    Things to do in Orlando,FL. - Lesser known local attractions

    Florida has always had an amazing blend of historical significance and fun. One of my favorite places as a kid was MarineLand. It was like Sea World, minus the crowds and fanfare. Sadly, I haven't been in years, and do not even know if the place is still open. If it is, I plan on getting out there, to relive some of the childhood fun.

    Weeki Wachee is a kick ass historical waterpark in Spring Hill, Florida. I drove by there two weeks ago, while working, and the parking lot had maybe 15 cars in it. Sad, to see such a fun place so empty. Good news, as a tourist or resident, is that we have a pretty empty water park, an hour and a half from East Orlando (northwest, directionally), that you can take the family and enjoy without the crowds.

    What other gems do we have in this area? Let's get away from I-drive and the Mouse. Let's get away from the crowds. Let's go have some fun in a place that's over-looked by most. Tell us about your experiences. Tell us why we should go. We should all try these places at least once, before the Mouse finally kills them off.

    Gatorland and Jungle Adventures are good examples. I haven't been since I was a kid, and couldn't tell you the difference (besides location) between the two. Anyone care to point those out?

    Dinosaur World!!! I've never been, but have driven by it countless times. What's actually there?

    The Resort area in Kissimmee has a bunch of stuff like gocarting and suvenior shops, which are fun to browse.

    It was so cool, as a kid, when a gator jumped at the boat, right where I was sitting. Of course, I was fully safe, it was just awesome to see those teeth come out and head my way.

    St. Augustine is a really good place to go, I like history so I find the area interesting.

    In the summer its nice to cool off at one of the natural springs that Florida has. Get to go swimming or see the wildlife besides love bugs for a change also. Rock Springs and DeLeon Springs is pretty good for this, both are state parks.

    If anyone wants to sponsor someone to go and take photos and write reviews of the attractions... let me know (or if we can work out a deal of free admission in exchange for a review on this site?)
