For most people, any mention of Orlando immediately conjures up images of sprawling theme parks filled with characters plucked right out of popular animated movies.
Museum-lovers will appreciate NASA Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex and Gallery of Local Art. Shop till you drop at The Mall at Millenia and The Artistic Hand Gallery & Studio. Get out of town with these interesting Orlando side-trips: Hangar's Beach (in Satellite Beach), Pappy's Patch U-Pick Strawberries (in Oviedo) and Gallery On First (in Sanford). Pack the 17th (Mon) with family-friendly diversions at Walt Disney World Resort. Have a day of magic on the 16th (Sun) at Disney's Animal Kingdom. There's still lots to do: explore the world behind art at Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of American Art, discover the magic at Happily Ever After Fireworks, get in on the family fun at Universal Orlando Resort, and glide peacefully along the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area.
