Great Day Trips From Orlando

Many people visit Orlando Florida each year for their families vacation. After going to the theme parks it is always fun to take a few days 'off' from the parks and just relax by the pool. I am going to share with you some great day trips for the whole family. Just a few hours drive from Orlando or even less and you can be at one of Florida's beautiful beaches such as Cocoa Beach, FloridaCocoa Beach is often referred to as the "Disney Beach" because it is just a short drive from Orlando. Also, Disney Cruises depart from the port at Port Canaveral which is nearby to Cocoa Beach.

Another great day trip from Orlando is St. Augustine, Florida. It is a two hour drive from Orlando Florida but totally worth the drive. My family visited St. Augustine, Florida last year and we absolutely loved it! There is a lot of fun stuff to see and do, especially for children. My children loved the Pirate Museum and exploring the fort Castillo De San Marcos. Castillo De San Marcos fort is awesome and we spent about two hours exploring everything, watching the re enactments and they even have working cannon's! The admission prices are just $7 for adults and children under 16 years old are free.

St. Augustine offers so much to do, you can take a guided tour on a horse drawn carriage

Another fun day trip would be to visit LegoLand Florida. My children loved Legoland Florida. We spent the whole day there and wished that we had more time to visit for two days. It is about a 45 minute drive from Orlando. Be sure to read my review on Legoland Florida




Another great day trip from Orlando is the Kennedy Space Center located in Cape Canaveral Florida. Ticket prices vary. There are several tours offered and you can even have lunch with an astronaut for just $29.99 per adult!
