10 THINGS TO DO IN ORLANDO FLORIDA BESIDES DISNEY WORLD
 

Yes, Orlando  is home to Mickey Mouse!  Disney World is the most visited theme park on  Earth, and truly is a magical place.  If you haven’t been, I recommend  going, especially if you have little kids. 
The point of this post is to  highlight that the city of Orlando features tons of non-Disney things to see and do.  I’m lucky enough to be married to a Florida local, so understanding  the city and dodging the annoying toll booths is much easier for me.   Things to do in Orlando Florida Before you complain, yes, not  everything on this list is actually in Orlando, but the things that aren’t are  all nearby.  Orlando is one of the cheapest places in the United States to  fly to, and Florida is one of the cheapest places for rental cars, so hopefully  you will be able to get out and see these things. 

1. See Celebration  Things to do in Orlando Florida 
Many people do not know that Walt  Disney helped create a master planned community named Celebration.  This  community sits 5 miles away from the Disney resorts, and is literally supposed  to be, and basically is Pleasantville, or the perfect community utopia.   The houses are all meticulously coordinated in unique colors, lawns are  perfectly manicured, the downtown is perfectly clean, and pretty fountains flow endlessly. 
While not somewhere I want to spend a lot of time, it is definitely worth an afternoon stroll.

2. Amusement Parks
Galore Other than Disney, there are a bunch of other amusement parks in  the Orlando area.  Some of the most popular the ones owned by Universal,  Universal Studios, and Islands of Adventure.  These are the ones where you  can see Harry Potter World.  Also, Orlando has a SeaWorld, Legoland, and  even a Bible themed amusement park named the Holy Land.



3. Cocoa  Beach 
Even though Orlando is in the center of the state, Florida is  still a pretty skinny state, meaning the beach is only an hour away.  Cocoa  Beach is a great place to dip your toes in the sand, and experience the Atlantic  Ocean.  Cocoa Beach is also known for great surfing.


4. Airboat Tour to See Alligators 
With Orlando being located in the center of the state, it has immediate access to pure swampland.  The best way to experience these swamps is on an airboat tour.  The best tours will literally show you hundreds of alligators, and make you feel like you are on an live action filming of the show “Swamp People”.

 

6. Orlando Watersports Complex 
The Orlando Watersports Complex is hard to describe, but is another can’t miss.  Basically, it allows you to waterski or wakeboard without the boat, and without having to wait for all your friends to take their turns.  Cables are suspended above a lake, and tow ropes constantly circle along these cables pulling skiers around the lake.  Not only does the park offer a lake for beginners to learn to ski, but there is another cable park with  jumps and ramps for the more experienced skier or boarder.



7. Shopping 
There seems to be a million shopping malls in Orlando to cater  to any kind of shopping.  My favorite mall is the Mall at Millenia, which  features many of the upscale higher end shops that I can’t afford anything at,  yet love to look at.  There are also a number of outlet malls where the  bargain shopper can find great deal after great deal. 

8. Cape  Canaveral, home of the Kennedy Space Center 
What is not to love about  the site where rocket ships take off from? This is the perfect place to let your  inner space nerd out! The Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex is the perfect  place to see rockets, launch pads, and learn history of the space program.   Trust me, this place is cool. 

9. Shows 
Given that Orlando is  such a tourist mecca, there are many Las Vegas style shows that have taken up  residence in the city.   My favorites are La Nouba by Cirque du Soleil  and Blue Man Group.  Also, there are lots of theater opportunities  available.
 
10. Golf 
Golf isn’t my thing, but for those of you  that love golf, Orlando is the city for you.  There are a bazillion courses  around, which must be why Tiger Woods calls Orlando home.
