Having a hard time finding places where everyone in the entire family will enjoy? Don't worry, I've been there, and so have lots of others. It can be difficult trying to figure out what places will appeal to both kids and parents (and maybe even grandparents!), but these five places offer a ton of fun for everyone. From first-timers to experienced outdoor families, you are sure to find the perfect experience. Check 'em out:


Florida EcoSafaris at Forever Florida - A zipline roller coaster? Say what? Yep, at Florida EcoSafaris you'll find the first zipline roller coaster in the country. But wait, that's just the start. There's the Cypress Canopy Cycle, Peregrine Plunge, the Rattlesnake and lots more zipline-based action. For those who like their feet on the ground, take a safari by coach or horseback. There are even overnight horseback safaris, just in case you want to extend the fun. www.floridaecosafaris.com


Adventures Unlimited - The name pretty much says it all. At Adventures Unlimited, you can choose from lots of different river trips (paddle or tube), camping, or zipline adventures. This place can hook you up with some incredible experiences. If you want to have the wildest family reunion ever, Adventures Unlimited has the ability to host large groups. Bring all the cousins. www.adventuresunlimited.com


Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort - Yep, the camping at Walt Disney World is good stuff. Some family members might want to hit up the parks, while others want to kick back at camp. Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort offers cabins, tent and RV sites – all are top notch. Several pools, a marina, horseback rides, walking trails are just a few of the long list of things to do without having to leave the resort. Believe me, you may never want to go home. www.disneyworld.disney.go.com/resorts/campsites-at-fort-wilderness-resort


Weeki Wachee State Park - You didn't think I'd make a list without including one of Florida's fab state parks, did you? Of course not, and that's because Florida State Parks rule. Depending on what type of adventure you are looking for, chances are you can find it at a state park. Weeki Wachee State Park is world famous for the Mermaids, but the spring, river cruise and watersides are equally cool. Schedule in a few hours for a scenic kayak trip down the Weeki Wachee River, one of the finest paddle trips in the state. www.floridastateparks.org/weekiwachee


Lion Country Safari - If you are near West Palm Beach, you owe it to yourself to head out to Lion Country Safari. The self-guided auto tour is super fun (make sure to listen to the audio CD, too), and the walk-through park is just as cool. Did someone say cool? Kids will definitely enjoy the Safari Splash and Water Wars areas of the park, and I'm sure that everyone will have a great time on the paddle boats and Safari Queen boat tour. If one day isn't enough, plan to stay at the KOA Campground, which is right next door. Cabins, tent and RV sites are available. www.lioncountrysafari.com
