Orlando FL Off the Beaten PathExperience Off The Beaten Path Orlando FL

Orlando, Florida. Most people think of Disney, Universal and what seems like a hundred other theme parks. And they’re right – at last count, 14 theme parks call Orlando home. But Orlando is much more than just theme parks. Keep reading to experience the wonders of off the beaten path Orlando Florida attractions, arts, and so much more!


For instance, did you know that you can visit a real life chocolate factory? We’ll bet you’re in love already!  The Chocolate Kingdom features an interactive tour that explains how chocolate is made, beginning with the bean and ending with the creamy deliciousness we all crave! Your personal tour guide pairs up with a handsome Prince and the Dragon sidekick and travels with you through a Cacao Tree Greenhouse, a one-of-a-kind Chocolate Museum, and the Mystical River of Chocolate. You might feel like you’re in scene from a certain movie!! Guaranteed to delight chocoholics of all ages.

If dinner and a fun, interactive show sound like a good evening’s entertainment for you, you’ve got several options in Orlando. Try the Outta Control Magic Comedy Dinner Show at WonderWorks Orlando, the Capone’s Dinner & Show in Kissimmee, or the Sleuth’s Mystery Dinner Show, also in Orlando.

Off The Beaten Path Orlando – Arts, Culture & History

When you’re craving a day away from the high energy of the theme parks, take a step back in time and explore the Osceola County Pioneer Village. This charming village consists of authentic historic structures from different areas of the county that have been transported and restored onsite. They accurately depict the life of a bygone era.  View the homesteads of both the Tyson and Cadman families and learn a little about their separate histories and how they both arrived in the area.

Visit one of the many museums and galleries in Orlando for a different perspective! Boasting one of the oldest and most distinguished collections in all of Florida, The Rollins Museum of Art houses more than 5,000 objects from antiques to contemporary pieces. The Orlando Museum of Art typically shows up to 4 exhibits at a time and themes range from the artistic techniques, and styles of the ancient peoples of the Americas to an exhibition of drawings, paintings and prints of children’s book art.

It’s not a well publicized fact that Orlando is home to over 12 dance companies, but now you are in the know! Choose from the likes of Central Florida Ballet or the Orlando Ballet.


Let’s not forget one of America’s favorite pastimes! You might not think of golf when you think of Orlando, but it is truly a golfer’s paradise! Choose from one of 170 golf courses to enjoy the warm weather and sunshine of central Florida!!

So, you see that there is much more to Orlando than theme parks! Yes, they are a wonderful and entertaining way to spend your holiday, but don’t forget there is much more to enjoy in Orlando and we hope you decide to experience some of the “other Orlando” on your next trip here!
