Believe it or not, there's a whole city in Orlando outside of Disney World, Universal Studios, SeaWorld and, well, Ripley's. Visit the amusement parks and rest in real parks right after.
- Loch Haven Park is a little piece of haven—ahem, heaven—right in the middle of Orlando. Museums, theater groups, and lots and lots of grass call this 45-acre spot home.
- Main Street, USA, meet Church Street Station, FLA. Built around a former train station, this hotspot offers entertainment, several dining options and, of course, places to shop.
- With an upside-down building, how can you go wrong? Wonderworks is touristy, of course, but science-inspired exhibits are worth a peek. Plus, they don't have Laser Tag at SeaWorld.
