When you think of Orlando, you may imagine a stroll down Disney’s Main Street U.S.A., or a dizzying ride on Universal Studios’ Incredible Hulk Coaster. But the Orlando area is also full of unique outdoor and sporting activities. There are incredible boating, fishing and camping opportunities that make for almost unlimited recreation possibilities.
Boat rides are available on Central Florida’s most scenic waterways. You can go birdwatching on the beautiful and historic Lake Tohopekaliga in Kississmee, or adventure into Old Florida on the St. Johns River. Consider the Wekiva River for an unforgettable day of canoeing, kayaking and paddle boarding while viewing alligators and other wildlife.
For anglers, the Orlando region offers an array of fishing lakes and locales. Lake Toho and the Kissimmee Chain are top rated fishing destinations close to the theme parks. There are also saltwater excursions less than an hour’s drive from Orlando on the famous Mosquito Lagoon and Indian River Lagoon.
For those who want to get in touch with nature, you can pedal the West Orange Trail, or float over swamps and orange groves in a hot air balloon. There are even hang glider vendors that can offer you the experience of a lifetime. So next vacation enjoy an Orlando outdoor adventure!
