), a wave pool, and thrilling drop slides that will leave you breathless. Daytona & New Smyrna Beach Refreshing Ocean Breezes Daytona Beach and neighboring New Smyrna Beach are two sides of a coin – the bustling beach community that's always abuzz, and the low-key beach town with a laid-back vibe. Together, they represent Central Florida's most popular beach destinations and the perfect place to keep cool with Exploria Resorts. A full lineup of refreshing pastimes awaits at Grand Seas By Exploria Resorts in Daytona Beach. Order a cocktail from the Grand Seas Tiki Bar and relax on the pool deck while the surf rolls in the distance. Make a splash in any of the three on-site pools, including two outdoor pools with water slides and kiddie areas. Just down the coast, New Smyrna Waves By Exploria Resorts offers three distinct building options – all just steps from the surf and sand. Head to the beachfront pool deck, drink in hand or cool down with idyllic views from your patio. Regardless of the resort you choose, your vacation can't get more rejuvenating than this.Watersports Heaven There are dozens of ways to beat the heat here, and all of them involve the water. You can drive your car on Daytona Beach, at designated areas, pick a spot, pull out the beach chairs, and spend the day playing in the waves! More active pursuits include everything from boating, windsurfing, parasailing, scuba diving, offshore fishing, and sailing charters, to kayaking at Mosquito Lagoon and paddle boarding across Indian River Lagoon. One of the area's most popular watersports is surfing. In fact, New Smyrna Beach was named one of the world's top 20 surf towns by National Geographic. Local surf shops and instructors rent boards and offer both private and group lessons. The area's top surfing spots are Ponce Inlet (Daytona Beach) and Bethune Beach (New Smyrna Beach). The Poconos Chill Summer Sports Summer sparks endless ways to play and stay cool in Pennsylvania's Pocono Mountains, and you can find several of these at Pocono Mountain Villas By Exploria Resorts. In addition to horseback riding, tubing, and swimming, what better way to beat the heat than ziplining through the treetops? The staff at Pocono TreeVentures will make you feel like a ziplining, tree-walking, rope-climbing pro by the end of the day. The park features 1,000-foot, dual racing zip lines, tree climbing walls, and nine zip lines connected by bridges and ladders. With so much natural beauty in the area, what better way to see it than from above? From Mild to Wild The Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area offers a long list of water activities to keep the summer heat at bay. There's a designated swim area at Smithfield Beach, less than five miles from the resort, where you can take a picnic lunch and stretch out on the grass along the river's shore. Canoeing, kayaking and tubing on the Delaware River are also popular summer pastimes, and there are several outfitters that can set you up for a day on the river surrounded by lush green mountains. If you decide to take it up a notch, consider a whitewater rafting trip. Visitors can take to the rapids while enjoying a glimpse of the surrounding wilderness and its wildlife.Adventure with Exploria Resorts No matter where you stay, after a day filled with refreshing adventures, you'll look forward to returning to your home-away-from-home at Exploria Resorts.
