Staff Favorite: Trio Under the Palms

"There is no better beach vacation location for families other than Cinnamon Shore!! We spend our days on the beach or at one of the many pools on site. Our kids love the s’more fireside nights, running around on the great lawn, enjoying sno-cones from the treat truck and playing yard games until sunset. Each year there is something new to explore and do together. The days are just longer and sweeter here 😊"--Allison M.
