Ah, Orlando. Neighbour to the famous House of Mouse and birthplace of more than one American boy band. Can you imagine a world without *N Sync? Would you even want to?
But we digress. This central Florida destination may send out an epic siren song to amusement park enthusiasts, but you can do more on your holiday than ride the loop-de-loop. When you get the keys for an Orlando car hire (from your trusty friends here at Wotif), all of central Florida is within reach.
The sun is your wake-up call in Orlando all year round. After a good night’s rest at one of the top Orlando hotels, you’ll be up and at ’em as soon as the light peeks up from beneath the horizon. You have a sunny destination to explore! Get in your car and drive 8km north to Harry P. Leu Gardens, which spans about 50 acres.
All that plantlife is going to send plenty of oxygen straight to your bloodstream, so you’ll be ready to let out a proper screech on a ride at Universal Studios or a mouse-themed park. Thankfully, Orlando theme parks are just 21km from the gardens and 14km from downtown.
You have the keys to your Orlando car rental and a road trip playlist. You know what you need to do, mate. Open the sunroof on your car and see what Greater Florida has in store. Point your compass southwest, and in 136km you’ll hit Tampa, where the attractions like the Big Cat Rescue and Florida’s Gulf Coast await.
Need some vitamin “sea”? Then put the pedal to the metal and zoom 113km southeast of Orlando, and you can spend a day surfing in Melbourne (the other Melbourne) or wandering through the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral. Say “Houston, we have a problem” onemoretime and they may throw you out, though.
When you book car hire in Orlando with Wotif, you’ll have plenty of cash left over for theme park fairy floss and surfboard rentals. Book one of our Orlando holidays today, and you’ll be earning some weird tan lines from the seat of a spinning tea cup in no time.
