The heart of central Florida is Orlando, home to popular theme parks Walt Disney World, Universal Orlando, SeaWorld and Legoland Florida. But it's easy enough to get out to the coast in either direction, where kids can play at the beach, see alligators in their natural habitat, and explore lakes and nature preserves.
Airboat tours - Airboat tours offer exhilarating, high-speed rides into shallow lake, swamp, and marshland areas not accessible by other watercraft. These close encounters with nature often include alligator and wild game sightings, as well as bird-watching opportunities. Every rider gets a life vest and hearing protection from the loud fans in the back of the boat.
