      On the Water

      Lake Carlton is 378 acres in size, with Lake Beauclair to its north. Due to the moderate size, kayaking, canoeing, and other activities on the water are easily accessible.

      Visit Orlando

      If you’re looking for more of a metropolitan experience, you can visit the fun-filled city of Orlando.

      The city is most known for being the home of Walt Disney World, which consists of a handful of amusement parks such as Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Hollywood Studios, and Animal Kingdom as well as two waterparks, Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon.

      However, Disney isn’t the only Orlando attraction. At Universal Studios, guests can grab a pint of butterbeer, fly on a broom or explore Hogwarts at the Harry Potter World. They can also face velociraptors and a giant T-Rex on the Jurassic Park boat ride and explore the Marvel Universe by riding the thrilling Incredible Hulk Coaster.
