The Bear’s Den Resort Orlando Blog Why You Should Visit The Bear’s Den Before School Starts


Taking a vacation at the end of the summer before school starts can be the perfect time to visit The Bear’s Den Resort Orlando. Not only are the sunshine and warm temperatures plentiful, the crowds and waits are less at all your favorite attractions and activities. What better time than August to visit The Bear’s Den Resort Orlando to enjoy everything that makes our resort so special?

1. Golf with a Pro

The Bear’s Den Resort Orlando is one of the only places in the world where you can play signature PGA golf courses designed by three of golf’s greatest legends: Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer and Tom Watson. Make the day extra special with a golf experience that includes a lesson and then playing one of these courses with a pro. The small student to teacher ratio makes our National Golf School the best around.

2. Water Park

Our amazing water park truly has something for everyone in your family. With spraying water cannons, a lazy river, four waterfalls, kid-pleasing twisty water slides, rope bridges, a zero-entry pool and a giant water bucket that empties every few minutes, our water park doesn’t disappoint. Take a break from the action and relax in a beautiful resort pool with private cabanas and poolside service.
