Who is ready for a vacation? If you did not raise your hand or shout “ME!” at your computer (or phone) screen, then you are obviously lying. Everybody is ready for a vacation, and that is a fact.
There are so many reasons to go on a vacation, whether it is to take a much-needed break, experience new adventures, or to simply have fun. As beach people, our favorite vacation destination is Destin & South Walton - collectively known as the Emerald Coast. Yeah, the sugary beaches are pretty cool, floating in the warm water is a dream, and the sunsets are incredible. But do you know what adds to the fun?
We know what you are thinking – are pool floats really that awesome? Duh! Basking under the summer sun while floating on a fun float is one of the best ways to spend a vacation day. Many of our rental homes and condos have access to freshwater, including private, community, and resort pools. So, when you stay, be sure to bring along your favorite float.
Don’t own a float? No problem. Check out this list of some of the 10 craziest pool floats we have found. From unicorns to tacos to Disney characters, there are plenty of novelty floats that will get you in the vacation mood.
