ResortQuest® by Wyndham Vacation Rentals

Homeschool.com’s Product Reviews

Northwest Florida and the Gulf of Mexico—a really idyllic area for family vacationing! Picturesque coastlines, white sugar sands, interesting wild life (I saw my first bald eagle, and I loved watching the dolphins in the ocean!), educational activities, and more—really, you can’t beat the area! But where will you stay? Hotels can be so expensive.

ResortQuest® by Wyndham Vacation Rentals provides top-quality vacation properties that are perfect for homeschooling families (I like having a kitchen, it saves on meals—and a home/condo is so much more comfortable than a hotel room). Some are even pet friendly (our dog LOVES the beach!). Plus, many have amenities (indoor/outdoor pools, fitness centers and direct beach access, to name a few—depending on the chosen location) and many have amazing views (I like being right on the sand, don’t you?).

Plus, there are so many fun/educational things to do in Northwest Florida. In addition to the beach, there are numerous watersport adventures. At the HarborWalk Village in Destin, you can strap on a water-propelled jetpack and shoot 30 feet above the water. You can parasail with a group of friends and soar up to 800 feet in the air three at a time, tandem, or by yourself. Want something a little tamer? Big Kahuna’s Water and Adventure Park in Destin, was voted one of America’s best water parks by the Travel Channel®. Or you can visit the Gulfarium Marine Adventure Park – where kids can see dolphins, alligators, sea turtles, penguins and more (of course, they might see some of these in the wild as well!). The Southern Star Dolphin Cruises are a blast—they’re certainly memorable—your kids will love them. The Navarre Beach Marine Science Station is very educational as is the National Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola. If you have a need for speed, you can spend a day at Pensacola’s Five Flags Speedway and enjoy all of the twists and turns of high-speed racing. Or, you can always play a round of golf – many courses in the area have received honors from Golf Magazine®, Golf Week®, Golf Digest® and Travel+Leisure®. Want more? At Milton’s Adventures Unlimited Outdoor Center, you can zip line through numerous platforms hovering over white sands and clear rivers. Also, we went snorkeling-which was a blast. Just being on….or in the water was so nice!

Plus, ResortQuest offers a Privileges program for their guests which includes discounts on many of the above activities, as well as on spa treatments, bike rentals, food and more. These benefits make a beach vacation even more affordable.

ResortQuest offers everything needed to create a memorable, idyllic, and educational vacation. And I have to say….I LOVE the beaches of Northwest Florida.
