Orlando has a lot more to offer other than Disneyland and Universal Studios. Having 12 different theme parks makes it a great place for vacations and relishing family time together. Apart from all the hustle and bustle of the city, enjoying nature is also one of the people’s leisure interest.
For that purpose Orlando offers airboat tours around the city. For those who are unknown to airboat, it is a flat-bottomed boat powered by an aircraft propeller. They are a great means of transport in marshy areas. Like the famous Florida’s Everglades National Park, a home for wildlife.
