There are a number of quiet towns on the outskirts of Orlando, in Central East Florida. When planning a trip to Orlando bed and breakfast, consider one located outside of town; it’s a wonderful way to experience all the Orlando area has to offer.
And that is plenty. SeaWorld presents incredible shows that display the intelligence and beauty of orca whales, sea lions, dolphins and a variety of other animals, from pot-bellied pigs to tropical birds. It features thrilling rides and numerous restaurants, and is something to experience, at least once in a lifetime. The same goes for DisneyWorld and Epcot Center. If you have never been, go. Spend a day marveling at these theme parks. Then return to the luxury and peace of an Orlando area bed and breakfast.
Maitland and Winter Park are northeast of Orlando – an area full of lakes, walking, and biking trails. After experiencing the sometimes dizzying worlds of Walt Disney and his brethren, it is a delight to wander down the historic streets of Winter Park and Maitland.
In Winter Park, visit the Albin Polasek Museum and Sculpture Park, which showcases a startling variety of photography, paintings, and sculpture. Then visit the Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of American Art, where you’ll see an impressive collection of pottery, paintings and decorative art, as well as the world’s largest collection of works by Louis Comfort Tiffany.
The Maitland Historical Museum features a number of revolving exhibits and is home to a fascinating Telephone Museum. The Maitland Arts Center – created in 1937 as an art colony – offers art instruction, gallery exhibits, and art programming. It is also worth a visit simply to admire its architecture – a rare “Mayan Revival” design.
Ask your Orlando area bed and breakfast innkeepers to recommend favorite eateries and cafes, and get to know the real Orlando, Florida.
