lot of adventures too.
You and the family have seen everything Disney world has to offer but you’ve still got a day or
two, what do you do? Maybe you decide to venture out with the kids or maybe grandma and grandpa decided to watch the kids for you to have a day to explore while they get quality time
with the kids.
Ponce De Leon Springs – if water is what you’re wanting you’ll want to travel the hour
northeast of Orlando! Ponce De Leon Springs is a natural spring, which is a sight to see in itself.
Here you’ll find canoeing, kayaking, or just go for a swim. Working up an appetite? Head over to
The Sugar Mill Restaurant and make your own pancakes at your table.
Cape Canaveral – this location is the easiest beach to get to from Disney world with only an
hours drive essentially one way. You can choose to lay on the beach, splash in the water or visit
the Kennedy Space Center which is only a few short minutes away.
Blue Springs State Park – here you’ll find manatees; nature’s gentle giants. During the winters
manatees come to bask in the warmer waters of the park. This is truly an unforgettable
experience. You can spend the day by taking a boat tour, snorkeling, or watching with your feet
Cocoa beach – if you want a little rest from all of the crowds Cocoa beach is what you’ll enjoy.
The beach is only about 60 miles East of Orlando. Hit the pier for fishing and seafood
restaurants or head South to take surf lessons.
Downtown Orlando – you can visit Downtown for a comedy show at Sak Comedy Lab, catch a
basketball game, or head to Lake Eola to navigate a swan boat around the lake.
St. Augustine – this is America’s oldest city, it’s located about 100 miles Northeast of Orlando. If
you decide to visit St. Augustine and want to see all of the sites without all of the walking you
can take a trolley tour. The trolley tour hits the major attractions and allows you to to get off and
on the trolley at your leisure. You’ll get a peek at the Spanish era when you arrive in historical
Vilano Beach and downtown Colonial Quarter.
Legoland – the LEGO lover in all of us needs to visit at least once. Here you’ll indulge in all things LEGO including giant LEGO blocks.

park you’ll find Busch Gardens here too.
