Florida’s Next Theme Park Might Be A….Snow Park?!?!?!

When you think of Florida as a tourist destination, you imagine a lot of things – sunshine, beaches, the theme parks of the Orlando area, the history of St. Augustine, the laid back feelings of Key West, etc. But there’s one thing most people don’t think about.
