I’ve lived in the Orlando area for almost fifteen years now. I’m so lucky to live in a city that so many visitors can’t wait to see. But not everyone that visits can afford to spend thousands of dollars on expensive activities while they’re here. If you’re looking for a few low-cost activities for your next trip to Orlando, you’ve come to the right place!
A World of Orchids
This park is a 22,500 square foot school of the orchids that train noses and eyes to appreciate beauty. The natural exhibits include fare from Southeast Asia, Australia, Indonesia, and South and Central America. This business is closed Sunday but found on the other days of the week at 2501 Old Lake Wilson Road, Kissimmee 34747.
Legend Of Spook Hill
Take a drive to spook hill in Lake Wales to see if your car opposes gravity. A large sign that includes instructions about testing an old Indian legend marks the mystery spot. The story is about a battle between a massive gator and an Indian Chief. The Chief won but the gator promised revenge. After the death of the Chief, pioneers noticed the their horses struggling while traveling up hill and after the road was paved cars have been coasting uphill ever since. Perhaps the two are still locked in battle. Check it out on North Wales drive and 5th street on the east side (look for the sign) a quarter mile south of Highway 17 and Burns avenue.
Lowes Portofino Bay Hotel at Universal Orlando
Do you enjoy Italian music? If so come to the Portofino Bay Hotel at Universal Orlando during the evening at this scenic hotel famous for its themed motif. Come and enjoy Musica della Notte at 5601 Universal Orlando, Florida 32819
Old town is a unique amusement park that includes a shopping area. Themed nighttime events are typical like Thursdays when hundreds of motorcycles invade the streets. Saturday evening events include the vintage car parade that includes hundreds of vehicles. Other holiday themed events can be expected but every night live entertainment begins at 7:30. Only the fair type rides require money, everything else is free. Join the party at 5770 West Irlo Bronson Memorial Hwy Kissimmee Florida, 34746
March of the Peabody Ducks
At 11:oo am and 5:00 pm viewers fill the lobby in the Peabody Hotel lobby for a daily ritual like no other. Five mallard ducks enter from the elevator to the music of John Phillip Sousa on a red carpet to bathe in the Royal Duck Fountain to the applause of an enthusiastic crowd. At the 5:00 show the order reverses as they march back to their $100,00 palace for a dinner feast. Join the procession at 9801 International Drive Orlando, FL 32819.
