Things to Do in Orlando

Orlando is a modern metropolis with a rich history.  Before it was known for theme parks and world-class resorts, Central Florida was a major hub for both the cattle and the citrus industries.  You can learn all about the latter sample premium juices at the Florida Natural Growers Grove House Visitor Center in Lake Wales.  One of the largest cooperatives of citrus growers in the stat, the company dates back to 1933.

The Orange County Regional History Center, a Smithsonian Affiliate that features permanent and traveling exhibitions, takes visitors through 12,000 years of local history - from the famous sinkhole that swallowed a whole city block to what life was like in a Pioneer Cracker home.  Locatined in the 1927 Orange County Courthouse, the building itself is an historic landmark.

Dating back to the 1880's, the City of Winter Park is chock-full of historic sites.  Visitors should start at the Winter Park History Museum, which houses exhibitions, hosts lectures and offers  a free self-guided walking tour.
