Take a trip to magical Orlando and you won’t be disappointed! This city has rightly earned its theme park-centric nickname, with its numerous action-packed parks filled with costumed characters, roller coasters, and other thrills!
There’s so much to explore in Orlando, it’s hard to know just where to begin! How about with one of Orlando’s oldest attractions? Gatorland has been a popular destination for families since 1949, and there’s a reason for this longevity! One part wildlife refuge, one part theme park, Gatorland is affordably priced family fun that truly has it all. Explore over 100 acres and see thousands of alligators and crocodiles! But that’s not all. Gatorland also sports an aviary, a breeding marsh, an observation tower, petting zoo, splash pad for the kids, and Florida panthers! Get up close and personal with Florida’s most famous reptile, and even see a gator wrestling show! So, where does the theme park aspect come in? Gatorland also offers zip line rides and off-roading and is perfect for kids!
Can’t get enough animals? Then you’re definitely going to want the Central Florida Zoo on your list of Orlando destinations! With over 500 animals from all over the world, the Central Florida Zoo is only about a half-hour away from Orlando but feels like you’re taking a little safari to every corner of the globe. Feed a giraffe, check out the reptile house, take your kids to the children’s zoo or splash playground. Experience it all at the Central Florida Zoo!
