Is there anything else beyond Disney World? Yes!
Since we live outside of the Orlando area, we have been to quiet a few places beyond the park. Of course there is SeaWorld and Universal, but there a couple places that are worth a drive away from the mouse.
Wordspring Discovery Center – is the place to discover the amazing story of the Bible. Encounter people, languages, and cultures you’ve never seen before. It’s about the art and science of translation. It’s about how God’s Word carries hope around the world to people in their own language. It’s an interactive cultural adventure! Discover how the Bible was preserved and shared throughout history.
My princesses and I have been here quiet a few times. I’m still in awe of how many languages STILL don’t have God’s word translated yet. This place is a great place to stir your heart to pray for these people and for God’s word to spread. They often have special happenings going on. We love to go around Christmas time when they are doing Christmas around the world.
A place hidden in a beautiful part of Orlando is the Leu Gardens –
America’s largest Camellia collection outside California
Three acres of idea gardens for weekend projects
The largest formal rose garden in Florida.
A house museum dating from the 1880’s.
Two acre Tropical Stream Garden
Vegetable and Herb Garden
Palm, bamboo and cycad gardens
We took my mom there when she was visiting and had a great time. There’s A LOT of shade and it’s great place to just take a break and take in all of God’s amazing beauty.
So from a local girl, there are my tips for things to do outside the parks.
Thanks Jennifer for hosting Destination Disney. It was a lot of fun while it lasted.
