Often, we return from our vacations so exhausted from days packed with exciting itineraries that we feel like we need a vacation from our vacation. This time check into one of our hotels in Apopka, FL and take things easy. Give your mind space to wander and perhaps ponder the city's unusual name. Apopka derives from a Seminole word meaning "potato eating place," apparently in reference to the numerous tubers sprouting from the rich lake soil. So go ahead and make your way here. After all this place has all the makings of a relaxing ex-spud-ition...
Settle into one of our hotels near Apopka, FL, and slather on some sunscreen before you head out. Hopefully you rented one of the larger Apopka rental cars, because the next stop is picking up a rental tube for the afternoon. In nearby Kelly Park, a natural lazy river wends its way through the tropical verdure, affording visitors the chance to lounge on tubes and drift the day away as they meander over the clear waters. Travelers often feel compelled to fill their vacations with nonstop activity and sightseeing, but the most meaningful trips sometimes arise from days spent doing...well, nothing. As philosopher Mortimer Adler once said, "You have to allow a certain amount of time in which you are doing nothing in order to have things occur to you, to let your mind think." Float through the Floridian foliage for a few hours, and give your mind a real rest. Who knows what thoughts might come? Perhaps you need a little more time to let those ideas marinate as you sleep peacefully in one of our Apopka hotels, but by the end of your journey, new insights into your life path are all but guaranteed.
Of course, none of this is to denigrate the value of action-packed vacations, and perhaps the best complement to a slow, thoughtful afternoon in Apopka is a side trip to the bustling hub of Daytona Beach, Florida. Choose one of Travelocity's Daytona Beach hotels and spend a lively evening at the racetrack, or of course, you can always continue to explore the silence of the mind while lying on the beach.
