The Perfect Day in Orlando, No Matter What You're Looking For

8:50 PM


There are very few cities that truly "have it all." In my opinion, Orlando, FL. is one of them. No matter what you might be looking for, whether it's fun in the great outdoors, thrills, or just a good old fashioned family vacation, Orlando has it covered. So, when I was asked by Knok.com to contribute a post to their list of "100 Cities to Home Swap Before You Die," I knew Orlando would be my choice.

{What is Knok.com?}



Knok.com is a site that helps facilitate home swaps all over the world. Just like the movie "The Holiday," people can swap homes for a set period of time and really live in the dream city of their choice.

I was asked to write about the perfect day in the perfect city, but the fact is, what's perfect is different depending on what you're looking for, which is why Orlando is the perfect destination choice. Check out the perfect day options from Orlando below, based on different vacationers' desires.

{The Perfect Day for Families}



I can think of no better day for families in Orlando, than visiting one of the city's many theme parks. Your choices include Disney World and its four family oriented theme parks, Universal with its first rate simulated rides, Sea World with its myriad of educational, fun and animal filled features and even LegoLand, where you can enjoy a theme park and water park all rolled into one. It could easily spend the entire day taking in shows, experiencing rides and enjoying delicious food in any of these theme parks.

{The Perfect Day for an Educational Vacation}



Want to pack a little learning into your vacation? Your day would start with a visit to the Orlando Science Center, where its various floors of interactive exhibits would keep you learning for hours on end. After that, head to the Orlando Museum of Art and take in beautiful works of art from some of the world's finest artists and even pick up a little history with their display of "Life Stories: American Portraits Past and Present. End your educational day with a dinner at Medieval Times, where you can throw little learning in with plenty of fun, as you wander through their museum area full of medieval displays before the dinner show begins.

{The Perfect Day for Nature Lovers}




Grab a quick bite to each in the morning and then head out on a short drive from Orlando to Florida EcoSafaris. Enjoy a coach, horseback or zipline safari and take in gorgeous southern scenery, fresh air and plenty of animals as well. Enjoy a delicious lunch in their on-site restaurant and then head off to Boggy Creek Airboat Rides for some adventure in the outdoors. Glide across the water of the Florida swamp at thrilling speeds and if you're lucky, catch an alligator or two in their natural habitat. Haven't gotten enough of the gators? Take a trip to Gatorland and experience these powerful creatures up close and personal. You can even try your hand at feeding them if your brave enough. End your evening with a picnic dinner and call it a day!

See? No matter what your're searching for, Orlando has it all. From thrilling rides to quiet nature trails, you can plan the perfect day in my perfect city of choice, Orlando.
