You've visited the major parks, now what ??

You've visited the headline Orlando attractions:-
Disneys' Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Hollywood Studios, Animal Kingdom, Pleasure Island, Downtown Disney & Boardwalk;
Universals' Studios, Islands of Adventure & Citywalk;
Sea World & Discovery Cove.
You've been well washed at Blizzard Beach, Typhoon Lagoon, Aquatica & Wet & Wild.
You've shopped at Prime Outlets, The Florida Mall, Mall at Millennia & the Mercado, explored International Drive from end to end, been to evening dinner-shows at Medieval Times, Arabian Nights, Pirates, Sleuths & Sea worlds' Mahahiki Luau.
Gone further afield on daytrips to Kennedy Space Centre, Silver Springs, Busch Gardens & Adventure Island (both at Tampa) & visited the Gulf Coast beaches to wind down and collect shells.
But still need to fill that odd half-day!

There are many things in & around Orlando not quite so well advertised as Disney or Universal but, never the less, well worth a visit.
Try any of these links for further information...

Try Gatorland on South Orange Blossom Trail to meet some of the original inhabitants of the locality !

The Holy Land Experience will take you back to the time of Christ in an interactive way...

If you're up to a 6am (or earlier !) start, you could try Orange Blossom Balloons by Days Inn on the 192 for a champagne balloon flight over the area.

Or maybe a helicopter flight's more your thing ?? Sunshine Helicopter Tours at Mile Marker 11 on the 192 are local...

For tinys, Green Meadows Petting Farm on Poinciana Blvd. is the place to meet all things fluffy and furry.

We won't even try to list the many & varied themed miniature golf courses dotted up & down the 192 and also along International Drive..... Try them all !!!!

These locations are all within a few minutes drive of our villa & are only an idea for alternative venues - there are many others !

Further afield are Mount Dora, a small 'olde worlde' town with some interesting antique shops, Winter Park with the Tiffany glass museum, boat rides and Squirrel park or St. Augustine, reputedly the oldest city in America, originally settled by the Spanish (though the Indians got there first!)....

If you fancy an alternative trip to the seaside, you could try Fort De Soto Park. Hire a 2 or 4 seat 'bike & explore...

Visit Orlando attractions website for a very much more comprehensive list......
