When you think of Orlando, you’re probably imagining big roller coasters, certain character experiences and never-ending lines. You don’t have to just visit the parks when you take a trip to this great city; in fact, you can plan a fun vacation without one roller coaster involved. We sat down with FastPark & Relax manager Katylyn Weems to get suggestions for a Disney-free Orlando spring break.

Katy, we all love Disney and Universal Studios, but we’re ready to see the rest of the city. What are the must-see attractions for visitors avoiding the amusement parks?
The Mall of Millenia is a great place to shop, whether you call Orlando home or are visiting. You can visit Titanic: the Experience, a museum that lets visitors explore artifacts and a recreation of the famous ship. Wonder Works was built to resemble an upside-down laboratory, and you can also visit the attraction’s Outta Control Magic Comedy Dinner Show, Ripley’s Believe It or Not museum has two floors of oddities on display. And, if you’re a daredevil, you can visit iFly Orlando for an indoor sky diving experience.

What if we want to get outside and enjoy the beautiful weather?
At Boggy Creek Airboat Rides, you are sure to witness some of the most spectacular scenery that Florida has to offer. After you see our city from the water, go to Bob’s Balloon Flights for a bird’s eye view of our wildlife and scenery.

Stop by Buena Vista Water Sports and Paradise Cove for jet skiing, waterskiing, wakeboarding, knee boarding, tubing, stand-up paddle boarding and kayaking. If you enjoy the water you should definitely visit Aquatica, Wet n Wild or SeaWorld’s Discovery Cove water parks.

Where should we grab dinner after a long day of walking around Orlando?
We have a lot of great restaurants in Orlando! Here are a few of my favorite spots: Dave and Buster’s, Maggiano’s Little Italy, The Boheme, Margaritaville, Bubba Gump Shrimp Co., Morton’s Steak House, Taverna Opa or The Capital Grille.

What about nightlife? Where would you go to catch a show or see a concert?
Downtown Disney is an outdoor shopping, dining and entertainment complex. There, you can see Cirque du Soleil or watch a show at The House of Blues while you eat dinner. Universal City Walk is Orlando’s hottest nightlife spot! It has night clubs, live music and fun for the whole family.

The Blue Man Group is a popular show, and you can see a ballet or musical at the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts. Check out the Amway Center to see what shows are playing during your visit. It hosts Orlando Magic games and concerts or shows for all ages.

Also, everyone in Orlando is excited about our new professional soccer team, the Orlando City! Soccer games start in March.

What’s your favorite thing to do during the spring?
I enjoy horseback riding and visiting parks throughout the state. I also love to just take a walk on the beach with my dog.
