Central Florida travel guide

4.1
Disney Parks & Activities · Theme Parks · Water Parks
Central Florida attracts visitors with its subtropical climate, sandy beaches, theme parks, golf courses, and world-famous stock-car races. This part of the state is also home to numerous natural springs, many of which run through protected state parks and provide ideal natural locations for picnicking and spotting indigenous manatees and alligators. Central Florida boasts two coastlines, so it shouldn't come as a surprise that seafood is extremely popular in these parts. Tasting the local cuisine of fresh clams, lobster, mahi mahi, grouper, and yellowfin tuna is definitely one of the things to do. In addition to being a vacation hub, the central parts of Florida also house some of the country's top medical research and high-tech manufacturing facilities.
