Discover An Enjoyable Orlando Vacation

By: Jamesredder
You are probably aware that Orlando vacations revolve around theme parks, but this beautiful city has much more to offer the visitor than just thrilling rides. Orlando has many churches, museums, parks, markets and unusual tourist attractions to keep the most determined visitor happy. Everything a visitor could possibly want is here and the reason why people return year after year.

Orlando is a welcoming place that offers people a wide choice of clubs, shopping malls, bars and clubs. It is easy to stay occupied on an Orlando vacation at anytime of the year so only a few of the lesser know visitor attractions are mentioned here.

Although Zoos have taken a bit of criticism in recent years, their value to education and the preservation of species cannot be dismissed and the Central Florida Zoo in Sanford is one of these. Privately owned, this zoo is also a botanical garden run by a charitable group whose purpose is to protect native and endangered species around the world.

It is also possible to see a large collection of the works of Louis Tiffany at the Museum of American Art over in Winter Park. The famous chapel interior commissioned for the World's Columbian Exhibition back in 1893 is also here along with many items of Tiffany jewelry, leaded glass, ornaments and clayware.

Not chiefly created for children's amusement Orlando is certainly a city for all ages since adult attractions and family attractions are just about equal in numbers. There is an abundance of night life when you vacation in Orlando with a wide range of restaurants, bars, street entertainment and clubs.

If you are more technology and science minded then a trip to the Orlando Science Center will be a must as is a huge complex incorporating 10 halls with exhibitions everything from the Florida Everglades to the plains of Mars. An alternative to this would be the International Trolley and Train Museum which can be found along International Drive and has one of the country's largest operating indoor G gauge layouts in a space of over four thousand square feet.

For something a little different there's the Titanic Exhibition which tells the story of the ill fated Ocean Liner performed by a character from the ship; the displays contain some original salvaged items and at times the tour is very moving. Away from all the hustle is the wonderful Lake Eola Park in the heart of downtown; it has beautiful sidewalks in over forty acres where it is possible to spend a few peaceful hours.

How could anyone possibly visit Orlando without a visit to one of it's famed theme parks? For people that dislike sitting around on a beach then a vacation in Orlando is ideal although there are certain times during the year when it is much busier than others.
