Have you ever been to Florida before? I have been twice to visit my mom and sister who live there. The first time I visited, it was during the Christmas holidays. We went to Busch Gardens, Walt Disney World, and Sea World. It was packed! However, I still had a lot of fun! The second time I went to Florida was with my boyfriend, and we went for my little sister’s wedding. It wasn’t so much sightseeing as it was wedding preparation and festivities.
I would love to go to Florida just to sightsee. Have you been to Florida before ? What were your favorite memories?
