Located in the heart of Central Florida's family vacation paradise, Summer Bay Orlando by Exploria Resorts is the ideal setting for a dream vacation. Most people who visit the Orlando area come for the adrenaline-pumping excitement found at its world-famous theme parks, including Walt Disney World Resort, Universal Orlando, and SeaWorld Orlando. But the excitement of running around from one rollercoaster ride to the next can leave you feeling drained. Even if you're skipping the parks, Orlando's entertainment options are so vast, you might just need a vacation from your vacation. Especially if you're traveling with little ones. Summer Bay Orlando guests choose their own pace. Is your idea of ‘vacation bliss' lounging by the pool with a cold beverage by your side?
