Lazy summer days make a great opportunity for bringing out the family to find new and unique ways to enjoy the Port Orange area! Whether you’re local or living it up on a weekend getaway, there’s plenty of fun activities to check out. As you plan your itinerary, read some of our favorite local suggestions for family fun (and an amazing Port Orange breakfast) below!
Rent a Kayak or Canoe
Florida is home to some truly incredible wildlife – and what better way to enjoy it than getting up close and personal out on the water? Port Orange is home to Cracker Creek – one of our local area’s most exciting spots to rent a canoe or kayak to take out on the water. Or, if the added workout isn’t quite your speed, never fear – you can also kick back and learn about the area’s eco-history on a pontoon boat tour!
Plan a Family Camping Trip
Here’s another idea for enjoying nature – bring your loved ones out for a night sleeping amongst the trees and fresh air! Whether making a weekend trip or looking for a fresh setting for a staycation, the Port Orange area has opportunities for camping in any style you please. For example, Nova Campground offers plenty of options – like lots for tents, campers, or RVs, as well as rental options like cabins for the extra comfort that bathrooms and furnishings can provide. Your campsite might just be the perfect home base to enjoy the beach or other fun local activities!
Hit the Go-Kart Track
How can you best add a little action to your weekend fun? Go-karting can be the perfect fit to get in touch with our area’s racing history while also making for a fun activity the whole family can enjoy. Go-Kart City in Port Orange is the perfect spot. Here, you can race to the finish on a quarter-mile long go-kart track, as well as round out the afternoon with a game of mini golf or a turn at the batting cages!
Have a Delicious Brunch
If all those activities find you working up a hearty appetite and looking for an amazing breakfast diner, we have good news. Peach Valley Café is one of the best breakfast restaurants Port Orange loves, where you can enjoy all our homemade, fan-favorite, best brunch options. Join us for delicious Buttermilk Pancakes fresh off the griddle, tasty and savory skillets, fresh fruit options like our RW&B Fruit Bowl, and even selections for soups, salads, and sandwiches to round out a perfect early-afternoon meal. We think that brunch is the most important meal of the day – and it’s the best way to energize and face all the summer excitement ahead.
