2008 News Archive - Holidays - Florida getaway for football star
08 01 2007
Florida has long appealed to both sun-seekers and those looking for family entertainment and now a famous face from the football season has added his name to the state's long list of fans.
Wayne Rooney has reportedly snapped up a holiday apartment in the sunshine state to allow he and fiancée Coleen McLoughlin to get away more easily.
It is believed that one of the main reasons behind the couple's choice of property is its proximity to theme parks Disney World, SeaWorld and Universal Studios as it is located in Harbor Point, Port Charlotte.
The holiday villa will allow the couple to take Coleen's sister Rose, who suffers from Rett Syndrome and is unable to move unaided, to visit the area's fun parks while offering all the comfort and facilities of home.
And for Asda model Coleen, the apartment's position is also ideal. Having transformed herself into a style icon in recent years, shopping is clearly a favourite past-time - and Port Charlotte offers a variety of shops and services sure to cater to Coleen's needs.
And as photographs of the 20-year-old currently enjoying a new year break in Dubai prove, Coleen also enjoys soaking up the rays - although the shots printed in the Sun show she is slightly pink round the edges.
Provided she ensures she has slapped enough sun cream on, Coleen is bound to enjoy the region's sub-tropical climate and Port Charlotte Beach - which is bordered by a shady and fragrant pine and mangrove wood.
