Explore Orlando.

Get excited about exploring Orlando both inside and outside of the theme parks! While there are several fantastic, world-class theme parks to enjoy, there’s no doubt that the full Orlando experience lies outside of the parks as well. During your trip, take some time to explore international cuisine in downtown Orlando, visit local towns in the area, and even plan a trip to the beach! There’s no shortage of fun when you travel to the Sunshine State.

Perhaps one of the best places to start exploring your way through Orlando is to visit the downtown area. There, you’ll get a feel for what the locals do. Walk down historic blocks such as Church Street and visit the Railroad Depot, a commercial development and entertainment site. Grab lunch at some of the city’s most popular joints as well. Sit down to enjoy a meal overlooking Lake Eola and experience Orlando’s rich outdoor and wildlife environment. If you happen to pay a visit downtown in the evening, make sure to explore the great nightlife Orlando has to offer.

Renting a car in Orlando will help you get around to various destinations, especially since public transit is limited. If you do, there’s no better place to escape the desert heat than to soak in the rays at the beach! Cocoa Beach is the closest beach to Orlando that you can visit to get your tan on. Soak in gorgeous views, play water sports, and take advantage of any events at the pier. The shopper in you will also enjoy the great boutiques near the water. Of course, if going to the beach isn’t your thing, you might enjoy taking advantage of the great water parks!
