I discovered a self-walking tour book at the library for areas within driving distances from where I live. By spending my weekends on these tours, it makes exercising fun as I follow the history and paths of these tours.

I keep my interest in walking by taking photos of interesting things I find, collecting coke caps for friends for redemption, cleaning a block or trail of trash I find, taking a tour book or narrated walking tour.
I love going to the Disney theme parks, and I find these to be versions of a vacation planned around "exercise." There is no good way to enjoy the parks without doing as much walking as you would on a walking tour vacation, especially in Florida where the walking is intensified. Throw in some afternoon swimming at the hotel pool, and you need not use that hotel workout room to burn calories!
All of the Disney parks now offer healthy options at pretty much every restaurant, so it is fairly simple to get nutritious food that doesn't negate all that activity you'll be getting!
