Home to over two million people, Orlando is the third-largest metropolitan area in Florida. Known as “The City Beautiful” to those who live there, Orlando is also the theme park capital of the world, whose attractions draw over sixty million people to the city per year. The centerpiece of Orlando’s tourism is, of course, Walt Disney World, a sprawling entertainment resort covering 43 square miles of land.
But there’s more to Orlando than just Disney World. There’s also a thriving music scene, featuring everything from hip-hop to Latino music. Orlando also is also home to many movie studios, giving the city its nickname “Hollywood East.”
But many visitors come to Orlando for the sunny weather and a day at the theme park of their choice. And if you’re in the city for a family vacation or a big group getaway, there’s no better way to see the sights than to rent a bus in Orlando from Metropolitan Shuttle. Whether you need a shuttle van for a small family get-together or an Orlando party bus for your big corporate event, Metropolitan Shuttle can help you see the city of Orlando the way it was meant to be seen.
Here are a few of Orlando’s best attractions.
A sister park of SeaWorld Orlando, Discovery Cove is a paradise for dolphin lovers. The theme park contains a coral reef where guests can swim alongside stingrays and tropical fish, and an area where they can touch and swim with bottlenose dolphins. There’s also an on-site aviary with over 250 varieties of tropical birds. Its latest attraction, the Grand Reef, offers guests a glimpse at reef sharks, moray eels, and even more tropical fish.
SeaWorld Orlando has attracted millions of visitors every year since its opening in 1973, and its different areas (or “seas”) operate year round. The park offers exhibits where visitors can get a look at dolphins, flamingos, manatees, alligators, pelicans, sea turtles, and more. There are also roller coasters, themed boat rides, water shows, dark rides, and more.
Fun Spot America
For those looking for a smaller theme park experience, Fun Spot America packs a lot of entertainment into a relatively small space. This theme park offers in wooden coasters, family coasters, go-kart tracks, and thrill rides like the Skycoaster and the Rip Curl. The Skycoaster is the second-tallest of its kind in the world.
Orlando Science Center
Gather the students onto a school bus rental and head to the Orlando Science Center. This private museum aims to “inspire science learning for life” with exhibits on STEM for all ages. The Science Center features Florida’s largest public refractor telescope at the Crosby Observatory, fossil and dino eggs at the “DinoDigs” exhibit, an engineering exhibit where visitors can build prototypes, and a KidsTown area where children can learn a variety of scientific facts hands-on by performing entertaining activities.
On the other hand, if a laid-back nature experience is more your speed, you can take a minibus rental out of Orlando to the Kennedy Space Center for a day trip, take a journey out to the Everglades, or see the sunrise from a hot air balloon. There’s no shortage of amazing things to do in Orlando, and most of them are just a charter bus ride away.
