Having the time of your life in Orlando

“Wherever you go, go with all your heart.” ~ Confucius

I live in Florida–precisely Orlando! One of the top destinations for families, couples, lone travelers and everyone in between. So, what is there to do in Florida besides Disney World? Most everyone, when they hear Florida, think about Disney World and Mickey Mouse. And that’s great, but there are tons of things to do in Florida other than Disney World.

Kennedy Space Center

For starters, the Kennedy Space Center in Cocoa Beach, Florida. Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex offers tours and attractions relating back to the beginning of space exploration until today. Do you want to know what it feels like to be an astronaut or be up close and personal to a spacecraft? This is your opportunity to experience it. Visit Kennedy Space Center and book your visit.

Lakeridge Winery & Vineyards

Would you enjoy wine tasting in a real vineyard? We have that too! Lakeridge Winery, in 19239 U.S. 27 North, Clermont; is home of 127-acres of grapevines and Florida’s largest premium winery. Lakeridge Winery opened its doors in 1989 and offers winery tours and wine tasting. For tours and wine, tasting times, visit Lakeridge Winery.

Beaches, beaches and more beaches

Cocoa Beach, Daytona Beach, St. Pete, St. Augustine, Vero Beach, Port Canaveral, New Smyrna, Sanibel Island, Clearwater-too many to mention them all. Wherever you visit in Florida, either on the east or west coast, you will most likely encounter a beach nearby or as far as only a 2-hour drive!

Lou Gardens

Relax in a garden in the city. Harry P. Leu Gardens in 1920 N. Forest avenue in Orlando, is a 50-acre botanical garden for all those nature lovers visiting Orlando. It opens daily from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. You’ll find a wide range of tropical plants, butterflies, fruit and vegetable gardens, and museums too. You will definitely feel relaxed after this experience.

Sights and Landmarks

Visit Orlando’s International Drive where you will find the famous Ripley’s Believe It Or Not Museum. Test your mind at Wonder Works Indoor Amusement Park. Interact with your favorite celebrity at the Madame Tussauds Wax Museum. Ride the newest ICON Orlando 360 for a splendid 400 ft prime view of the city. Or try your luck escaping from one of the many Escape Room games in Orlando! And this is just a few of them.
