Spots to Stay Cool Besides the Beach in SWFL

Jun 17, 2017 10:30AM, Published by Mandy Carter, Categories: Local Living



There are lots of beautiful beaches in Southwest Florida, but if you are looking for something different to stay cool this Summer then take a trip to one of these local water spots.

Sunsplash Water Park
is located in Cape Coral and is Southwest Florida’s largest water park covering 4-acres with slides, pools and splash pads. No matter what kind of water activities you enjoy, this may become your favorite spot to cool off.

Sun-N-Fun Lagoon offers one million gallons of water fun for the entire family. This Naples water park, small in size is packed with things to do to stay cool during the hot summer months in Southwest Florida. Spend a day enjoying the five water slides, lazy river, lap pool, family pool and baby splash pool. http://www.napleswaterpark.com/

Zoomer's Amusement Park is more than just an arcade, go carts and rides. At this Fort Myers family entertainment center you can cool off on the giant water slide, water wars, and bumper boats.  http://www.zoomersamusementpark.com/

Lakes Park Splash Pads offers a lot of family activities but during the hot months the the little ones favor the splash pads. Bring a picnic lunch and some sunscreen to enjoy a few hours at the two water features. http://www.leegov.com/parks/facility?fid=0101

Fort Myers Aquatic Center is part of the City of Fort Myers Recreation program residing within Sam Fleishman Regional Sports Complex. The facility has 10-lane, junior Olympic sized competition pool and a 30-foot slide tower that includes 3 different rides in addition to its popular zero entry kiddie pool for children equipped with a play feature. http://www.cityftmyers.com/553/Aquatics
