Everyone knows Orlando as being the home of a particularly famous mouse, but Orlando area attractions have so much more to offer travel and tour groups. The central Florida area is beautiful and its nickname as the Sunshine State holds true. If you’re taking a motorcoach group excursion to the Orlando area, here are some spectacular attractions to visit.
Aside from Disney World, Universal Studios, and the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, there exists a place themed with one of Florida’s lovely (but fierce) native reptiles. Gatorland is affordable family fun across 110 acres of swampy marsh and sightseeing opportunities for all kinds of wildlife. Get up close and personal with live shows including gator wrestling or opt for a safer aerial view on the screamin’ gator zip line. Keep an eye out for the extremely rare leucistic “white alligator.” This Orlando attraction is one that will keep your travel group on their toes.
Take your charter group on a short motorcoach ride about an hour east of Orlando for an area attraction famous for having launched men and women into space. The Kennedy Space Center is an indoor/outdoor museum of space travel, featuring many interactive exhibits and simulations. View actual space shuttles that pierce the sky or hop into the small one-man capsules for great photo ops. Blast off in the Imax theater to catch a glimpse of life aboard the International Space Station and learn about the historic and future launches on the guided tours.
All aboard the bus for next stop: Titusville, just north of the Kennedy Space Center. Here you’ll find the longest undeveloped stretch of public beach on Florida’s east coast. It is a perfect destination to escape the shops and stalls of vendors and just soak up the sun on this beautiful beach. Also be sure to bring a surfboard and an MP3 of “Wipeout,” as many locals consider it a surfing hotspot. Stay close with your charter group or spread out over the 24 miles of shoreline.
Whether you have kids in your group or you are a kid at heart, the new Legoland theme park will allow your entourage to exercise their imaginations in the world of LEGO. Legoland Florida covers 150 acres with more than 50 rides, shows, a water park, and more. Spend a day building and interacting with one of the most iconic toys of the past fifty years. Relax in an air-conditioned motorcoach as you travel south of Orlando to Winter Haven for Legoland.
Discover the world-recognized Cirque du Soleil during your stay in Florida. Each show is a musical, performed live on stage in a theater setting, full of choreography and gymnastics. Wonderous costumes and gravity-defying acrobatics dazzle and mystify audiences. Cirque du Soleil is a one-of-a-kind experience and is a must-see attraction for groups. Be sure to plan ahead and make reservations to guarantee your group has the opportunity to witness the show.
