Planning a family vacation is rarely a simple job, especially if you have a teenager or two who tend to be choosy about what they like to see and do, to put it lightly. Thankfully, Orlando is chock-full of attractions, activities, and things to see that even the pickiest teenager won’t say no to. Here are just a couple things that are sure to spark the interest of your teen:
Explore Florida’s Natural Wonders
Florida is full of alligators. To get a close and safe look at these giant prehistoric-looking reptilians, there’s Gatorland. This attraction is home to hundreds of alligators and the famous “Gator Jumparoo” show that features alligators jumping clear out of the water to snatch food from a trained professional’s hand. If something more action-packed is what your teen desires, try an airboat tour. These tours take you through some of the swamps surrounding Orlando and get you up close and personal with nature.
Take a Glimpse into the World of Space Exploration
The Kennedy Space Center is located just a short drive from Orlando and is the place to be for a look into the NASA space program. The Space Center is home to a variety of exhibits designed answer some of the biggest questions about space exploration. Be sure to check out the IMAX Theater while you’re there for an immersive movie experience that will make it feel like you’re actually an astronaut! If you have a teen who’s interested in space, there’s no better place to visit.
Orlando has a great number of different things to try including indoor skydiving and kart racing, world-class shopping and dining, midway entertainment, dinner theater shows, escape game rooms, and so much more. Hopefully these ideas spark an interest with the picky teen in your family and will help to make your vacation unforgettable. The Rosen Inn makes it easy to see all that Orlando has to offer with its central location right on International Drive.
