Looking for things to do in Orlando? Famously branded “the theme park capital of the world”, it’s no surprise that the likes of Disney and Universal consistently rank as the most popular attractions in Orlando, drawing in millions of children and adults of all ages every year. For a family vacation full of surprises and unforgettable experiences, Orlando is hard to beat. 

We’ve mapped out all the parks, waterparks, nature parks and everything in between, not forgetting the region's best alternative activities and out-of-town excursions such as safari nature trails, air-boating the Everglades and visiting a certain NASA space centre on the west coast. Venturing into the centre of Orlando is a good idea too, with Downtown promising a solid line-up of interesting things to see and do. It’s easy to forget that Orlando is not just a summer vacation spot, and it has a vibrant local scene of farmer’s markets, sporting events and beautiful green spaces, all of which welcome out-of-towners who want a taste of the local life.
