Orlando is full of every attraction possible but some of the ones we prefer include:
Disney’s World Resort: The house is conveniently located just 15 minutes drive away (with all of the Disney attractions), via the US192.
Universal Studios, one of the other major theme parks in the area is 25 minutes away by car and is an ideal day out for all of the family.
Boggy Creek Airboat Rides – a great one off activity for all the family and a chance to see alligators and other wildlife in their natural environment. This is just 10 minutes away from the house towards Poinciana.
Wet’N’Wild is another good day out just 20 minutes from the house on International Drive.
Cocoa Beach, a great beach for body boarding is 1 hour away and the nearest beach is Melbourne, just 45 minutes away by car using the US 192
Hidden away at Buena Vista is a good Jet Ski attraction where you can hire jet skis, do “donuting” or learn to water ski.
Busch Gardens at Tampa is worth the trip (about 2 hours by car) but it has a good blend of rides and wildlife.
Treasure Island on the Gulf Coast and St Pete’s Pass are also a good day out where you can go sea fishing or search for dolphins in the wild.
During basketball season the Orlando Magic games are excellent value.
