How to have a great Christmas Vacation in Orlando

How to have a great Christmas vacation in Orlando

Christmas is almost upon us. No more pressures from school or from work (well, for some of us) because a vacation is long overdue. So, if you are ever planning to spend a different kind of vacation this year, why not spend it in Orlando, Florida. It is quite unique because of the different weather there that contradicts to the cold and whiteness that is always associated with December. So, you ask what is fun to do in Orlando? There are tons of things to do, but here are my top five favorites:

1. Walt Disney World Resort

What kid doesn’t want to go to DisneyLand? Whether you are twelve or twenty-one, everyone loves to go DisneyLand. It is the largest and most visited recreational resort in the world. Take your family here and find yourselves lost in the magic and wonder of the wonderful world of Disney. Just make sure you have enough to make it to most of the rides, because this will not be an expensive trip. However, it will be worth it.

2. Wet ‘n Wild Orlando

Founded by Seaworld creator George Millay, this first ever major park in the United States has been a tourist favorite for years. With its dozens of thrill rides and even the awesome Wave Pool, you can’t go wrong with spending Christmas here. And did I mention you can play Volleyball here?

3. Seaworld

Who hasn’t heard of the world famous Seaworld? I remember myself fantasizing riding the majestic dolphins as we were watching a Seaworld DVD movie. Take your family for an enriching and educational vacation to watch and appreciate the importance of aquatic wildlife. It is an experience you and your family will never forget.

4. Fort Christmas Historical Park

Are you looking for an educational and free trip this Christmas? Then visit the FortChristmasHistoricalPark featuring a life-size replica of FortChristmas. Here, you can see seven restored pioneer houses called “Cracker” houses and military artifacts and Seminole items found during the Seminole war. This is to show the early life of pioneers from 1870 to 1930. And did I mention this is free?

5. Kelly Park

Are historical parks nor in your desired itinerary? Well, here at Kelly Park you can be one with nature and enjoy a summer-themed Christmas vacation. Swim in several lagoons and pools and even ride the stream along with your own inner tube. You and your family can also enjoy a nice picnic and let your children play in the playground. And best part of all… admission is free for everyone!

So remember, always plan your trips ahead to avoid hassles and delays. Anywhere you go, it will always be an exciting experience when you are with the people you love. So, treat them with the best you got and put into consideration the vacation spots I have just recommended. Merry Christmas everybody!
