Orlando is the ultimate family vacation destination. Endless theme parks provide weeks of fun while acres of rivers, lakes and nearby forests appeal to the outdoorsy. Disney World, Epcot and SeaWorld Orlando fulfill every theme park fantasy. And the awesome LEGOLAND Florida is less than an hour away.
Each theme park has at least a day's (if not three!) worth of rides and activities to experience. Brave the Dragon Challenge roller coaster or enjoy a warm glass of Butterbeer at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Universal Studios Florida. Splash around at Wet ‘n Wild Water Park, swim with dolphins at Discovery Cove or get up close to fierce alligators at Gatorland.
For a more natural adventure, paddle a canoe down the Wekiva River and check out the diverse plant life, native birds, river otters and maybe even a wild alligator. Or tour the Kennedy Space Center, just an hour away, where you can see the Space Shuttle Atlantis, experience a simulated shuttle launch and even meet an astronaut.
