Are you planning an upcoming trip to Orlando, Florida? Looking for some local attractions and activities outside the theme parks? We at Carl’s Van Rentals want to give you a few destination ideas to make your Orlando vacation memorable.

1. Orlando Magic Basketball

Sports fans may enjoy an evening of professional basketball at the downtown Amway Center—home of the Orlando Magic. Their season typically lasts October through June, so if you’re in town, consider checking out a game.

2. Gatorland

Florida is known for its reptilian resident—the alligator. If you want to see some Florida gators up close or take a plunge down the Screamin’ Gator Zip Line, then visit Gatorland of Orlando.

3. Florida Film Festival

If you plan to be in Orlando between April 10 and 19, 2015, then you may want to see what’s happening at the Florida Film Festival. Featured films are to be announced mid-March. The festival takes place throughout Central Florida. Maybe you and some friends can get a minivan rental and enjoy this great FL event together!

4. Lazy Moon Pizza

In case your idea of a good time involves food, then take an evening drive in a minivan rental to Lazy Moon Pizza. This pizzeria invites customers to come eat, drink, and just relax for a while—you are on vacation, right?

5. Back to Nature Wildlife Refuge

This attraction is perfect for animal-lovers! The Back to Nature Wildlife Refuge is a Florida non-profit whose primary mission is to rescue, rehabilitate, and help animals re-enter the wild. Check out the unique animals currently housed at the refuge on a tour, or you may also be interested in their special events.
