Summer Bay Resort Orlando is just 6 quick miles from Walt Disney World® Resort offering complimentary scheduled transportation and within a thirty minute drive from the Universal Studios® Orlando Theme Park Complex and Sea World Parks and Entertainment®.

Judy and I have traveled over 4000 miles so far on our “Journey of Freedom” as we have coined it along the way.  No firm schedules and plenty of time to take side roads to meet the real folks who live in the small rural towns along the way.  We took the Gulf Coast route from Pensacola to Orlando.  This scenic route http://www.floridascenichighways.com/big-bend-scenic-byway/ was well worth the extra time.  We didn’t waste anytime once arriving to Summer Bay Resort to think only about rest and relaxation for a few days to allow our “60 something” but young at heart bodies take a break.  The weather is perfect, balmy, about 80 degrees during the day.  We will be in Florida for about two months starting this week to really explore this beautiful country from every angle, while catching up with friends and family along the way.
