Does Orlando equal Disney World? Not completely — there are so many different and varied experiences to be had. Here’s information for those seeking even more themepark pleasures at Universal Orlando’s “Universal Studios” and “Islands of Adventure” as well as at SeaWorld.
In addition, your family can explore the Everglades by boat, see wildlife, go fishing, swim with dolphins, enjoy free museums, outdoor recreation and more.
There is also a great science museum, and the nearby Kennedy Space Center. Even themepark skeptics may be surprised at how much fun they can have.
