Excursions from Orlando

Florida Everglades

A (very) long day trip takes guests all the way south–bear in mind this is around a four-hour drive though (320km/200 miles). For most, it is worth it to go see this magnificent natural wonder and have the chance to explore this amazing water system. As the third-largest national park in the US, the Everglades contains the country’s biggest mangrove swamp, housing more than 350 species of birds, 300 species of fresh and saltwater fish and 40 species of mammals.

Homosassa Springs

An increasingly popular excursion takes guests to this fabulous state park to swim with manatees, which are amazingly gentle creatures. Many tours also include an airboat ride. Visitors can see the Homosassa Springs Wildlife Park and take a leisurely boat ride down Pepper Creek. Entering the park afterwards, you can see a number of animals native to Florida, as well as manatees in the special tanks. This is about a 90-minute drive (160km/100 miles) from Orlando.
