So I am about to do another video here on the area.  And I was looking for new ideas and fun attractions  or anything really that you would like to see.  Saying all that I want to tell you a little story.  It was a good o’ll time I had here on the east coast.  Now before I get into this story I want to let you know that there are tones of fun ideas I haven’t even explored yet…and I know this.  And that is why I need your help.  I need you to tell me what you want to hear from me.  After all if you help inspire me to try new things I will come back and report my experience with you.  Now that is the good the bad and the ugly…I keep it strait with you I promise.

Anyway, the other day I was visiting one of my favorite cocoa beach hotels when I noticed this cute little couple about to go out to dinner.  They looked in brochure after brochure.  I saw that they spoke to everyone around them looking for some kind of idea about where they should go for dinner.  I walked up to them and told them about a few different florida restaurants in cocoa beach that they might like.  They decided on one of my recommendations that went from there.  But something I learned from that speaking with them was very interesting to me.  It was that most people generally want the same thing when they go out to dinner.  They want a specific experience from a certain kind of environment to matches the memory they want to create.  If you take that information and you hold that up against who they are with you get a few different ideas.  Like do they want to spend that time with their family or on a date and so on.  At the end of the day you want to remember to be specific about what you want and people can always help you get there.


Yep I said, it chill-laxen, that might not be the right way to pronounce a word that doesn’t really exist.  But I was trying to add, chilling with relaxing and that is what I got chill-laxen.  That is what my nephew told me we are about to go do at one of the hotels in cocoa beach we are staying at.  But anyway, we are about to go have a little family fun.  I was wandering if I have already experienced all of the fun things to do in Florida already but I learned today that I haven’t and according my family even if we have done everything there ways to offer… there is still tones of fun in Chill-laxen right?  Have you looked up at the sky lately or enjoyed a sun set.  Don’t forget that living is more than just making a living.  Have some fun, enjoy your family and go a little trip.




So… My mom is coming down for a little fl family beach vacations with with us.  I can’t wait to see here.  I know her grand kinds can’t wait.   But to have her around for three weeks, well some say its a little much.  But we will see I think the trick is to keep here busy.  It won’t be hard though.  There is Tons of Things to do in Florida stuff I have wanted to do that I haven’t yet. I think I am going to try and get here on an echo tour.  But I am not sure if I am going to be able to make it happen.  She is a pretty fancy lady, and Its my bet that she would be more interested in the central Florida shopping then seeing lots of wild life.   But I know it would be great for here, deep down.  What do you think I should do to get here to take a chance on something fun and out of the ordinary like jet skis or something.  You see I really want to get here out of her comfort zone and created a fun time she will never forget.

The big thing with mom I think is to just take here and not really make plans with here.  I know once she gets into any outdoor situation she will have a blast..she just has to get there.




So the other day I was trying to work on my lap top when my kids kept talking and kept grabbing my hand and doing there best to make sure I hung out with them instead of getting my work done. Now that would have been fine and all because they deserve the time and attention from me.

But I had a deadline and out of no-where I found myself saying… If you guys can just give me two more hours I will take you to any hotel in cocoa beach fl this weekend.   Then I thought to myself, did I really say what I thnk I said… really?

Yep I did, I realized I had a little peace and quite so I got back to work forgetting about the little family florida beach vacation idea I promised everyone.  Well I put down my computer and then It came to me.  I just planed a local vacation.  Not bad.  I think the kinds deserve it.  I deserve it and after all there are a couple little restaurants in cocoa beach florida I have been wanting to check out.


Anyway, my advice to you is… if you live in florida you should still find the fun things to do in florida.  If you don’t live here you should still come visit us.  I know this weeks blog was a little bit of a ramble.  The funny thing was, I put down my computer half way through tipping this up because of my kids and now its so late I am to tired to tell you the rest of the story.  I’ll wait to give you the details the next time we talk.  Until then have a great day!

So I was fishing the other day with some friends and they were talking about the best family florida beach vacations and I have to tell you there are a lot of great choices out there. So the conversation went on and on. Partially because every time I start talking about things like the hotels in cocoa beach fl or anything related to taking a trip I kinda end up going on a bit of a tangent. Thats what everyone else says anyway. I say I am just passionate about what I do.

So out of no where a big redfish grabs the line and takes off. The conversation immediately paused as my friends ran around to help me catch fish that seemed to be huge by the way it was pulling. So I played the powerfully gental game of tug-a-war with this beast of a fish. After about about 12 minutes I thought I had this fish. I was dreaming about turning my dining room into one of Cocoa Beaches Best Restaurants for the evening with this fish. When out of no-where the line broke. I was bumming for a little while but it inspired all my friends to keep fishing for another couple hours. I think they were going after the fish that got away.

So the other day I was sitting with some friends overlooking the water talking about all the fun things there are to do in cocoa beach Florida. And I decided to check the mail. Now for me personally, I don’t get many hand written letters anymore. Do you? Well anyway. I had to give it a read. And let me tell you, it was nice to get a little reminder of how great of a Florida Beach Vacation Destination Cocoa Beach is. Let me tell you why… You see I get emails every once and a while about how much fun people have here when they have after finding a one of the hotels in cocoa beach Florida. Simply because I help a lot of people that come to the area find things like restaurants in Cocoa Beach Fl or whatever. But I usually just skim through those. After all who has time anymore to read all of your emails. Nope you just have to kinda make sure there isn’t anything your missing, then move on right?

Well reading a hand written letter was a completely different experience for me. I sat back on my dock and read it like it was a novel, hanging on to every word. In that letter I learned so much about a family that came to the area, and enjoyed a big part of what it has to offer. I am going to tell you the letter inspired me so much that I feel in love with my job of helping people on vacation all over again. In fact so much that I am not going to skim over anymore emails that have different people telling me what a great time they had here in cocoa beach.

In my next little article I am going to tell you a little more about this hand written letter and why it meant so much to me. Until next time!

This little article is about the Cocoa Beach Hotels that I have been too. Of course there are lots of hotels in cocoa beach that I wont talk to you about. Thats why its important to me to hear back from you. Is there any hotels in cocoa beach that you have been to that you believe deserve recognition? It honestly doesn’t matter if the feedback is good or bad. I want to know about your experience so I can help educate everyone that is thinking about going to cocoa beach.

Now when you are choosing a Florida Beach Vacation its not cool to end up choosing the wrong place to say. Thats why in all of these blogs i am not just sharing information but I am also asking your for your experience.

Ok, so I went to the hilton in cocoa beach the other day to and really enjoyed the strawberry pina colada and sushi i would highly recommend it. I got to enjoy it overlooking the pool with the beach in the backgrownd. I live here so I haven’t stayed here yet but I think I am going to the next big event on the beach so I don’t have to drive home.

Are you suprised that I stay at hotels locally even though I live in the eara? Well the reason I do this is because when I get out to the larger events like the air show or the super boat races… I don’t like to worry about anything else but enjoying the event. And its kinda like taking a little mini vacation. Ya, I feel really lucky that I can drive twenty minutes away to take a vacation or stay-cation. Anyway, don’t mean to rub it in if you don’t live around here. But at least you know if you are thinking about going to cocoa beach for a vacation that its nice enough that the locals even stay at the hotels here when ever there is an excuse for it.
