Summerblast 2016

With Summertime officially kicking off in couple of weeks, it’s time to planning the Summer fun! I am so excited to share with you, Summerblast at Hilton Bonnet Creek! I have taken part of this last year and it was SPECTACULAR!

What is Summerblast?

It’s from May 27 to September 5. FULL of fun: golfing, pool hanging, sample exquisite foods, movies, mermaids and ducks!

It has 2 pool complexes and a three-acre lazy river, twelve dining outlets, luxurious spa services at the neighboring Waldorf Astoria Spa and golf on the 18-hole Rees Jones-designed course. I mean, I can’t think of a better place to relax after spending all day at the theme parks(which they are about 1 or 2 miles away).
