What Else Can You Do in Orlando?
One thing that doesn’t spring immediately to mind when you think about a vacation in Orlando is going to museums. That’s something we think should change, however, because there are some truly great spots to be found if you’re willing to do a bit of searching. Luckily for you, we’re here to help. Don’t consider this list exhaustive, but instead view it as a small sample of what’s out there if you’re willing to do a bit of looking.
If you’re in the market for a truly one of a kind experience on your vacation, the Skeletons: Museum of Osteology ought to be right up your alley. We know what you’re thinking--a skeleton museum sounds a bit weird. Okay, we’ll grant you that one, but believe us when we say that this is an absolutely fascinating look at how animals are different. And if you really think about it, aren’t fossils skeletons as well? You wouldn’t hesitate to take a look at the skeleton of a brontosaurus, so why not take a look at over five hundred different skeletons at this wonderfully charming museum?
With Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum and Ripley’s Believe it or Not also available to visit in Orlando, you can get your fair share or odd and interesting information. Or, of course, you could visit the Orlando Museum of Art of the Orange County Regional History Center if you prefer something a bit more traditional.
There’s one thing that every great vacation has in common--an abundance of awesome food. Luckily for you, whether you’re on a vacation with your significant other or you have the whole family in tow, there’s plenty of great food to try in Orlando.
Everybody loves pizza and the pies you’ll eat at Antonella’s Pizzeria won’t disappoint. Try the Buffalo Chicken pizza if you’re in the mood for something a little different or go for a classic like the Spinach and Tomato pizza. No matter what you get, we’re sure you’ll leave smiling and satisfied. Highlights of the menu include the Antonella’s Calzone (which contains mozzarella, ricotta, pepperoni, sausage, mushrooms, onions, and red peppers), the Phillaboli Stromboli (containing mozzarella cheese, sliced steak, mushrooms, onions, and red peppers, or the Fra Diavolo which includes your choice of spaghetti, ziti, or fettucine and comes nice and spicy.
Another great place to try is the Provisions and Buzz Steak Company. Located on New Broad Street in Orlando, this restaurant is serving up a fun menu that’s sure to have something for everyone. Whether you prefer their Crab Cake & Fried Green Tomatoes, Lobster Bites, or their scratch made Creamy Tomato Basil Soup, you’re in for a treat. Highlights of the menu include their selection of hand cut steaks and chops as well as the Smoked Country Meatloaf.
Enjoy the Water
Is there a better place to get lost in a great book than on the beach? Whether you’re starting a new series or reading another book by your favorite author, there’s just something special about relaxing on a beach, listening to the waves and the laughter, and enjoying a book.
But perhaps you’d enjoy something a bit more exciting? Not to worry, because there’s plenty of opportunities for that in Orlando! Whether you’d prefer to have a deep sea fishing adventure or charter a fishing boat and do a bit of relaxing with your buddies. Either way, you’re sure to have the time of your life!
Paddleboarding is also growing in popularity and it’s a great activity to take part in whether you’re hoping to get some exercise or just have some fun with your friends. A number of companies offer paddleboard rentals and some even teach classes detailing all of the techniques you’ll need in order to be a pro in no time at all.
For an experience that’s wholly unique, why not try a bioluminescence kayaking journey? According to Adventures in Florida, “each bioluminescent dinoflagellate flashes only a fraction of a second when disturbed by water movement, but its high concentrations in the warm Indian River water create beautiful bluish-white trails of light caused by swimming fish and paddling kayakers,” ensuring that you have an experience that will stick with you for years to come. It’s a beautiful way to start or end the perfect vacation, don’t you think?
