Some Tips on a Orlando Vacation

Jul 24, 2008
Although Orlando, Florida is probably the theme park capital of the world, there are plenty of other attractions to keep visitors occupied if they are not that keen on non-stop roller coaster rides. Orlando Town is your destination for museums, galleries, historical places, edifices, flea markets, churches and much more.

It is a great place to visit even if you only have shopping on your mind as the area is full of beautiful shopping malls, restaurants and shops of every type. Of course this article can only brush the surface of what you can see and do on an Orlando vacation but there is so much more than just theme parks that it would be a shame not to mention them.

The Central Florida Zoo for instance only opened back in 1975 and was owned by the Sanford Fire Department prior to that but is the home to over four hundred animals and is well worth a visit. The Central Florida Zoological Park and Botanical Gardens is dedicated to preserving the beauty and wonder of animals and their habitats and committed to sharing their knowledge, engaging visitors, and celebrating the natural world.

Then there are the works of Louis Tiffany whose famous collection is housed here in the Morse Museum of American Art. The famous chapel interior commissioned for the World's Columbian Exhibition back in 1893 is also her along with many Tiffany jewelry, art and leaded glass, ornaments and clayware.

Vibrant Night life is also popular when you have your Orlando vacation with music and dance available at some of the favorite venues which include Downtown Disney's Pleasure Island, Universal Citywalk, and other clubs. Surprisingly, Orlando is not just about fun for the children and adults are very well catered for in this entertainment town.

If you are more technology and science minded then a trip to the Orlando Science Center will be a must as is a huge complex incorporating 10 halls with exhibitions ranging from the Florida Everglades to the plains of Mars. If your preference is in railways then the International Trolley and Train Museum on International drive will be a pleasant surprise with 14 trains running continuously and a mountain range with three waterfalls in a space of about 4,000 square feet.

If you have seen the Titanic-ship of Dreams film then you will enjoy the exhibition along International Drive that tells the story using large sets and depictions from the ship as a background, to the often eerie tale. Lake Eola Park on the other hand has a pleasant 43 acres to stroll around and relax or perhaps some boating on the lake.

Of course how could you possibly visit Orlando and not go to at least one theme park and for those of you who are unsure; Disney has four main theme parks, not including the water parks, and Universal has it's own versions but the beautiful Seaworld should also not be forgotten either. Whatever you want from a vacation, Orlando can supply and you don't have to work hard at finding it either but next time your there, try some of the other attractions, you won't be disappointed.
