There's Even More Florida Attractions Out There!
There are even more fun and exciting things to do in Florida that will fill up your time or keep you coming back for more. You just can't do everything in one trip. Here is a list of other Orlando and Florida Attractions that make the AWESOME lists!
Busch Gardens Amusement Park - 1 1/2 hours Drive from Orlando
Located in Tampa, an hour's drive west on Interstate 4 from the Walt Disney World Resort area, Busch Gardens Tampa actually opened in 1959, years before any of the Orlando theme parks. Once a simple tropical garden next to a brewery tour, Busch Gardens Tampa has evolved into Florida's top thrill park, offering more world-class coasters than the rest of the Central Florida parks combined.
Busch Gardens Tampa is a sister park of SeaWorld Orlando, and combo tickets for the two parks are readily available at both locations, as well as on their respective websites. SeaWorld also offers free bus transportation to Busch Gardens Tampa for multi-park ticket-holders who don't want to make the drive on their own.

Central Florida's newest major theme park, Legoland is a playground for the creative at heart. The 150 acres that make up this world dedicated to those squarish building blocks is packed with 50 rides and several shows and attractions.
Dramatic colors and towers created from Legos greet guests at the appropriately named “The Beginning,” where you'll find the park entry and guest services. From there, choose from 10 themed areas, built around everything from pirates to medieval castles. Legoland is about 40 minutes south of Orlando in Winter Garden on the site of the old Cypress Gardens.
