Whether you came to us at Furnished Apartments Orlando looking for a place for yourself, or as part of a couple or a family, you will have no trouble establishing your free time with a schedule filled with things to do. Of course, Orlando is best known for its theme parks, but the city also offers a remarkable number of activities for those looking for something else to do. You can do everything from approaching wildlife at Gatorland to supporting the NBA team, Orlando Magic at Amway Center. You could go skydiving or play golf at one of Orlando's 170+ golf courses. You might even prefer visiting one of the city's many museums or attending other cultural activities. Whatever “floats your boat,” you will find it here in Orlando.

Outdoor Activities:
Let's begin with some of the theme parks and other major attractions that Orlando has become famous for:

  • Walt Disney World
  • Epcot Center
  • Universal Studios Florida
  • SeaWorld Orlando
  • Discovery Cove
  • Lego Imagination Center
  • Wet ‘N Wild
  • WonderWorks
  • Mary, Queen of the Universe Shrine
  • Orlando Watersports Complex
  • Dave & Busters Orlando
  • The Holy Land Experience

If you're looking for things to do outside of your Orlando furnished apartment, but would prefer something a little more peaceful than the hustle and bustle of Orlando's theme parks, then you might check out some of the area's beautiful gardens and parks. Arboretum at the University of Central Florida is one such place, with its beautiful botanical gardens. It is free to visitors and has over 600 species of plants on display. You might want to also check out the Harry P. Leu Gardens, or the historic Bok Mountain Lake Sanctuary and the Bok Tower Gardens. These are both carefully designed, landscaped gardens that offer tours for a small price of admission. Another option, A World of Orchids, is a working greenhouse and has thousands of blooming plants in a tropical rain forest-like setting.

In addition to theme parks and public gardens, Orlando offers many other opportunities for outdoor recreation. They have tons of country clubs in which you can play golf or tennis. They also have nature preserves, RV parks, and a multitude of lakes and rivers for boating adventures.

Sport for Spectators:
If you happen to be a sports fan, then while staying in one of our short term rentals in Orlando you won't want to miss the NBA's Orlando Magic play at the Amway Center. The Magic is Orlando's member of the big four! You can also see professional indoor soccer at the Amway Center by getting tickets to see the Orlando Sharks. If you prefer football, you could watch the Orlando Predators, which are a member of the Arena Football League (AFL). They also play all their home games at the Amway Center.

You'll also have a great opportunity to see college sports. At the University of Central Florida, you have the UCF Knights who are currently members of Conference USA and compete in NCAA Division 1. They have awesome athletic facilities including their football team's home, Bright House Networks Stadium.

Arts and Culture:
With some of the most creative installations in its theme parks, it's no wonder Orlando enjoys a strong local dynamism. This city gave birth to exceptional independent films presented at the Florida Film Festival and has several museums of fine arts, offering visitors and residents a choice of classic and modern cultural entertainment. People with more traditional tastes can attend theatrical performances, art galleries, and go to museums to admire the work of local and international artists.
