Day One - Our first day together is spent traveling to the Lake Wales area which is about 1 hour south of Orlando, in central Florida. One of the fun and unique attractions we'll experience on our journey is Spook Hill. Spook Hill is a gravity hill (an optical illusion where cars (or buses) appear to roll up the spooky hill) in Lake Wales, Florida. Yes, we will be attempting this with the bus. The attraction is adjacent to Spook Hill Elementary School that adopted Casper The Friendly Ghost as their school mascot. This attraction is also in close-proximity to Bok Tower. This all makes for a lovely ride through the countryside. Before too long we arrive at Westgate River Ranch. The "Dude" Ranch is nestled among 1700 beautiful acres in Central Florida, with well-appointed ranch-style lodging accommodations, endless amenities and activities. Our scheduled activities today include: The Dinner Hayride, enjoy a country dinner (included) at the East Corral complete with smores at the campfire for dessert. Experience an old-fashioned, tractor-pulled Hayride at Westgate River Ranch that takes you into the beautiful, 7,000-acre KICCO Wildlife Management Area (KICCO stands for "Kissimmee Island Cattle Company), which runs along the Kissimmee River. View wildlife as you are entertained by the talents of a singing cowboy who belts out such classics as Jimmy Buffett's "Margaritaville" and Merle Haggard's "Okie from Muskogee". As its name implies, the KICCO Wildlife Management Area is home to abundant wildlife such as white-tailed deer, bald eagles, wild hogs, hawks, sandhill cranes, wading birds, alligators and wild turkeys. Next, we'll enjoy a Rodeo! Every Saturday night the on-property arena comes alive with the famous River Ranch Rodeo. Cowpokes and bronco busters assemble here to provide guests with a real rodeo complete with bull riding, barrel racing and trick riding. This is an exciting evening of rodeo action you don't want to miss! The ranch also offers many optional activities for the adventurer in you. Activities include: Horseback Trail Rides, Swamp Buggy Rides, Boat Rentals and Fishing at the River or Lake, trap or skeet shooting, a petting farm and miniature golf. (Additional fees apply for these activities) After a great day of ranch fun you'll be ready to "hit the hay". Tomorrow is another day of fun.

Day Two - An abundant breakfast is yours to enjoy Sunday morning. After breakfast you may want to enjoy the scenic Airboat Ride (optional, fee applies). You should see plenty of wildlife during a 45-minute airboat ride on Lake Kissimmee. We'll depart the ranch early afternoon and we'll make a stop along the way at Davidson of Dundee. Davidson of Dundee began in the early 1900's with T.W. Davidson's orange, grapefruit and tangerine groves located near Dundee, Florida. Today, Davidson of Dundee is still growing those juicy citrus fruits; and they now offer one-of-a-kind marmalades, jellies, coconut patties, and chocolates as well. But if you want to take part in a true Central Florida confectionary tradition, you must- try their citrus delicacy candies! All their candies and marmalades are slow cooked in copper kettles, one batch at a time - the traditional way. Best of all, the ingredients used are native to Florida, including citrus fruits grown in their own groves and pure cane sugar from the everglades. Davidson of Dundee's sweet treats are so popular when citrus-season hits, they make 4,000 lbs of marmalade and 3,600 lbs of candies every day. Davidson's has been featured on the Food Network and many other national shows recognizing America's most unique culinary treasures. It's not too soon to shop for the holidays and other special occasions. We will continue toward home, making appropriate stops along the way.
