The best summer vacation I ever had was when my parents took me to Miami, Florida and took all of our family members with us. It was one of the most memorable experiences of my life. What made it even more memorable was the fact that it was my very first time on an airplane. I cannot recall another time in my life when I experienced so much happiness.
That trip to Miami, Florida was the first time all of my family and I actually did something all together. all of us spending a few days together brought me closer than ever to all of my uncles, cousins, and grandparents. I was very excited because it was going to be my first time ever in Florida and I was going to go with all of my family members which made it even better. I remember the day we left we had all the bags packed and headed to the airport. We left from my hometown Charlotte, North Carolina. It was going to be a two-hour flight. which was not that long to me.
I can still remember how excited I was before the take-off, I wanted to be there already. To me, it felt like forever sitting in the plane waiting for take off. Just all the anticipation and excitement that was inside of me had just made the wait feel even longer for me. Finally, I heard the pilots
say prepare for take off. When I heard those words I was so thrilled I could hardly contain myself. That rush I got once the plane took off was something that I had never experienced before. I remember I was a little bit scared at first but after a couple minutes into the flight I had calmed down. The plane ride was about two and a half hours long and I enjoyed every second of it. Little did I know that the fun didn't start there.
After we got off the airplane, we rented a car and drove to our condo that we had rented. We finally got there and then we all went out to eat dinner. We went to some Italian restaurant and believe me it was good. To this day, I have never tasted anything as good as the pasta I had that day. I ate so much that I felt like my stomach was about to blow up. once I got back to my room I was so exhausted. I just passed out and went to bed. I had a long and exciting day ahead of me. I was going to visit all around Miami and I couldn't wait.
The next day I woke up, got ready. All of my family got together and headed down to the beach. That day we were at the beach all day cooking on the grill and swimming around having fun. The beach was really beautiful and relaxing for me so I spent most of the days at the beach hanging out swimming around with my family. The whole week we were there we Visited many different places around Miami.
One of the places we went to was Jungle island in Miami. It was fun and very exciting for me. There were many exotic and different animals from around the world. I was very grateful that I had the opportunity to view all these rare animals. It also had a giant waterpark inside. I had a lot of fun playing around with my cousins in the waterpark.
I also went to The frost museum of science in Miami. The Museum was really interesting to me it had an enormous aquarium with many different ocean species. my favorite fish I saw was the shark they have. The planetarium the museum has is extraordinary it was really something new to me.
My last day there was my favorite one. on the last day, I went down to South beach and rode jet skis. Riding the jet skis were my favorite moment out of all the trip. Riding the jet skis was a really new experience for me but I had a lot of run riding them. I spent a couple of hours riding around with my family. I even got to ride around Biscayne Bay and saw a lot of celebrities houses.
The whole week we were there we went to many different places and did a lot of fun activities with my family. This vacation I had was the best for me. it was also the most memorable to me because it was one of the only vacations we have all went together. I also had many new experiences during the trip. It was a first time thing on a lot of things I did during the trip like first time visiting Miami, first time riding a plane, and first time riding a jet ski. During this trip, I got a closer connection with my family members. During those days I realized nothing is better than spending time with family. I always had a good summer vacation but this one was unforgettable to me.
