Plan Your Florida Summer Vacation Now around NRLC 2011

By Darlene Hart

Start your next summer vacation with the National Right to Life Convention June 23–25, 2011.The pro-life educational event of the year will be housed in a beautiful hotel in Jacksonville, Florida, where you will meet old friends and make new acquaintances.

This part of the Sunshine State is perfect for a family vacation, so bring the kids and plan to stay an extra week. Jacksonville is only one hour away from historic St. Augustine, our nation’s oldest city. If golf is your sport you’ll want to stop along the way at the World Golf Village and visit the World Golf Hall of Fame, or take in a movie at the IMAX Theater. There’s even an 18-hole mini golf course that is both adult and kid friendly.

Once you arrive in St. Augustine you can take a trolley ride through the city or walk thru the city gates and along St. George Street with its unique shops. Maybe take in the old fort or climb the lighthouse. There’s so much to do there.

If history is not for you then maybe you’re interested in outer space. Cape Canaveral and the Space Center are only two hours away. But before you get there you’ll pass Daytona Beach. Any NASCAR fan in the family will want you to stop by and visit the Daytona Speedway, home of the Daytona 500! It’s right off the interstate on your way to the Cape.

Of course no trip to Florida is complete without a visit to our most famous resident ... Mickey Mouse. Walt Disney World Resort is a short three-hour ride from Jacksonville. There the adventure is endless, from riding the Tea Cups in the Magic Kingdom to having lunch in Germany at Epcot Center.

So save the date and begin planning now. Mark your calendars and make plans to vacation in sunny Florida and attend NRLC 2011. Watch NRL News for more details.
