Further information

Believe it or not, there is more to Florida than Walt Disney and Universal Studios!

There a numerous smaller attractions in the Orlando/Kissimmee area, details of which may be found from the literature that you will find in the welcome pack at the condo.

Within a short drive is the Kennedy Space Centre and the beaches of the Atlantic coast, or one of the older attractions ‘Silver Springs’ near to Ocala. The crystal clear water of this location was the scene for many old films, including the Tarzan films starring Johnny Wiessmuller. It is a good place for a relaxing day spotting the local Floridian wild life.

If you are interested in the flora and fauna of Florida, why not take a short drive over to Citrus County and enjoy canoeing, snorkelling, diving or even hunting (depending on the season). If you are lucky you may get to swim with one of the endangered manatees.

If you have time to spare you could even consider a trip to Saint Augustine, between Jacksonville and Daytona Beach on the Atlantic coast. It is Americas oldest city and is a must for history buffs.

And of course no visit to the parks would be complete without a visit to Busch Gardens at Tampa, it has rides there to rival any of those at the other parks, and has the added fun of seeing all the animals you would expect on an African safari.

One of the more recent additions is Florda Eco Tours where you can spend the days flying along zip lines above the Florida forests, and take guided tours to see the wildlife

Even if you decide to stay within a short distance of our condo we know that there will be enough to keep you entertained whatever your tastes. We hope you enjoy your stay, and look forward to you returning sometime in the future.

Shopping
Apart from all the souvenirs in the Theme Park Shops, don't forget the American outlets. They are on every main road and some real bargains can be found, but just remember that a lot of electrical goods are not suitable for UK use.

Make time to visit at least one of the malls - two of the largest are the Florida Mall (on the junction of Sand Lake Rd. and Orange Blossom Trail), and Altamonte Mall (exit 46 off the I4).
