Wondering what things to do in Orlando? Whether you’re a local or a visitor, you can be overwhelmed with everything there is to see and do in Orlando and central Florida.
While the theme parks get the most attention, there’s a LOT more to do in Orlando!
If you need help creating your Orlando Bucket List, a new book will give you 100 ideas of cool and unique things to do in Orlando.
100 Things to Do In Orlando Before You Die
The second edition of 100 Things to Do in Orlando Before You Die was just released. And it’s definitely a great resource of little known things to do in Orlando on vacation or as a local.
I thought I knew all of the great things to do in Orlando and the central Florida area, but after reading the book, I realize there’s still a lot to do!
Out of 100 things to do in Orlando, I’ve done 38 of them.
On the list of things that I’ve done (and agree that they aren’t can’t miss attractions) is:
- ICE! at Gaylord Palms
- Crayola Experience
- Watching a Rocket Launch
- Bok Tower
- Clean the World
- Discovery Cove
Each listing has a description, tips and contact information. There’s even more bonus ideas at the end of every section.
What I was surprised about, though, is that there are so many things that I didn’t know existed in the Orlando area. Fun and unique things to do such as:
- A museum of waste collection trucks
- A Christmas lounge year-round
- An 11-scoop ice cream sundae that has to be seen to be believed
The choices are really interesting and unique. And I can’t wait to discover more of the top 100 things to do in Orlando now that I have the book as my guide!
The book is divided into sections, so that there is something for everyone, including:
- Food and Drink
- Music and Entertainment
- Sports and Recreation
- Culture and History
- Shopping and Fashion
