Things To Do In Orlando

When it comes to things to do in Orlando, one might be better off trying to find the things you can’t do in Orlando.  There is so much going on here that you might need to schedule repeat vacations just to begin to fulfill the list of things to do in Orlando. 

If you like to golf, then try playing on the same courses as Tiger Woods and the numerous other PGA professionals who have taken up residence in the area. It should not be under-stressed how big golf is in Orlando.  For golf aficionados, the opportunities here move to the top of your list of things to do see in Orlando.  There may be nowhere else in the world where golf is so prolific as it is here, and in Orlando you’ll get to choose from a ton of great Florida golf courses with some designed by legends of the game, including Palmer, Watson, Nicklaus and Norman.  You can even get help with your swing from Annika Sorenstam’s coach at the Annika Academy at the Ginn Reunion Resort.  Or get into a different swing with lessons from top tennis instructors and return home with a killer serve that will have your friends begging for a lesson from you.

If you want that rush associated with trying something new and totally different, take an airboat trip through the headwaters of the Florida everglades, or take a look down from above in a Orlando hot air balloon ride or helicopter trip. 

You can even take to the skies on your first hangliding experience at Wallaby Ranch Hang Gliding Flight Park.  Museum buffs can enjoy the fine exhibits at the Orlando Art Museum.  Try some of the free things to do in Orlando Florida as well and give that wallet a bit of a rest.

Between Universal Studios Resort, Walt Disney World Resort and Sea World, the whole family will find non-stop entertainment and attractions you’d be hard pressed to find anywhere else.  Everyone is a kid when it comes to these theme-parks, and trying to figure out which ride to ride next, or which show to take in later becomes your only worry.  That is unless you eat too much before taking to some of the roller coasters.  And at Orlando’s famed theme parks you can see fireworks every night, making for the perfect culmination of another day of family fun.  Also, if you are ever in need of some cooling off while wearing a permanent smile, then add one of the area waterparks to your things to do in Orlando list.  Try picking up discounted Universal tickets where you’ll get unlimited access to 2 theme parks for just $85.99.

Dining is one of the top things to do in Orlando, and for good reason.  Here, you can have great eats for every meal of the day, and in-between.  Families can relax at theme restaurants and dine in the company of princesses or animated TV stars.  Parents, and family alike, can upscale it a bit for a luxury meal at one of the various celebrity chef restaurants.  In Orlando you can try foods from all over the world and stop for an array of treats between meals.  And, when you decide you need to take a break from all the action and area attractions, be sure to relax both body and mind at one of Orlando’s 16 destination spas.  It’s a good way to make sure you return from your vacation even that much more fresh.

Things to do see in Orlando can start to add up money-wise, but there are some free things to do in Orlando Florida as well.  Take a family stroll at Disney’s Boardwalk and enjoy the water views and street entertainers, or go hiking in Ocala National Forest.  The terrain is easy and you’ll get a real sense of natural Florida. 

One of the free things to do in Orlando Florida is to visit the Harry P. Leu Gardens Mondays from 9 a.m. to noon. 

Lake Eola Park is another welcome refuge set on 43 acres where you’ll find a walking path, fountains, and a playground.  Kids will enjoy feeding the swans and there are excellent views of the city. 

Finally, head to the Disney town of Celebration where you’ll find picturesque homes, an interactive fountain where kids can play, and a lagoon where you can look for alligators and turtles. 

These are just some of the possibilities for all the free things to do in Orlando. It truly is a vacation destination most worthy of a visit.
