The most popular attractions in Central Florida...

Updated on May 7, 2011

Central Florida

Living in Central Florida the options for tourist destinations and Theme parks are seemingly endless. Orlando Is a very popular vacation destination all thanks to the one and only Mickey Mouse and Disney theme parks. There is Disney World, Epcot, Animal Kingdom, MGM Studios, Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure, Sea World, Wet N Wild, and so much more all jumbled in to one big ball of fun and excitement. Now coming to Orlando to enjoy yourself at one of these Theme Parks can be costly so bring plenty of cash. Just one adult admission to any of these parks ranges between $25.00 and $75.00 with a lower price for children.

If you are not interested in getting in the mix with the major Theme Parks there is still plenty of options for things to do. There is International Drive this long strip is considered to be one of Orlando's most dynamic destinations and is a main artery to all the major theme parks and other things to do. By taking a ride on the I-Ride Trolley you can not only discover all of what there is to offer on this major strip but also save yourself time, cash and headache by staying out of all the mayhem that can be caused by the traffic. The trolley is also covenant by arriving every twenty minutes at stops. This is as I already mentioned cost efficient by only having a fare of $1.00 per ride or $3.00 for an unlimited 24 hour pass. There are other attractions on International Drive that can be very fun and not as busy or as expensive as the major Parks. Two of these attractions are Wonder Works and Ripley's believe it or not Museum that I can say from experience is a fun, wonderful and also educating experience that can be fun for the whole family. Other attractractions include a skydiving wind tunnel offered by Skyventure, tour and charter helicopters from Air Florida Helicopter Charters Inc, Congo River Golf ( a place where you can explore caves and feed live alligators), Discovery cove ( for the animal lovers), Fun Spot Go Karts and Arcade, Extreme Party Warehouse ( an attraction full of extreme inflatable attractions), Gator Golf and Adventure Park ( see live gator wrestling), Hawian Rumble Golf, Magical Midway (extreme Go Karts and amusement rides), Pointe Orlando (shopping and movies), Pirate Cove Adventure Golf, Putting Edge glow in the dark mini golf, Tiki Island Golf, Train Land International ( a really cool train exhibit), The Titanic experience, and even a little chapel called the Royal Wedding Chapel where non Florida residents can get married by candle light without the wait for a marriage license, and to think I thought Vegas was the only place to do that. All of the places I have mentioned above vary in admission fees starting at free. There are also several water parks in Orlando to check out if you are in the mood for some fun in the sun. Disney's Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon, Seaworlds's Aquatica and Wet and Wild are the most popular choices with adult admissions starting at $35.00 or so. There are also water parks at some resorts and timeshares in the area. Looking for nightlife? Well look no further Orlando has exactly what you are looking for and more. Orlando is just full of nightclubs and bars. Three very popular destinations are Citywalk, Pleasure Island, and Olde Town. There are several different bars with different settings at all three places as well as retail shops. Another popular attraction in Orlando is the dinner theaters. There are several to choose from Dolly Parton's Dixie Stampede, Arabian Knights, Pirates Dinner Adventure, and Sleuth's Mystery Dinner Theater are just a few. As you can see there is a lot to choose from when you visit the Orlando area of Central Florida.You can find out more information, prices, locations, resorts, and I-Ride Trolley information at this address on the Internet.

Also located in Central Florida is one of the world's most famous beaches. That would be Daytona Beach. There are plenty of things to do there besides bounce around in the sand and surf even though that is a lot of fun too. Starting with the Daytona 500 experience if you like Nascar you will love this place. It has everything to do with racing and even simulators and actual rides on the Daytona International Speedway. For the avid shoppers there is The Daytona Flea Market which is currently one of the largest flea markets in the United States. There are historical parks that include Ponce Inlet lighthouse, Birthplace of speed park, Black Heritage Museum, Eldora State House, and much more. Even on the outskirts of Daytona in cities such as Deltona, Deleon Springs, Deland, Orange City, Debary, New Symerna and Edgewater you can find really nice state parks and historical destinations. Daytona also features a water park and a beach side boardwalk which are also nice places to check out while visiting. You can find out more about Daytona Beach by visiting this website .

Florida is a warm and beautiful place that can be very fun and your opportunities for excitement are almost endless. Research more about Florida by searching Central Florida Attractions on your search engine.
