Planning a trip to Orlando, the Theme Park Capital of the World can get really overwhelming really fast, especially considering just how much there is to see in the sixth largest metropolitan city of Southern United States!
From world famous theme parks like Disney World and Universal Studios to daily wine and beer tasting tours, the city—affectionately called the City Beautiful—has it all!
If you’re planning on heading to Orlando on your next vacation, here are some tips from the locals to make the best of your trip:
It’s not all theme parks!
While Orlando is most famous for its large theme parks, the locals want you to know that it is not all the huge city has to offer! So while you may have visited the city mostly for the theme parks, it would be wise to leave some time out of your day getting on rides to explore what the beautiful city has to show you.
Beer and Wine anyone?
Who could say no to free alcohol on vacation? Certainly not us! Lakeridge, Florida’s largest vineyard and winery offers free tours and tastings all around the year. They also invite you to join them in free live concerts bursting with food, music and merriment!
Bonus: Take the kids along any day between August 10th-12th for a fun day of grape-stomping, crafts and excitement for their annual grape-stomping competitions!
S’Mores and Sing-Alongs
If you’re more of the outdoorsy type of person, Chip ‘n Dale’s nighttime campfire events are perfect for you! Replete with marshmallows, corndogs and campfire songs, the event also boasts a free late-night screening of all your favorite classic Disney flicks!
Arts and Culture
Bask in the history, arts and culture of the land by visiting CityArts Factory, home to four separate art galleries in downtown Ontario. Admission is completely free every day from Tuesday to Saturday, between 11am to 6pm.
Take a break from your exhausting theme park visit and stroll across this charming, turn of the 20th century inspired street complete with free street side shows featuring jugglers, comedians and even fire-eaters!
Disney’s Boardwalk also houses a number of quaint, unique restaurants guaranteed to leave you licking your fingers with their ware.
