Once a year during the summer, my mom and dad take everyone on a big family vacation. It’s always been that way, even when my siblings and I were young. We have been to the most amazing places. We have lived in Florida our whole life, and our parents have taken us to visit every other state. We have also visited seven foreign countries, including two island nations and one very cold continent. This year, we are staying close to home. My sister is going to have a baby soon, and she can’t travel by plane or train. It’s hard enough for her to travel by car. We decided to plan the family trip to Tampa, Florida this year. Even though we live in Florida, Tampa is still a lengthy drive from our home. Even though our family has spent a day or two in Tampa, we have never spent enough time to visit all of the sites. Tampa has a lot of great things to see and lots of things to do. I’m looking forward to our day at Busch Gardens. My sister is going to spend that day at home with her feet up. We rented a nice Beach rental for 2 weeks. The rental has plenty of room for everyone in the family. The place has five bedrooms and three bathrooms. We have a great view of Clearwater Beach, and you can hear the ocean waves from our porch. We will certainly have a very nice time on our family vacation. Next year, we will be able to resume to ou normal vacation activities.
