When summertime hits in Orlando, the peak can reach triple digits. If you still want to enjoy all of the fun Orlando has to offer without melting, here are the 5 best ways to beat the summer heat:
Perhaps everybody’s favorite way to beat the summer heat is with a trip to an Orlando water park. The city is home to some of the most thrilling in the nation. Whether you’re looking to be whisked away to a tropical paradise, want to see aquatic animals along the way or are looking for pure thrills, Orlando water parks will certainly keep you cool and entertained. You’ll definitely keep cool at Disney’s Blizzard Beach, enjoy a typhoon of fun at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon, swim with sea creatures at Aquatica and build and splash your way to fun at LEGOLAND Florida Water Park.
Sometimes the temps are so hot even splashing around at a water park is just isn’t enough. When that happens, you have to bring the fun indoors. Luckily, Orlando offers plenty of family-friendly shows including the always popular Blue Man Group. For a little mystery in your day try Sleuth’s Mystery Dinner or cheer on a Medieval Knight at Medieval Times. And who could resist a good laugh at The Outta Control Comedy Dinner Show.
If the kiddos (and you for that matter) can’t quite sit long enough for a show, check out some of Orlando’s best indoor attractions. Explore all of the creatures of the ocean without stepping foot outside at Sea Life Aquarium. Let your little artists color their hearts out at the three-story Crayola Experience. Space cadets will love exploring out-of-this-world fun at Kennedy Space Center and those looking for a thrill can still get one indoors with iFly Indoor Skydiving.
Sometimes the hotel is the destination, and in Orlando, it is no surprise why. Walt Disney World, Universal Orlando, LEGOLAND Florida and SeaWorld Orlando all offer some amazing amenities at their hotels including lush pools, arcades, themed rooms, playgrounds and much more. You’ll have fun at any resort you choose but some of our favorites include LEGOLAND Beach Resort, Disney’s Beach Club resort and Universal’s new budget and family-friendly Aventura Resort.
Spend a hot summer day on the water with one of Orlando’s many water sports. Buena Vista Watersports invite you to get adventurous with a kayak or paddle board rental. For a little relaxation on the water, take a cruise on one of Buena Vista’s Pontoon Boats or enjoy some water thrills with water-ski, wake-board and tubing adventures at Sammy Duval’s Watersports Centre.
