Explore the roads (waters?) less traveled in central Florida
Yes, we know, people travel to Orlando to visit that famous mouse and all of those princesses. But central Florida has so much more to offer than amusement parks! In the late 1960s, Walt Disney chose a swampy patch of farmland to build his parks. Sure, you can camp at Fort Wilderness. But we’re interested in the wetlands that aren’t quite so crowded. From the pair of Tohopekaliga lakes near Kissimmee and St. Cloud, to the massive Lake Apopka, there are a million tiny bodies of water in between. It’s a paddler’s paradise! Cyclists love Florida too, because there isn’t a hill in sight – just be sure to hydrate well and pack bug spray.
