Florida is full of fabulous destinations that you can take advantage of as a Ridge Landing Airpark resident, but sometimes, there’s just no place like home.
With our airpark centrally located in Frostproof, Florida, there’s really no reason to leave! We have everything we need right here. If you don’t feel like flitting off to a new destination, try exploring your own town; you’ll never know just what you’ll discover. Staying local has its own perks!
For a fun-filled weekend in Frostproof, here are seven things to do — maybe you haven’t even heard of some! It’s time for a stay-cation, Ridge Landing residents.
1. Bass Fishing
There are few things quite as satisfying as reeling in a trophy bass. Captain Reno had been fishing for over 30 years, and he knows his way around the Central Florida lakes, where he’ll take you right to the best spots. If you’re looking for a good time and some bragging rights, book a few hours with Captain Reno and you won’t be disappointed. (863) 632-0304
2. Ramon Theater
Dinner and a show never gets old, and you’ll get a great experience at local Ramon Theater. The oled but restored space hosts a music series, Christmas programs, and plenty of murder mystery dinners, so check out the calendar to plan your next night out.
With Frostproof being so close to Orlando and all the attractions the city has to offer, it’s silly not to take advantage of them! Do a day in Epcot, eating and drinking around the world at your leisure. It’s recommended to get an annual pass to get more bang for your buck, since you live in the area. Of course, there are special ticket just for Florida residents as well.
If you’re feeling a bit adventurous, hop into a harness and zipline at Gatorland. You’ll zoom above the gators below, and once you’re done, you can walk down the whole swamp. You can also choose to purchase airboat rides through the boggy creek — a quintessential Florida activity!
5. Old Town Cruise Nites Classic Car Show
Celebration is a one of a kind town just near the parks in Orlando. It was originally created by Walt Disney, which means it’s full of character in an almost unreal way. For classic car lovers, there is a fantastic show Old Town has parading through the streets on Saturday nights. Old Town also has plenty of quaint shops if you’ve got the missus in tow.
6. Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! Odditorium
It’s always fascinating to see what Ripley has gathered for curious minds to explore. At the Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! Odditorium in Orlando, you’ll see interesting artifacts like a real shrunken head. If you’ve never been, you’ve got to see this stuff.
7. Fantasy of Flight
A must for aviation enthusiasts like our airpark residents, head over to nearby Polk City for the Fantasy of Flight aircraft collection. The venu houses the world’s largest private collection of vintage aircraft and over 100 of the biggest accomplishments in the industry on display.
