Orlando is known as a land of amusements — and for good reason. The city is home to six unique theme parks, each with their own distinct thrills, including Universal Studios Orlando and Islands of Adventure. Or you can venture beyond the Big Six to Gatorland’s swampy terrain, or hit one of the many epic waterparks around town.

Don’t miss a kayak trip through glowing bioluminescent waters, or an airboat ride through wetlands.

Shopping

The shops in Historic Cocoa Village sell local handmade art and tropical décor. Souvenir shopping in Orlando is best at Disney Springs, Universal CityWalk and along International Drive.
