Orlando never fails to amaze. There’s a good reason adrenaline-seekers and fun-filled families alike venture to the Sunshine State and leave ready to return again and again.

But beyond the theme parks lies so much more. In a city where outdoor fun is all year long, it would take over 120 days to experience everything Orlando has to offer. So, the time to start visiting is now.

At the park, you can get up close to alligators, crocodiles, turtles, manatees, and river otters.
