Everyone knows that going to Orlando on vacation is one of the most popular spots in the country. It is the land of all things Disney, beautiful beaches, Disney, warm weather and more Disney. Yes, Disney is one of the biggest attractions that bring families and even adults year round. Even most of the Orlando hotels are Disney themed. However, after you have been to Disney a time or two or three or more, you’re pretty much done with it.
So when the time comes to plan your next Orlando trip, take a look at some of the non-Disney things there are to do. Just starting with the beach alone gives you countless things to do and see. And what makes this a great place to vacation is there are Orlando hotels that aren’t Disney themed and just as close to the other non-Disney activities and things to see.
Arts, Basketball and Relaxation
If you want your trip to be more engaging in the arts, the Grand Bohemian is the Orlando hotel for you. Towering over the Arts District, you can enjoy a panoramic view of Orlando while the kids play in the rooftop swimming pool. With two of the best restaurants in Orlando located right here, you can spend the day in the Arts district then come “home” to eat and relax.
With a 37” flat screen television in your room with cable television, the kids will be at home while mom relaxes in the marble bath and dad catches up with the free Wi-Fi access. One day skip the arts district and spend it on the Grand Bohemian Hotel’s sundeck or in the whirlpool. If you’re there during the season, you’ll be less than ½ mile from the Orlando Magic’s Amway Arena.
Feel The Need For Speed?
For the racing fan, the Comfort Inn is one of many Orlando hotels located near the Daytona International Speedway. You’re also just minutes away from the Central Florida Zoological Park and Daytona Beach itself.
And if you just can’t come to Orlando without some Disney, the Walt Disney World amusement park isn’t far away from this Orlando hotel either. Just about an hour’s drive to either Disney World or Universal Studios Florida theme park you can get your Disney fix too.
Like all Orlando Hotels, this one will have all the amenities you need in your hotel room from hair dryers and ironing board. You’ll find a newspaper at your door each weekday and the outdoor pool or the hot tub is at your beck-n-call any time. A free hot breakfast every morning will get your day energized and ready for the busy day ahead. Or go to one of the many local restaurants, many are in walking distance
Looking For “Space”?
At the The Best Western Space Shuttle , you’re just a short drive from Kennedy Space Center. There are also other non-Disney activities at this Orlando hotel like the Merritt Island National Wildlife Resort and it’s hiking trails. Or maybe you’d like a true Florida experience with an airboat ride on the St John’s River after enjoying a full free continental breakfast.
And like most Orlando hotels, this one is also just under an hour away from the popular Disney World as well as SeaWorld. After a day at the “obligatory” Disney activities, come back to a room that offers free Wi-Fi along with cable television in each room. Or spend a day hanging out around the swimming pool and enjoy the outdoor barbecue facilities, making yourself at home.
