5 Things to Do Outside Orlando, Florida

There is plenty to do outside of Orlando, Florida. Aside from Disney and all the other theme parks, there's an entire natural world to be explored in Florida. Here are 5 activities unique to Florida! 1. See the Manatees Starting around mid November, Manatees will find there way to Blue Springs State Park to hang out through the winter. Although you are able to get very close to these gentle giants; swimming, snorkeling or diving are restricted while the manatees are present. While visiting the park we witnessed around 10 or more manatees wading in the hot springs. The park entrance fee was only $3. It was a really great experience to observe manatees and many other animals in their natural environment.
