RTX Traveler Magazine Issue 12 | Florida

2016-Traveler-May-CoverThis issue of RTX Traveler Magazine is a little different from the last few issues, as we chose to highlight four destinations instead of one. The main common thread in these four vacation spots is that they are all located in sunny Florida, by far one of the most popular states among our members for vacation reservations. The destinations we chose to highlight are particularly popular with families, so we’ve focused on activities, attractions and dining options that are great for kids as well as adults.

Our featured destinations also cover a lot of family friendly vacation activities, from zoos and science museums to great theme park vacations.

We hope you enjoy our Florida Family Fun issue of RTX Traveler Magazine as we give you some of our suggestions for things to do in Cocoa Beach, Kissimmee, Naples and Fort Lauderdale.
