Secret Orlando

How do you get the most out of your time in Orlando? Why not ask a Floridian what to see and do? There is always something happening in Orlando to suit everybody's tastes, the most difficult part is finding everything as sadly some of the best local attractions and popular activities aren't highly publicized to visitors.

To help you find some of Orlando's best kept secrets we've asked our team of Orlando natives to recommend their favorite places to visit in Orlando.

Top Hidden Orlando Attractions

Here's a list of the top suggestions from the team.

Pirate's Cove Adventure Golf

Pirate's Cove is an area where you can easily spend 3-4 hours without realizing how fast the time has flown. The main attraction is the mini-golf course. There are about 30 holes which will put your skill to the test. Once you've completed the course, you can relax at the Pirate's Cove restaurant. Pirate's Cove Adventure Golf is opened daily between 9:00 AM and 11:30 PM.

American Ghost Adventures

American Ghost Adventures are a company which organizes tours at some of the most "haunted" places in Orlando. The two main locations are the Greenwood cemetery and the "Last Call" haunted pub. A guide will tell you interesting stories about the history of Orlando. An interesting fact is that the company strongly believes that real ghosts inhabit the two places mentioned earlier. Unfortunately, general tours are only offered a few times a year. However, private tours can be organized.


At Gatorland you can get the chance to see an impressive number of alligators, turtles and lizards. As the name suggests, the main attraction is represented by the alligators. At certain hours of the day experts will feed the animals in front of the public, and they'll even perform some dangerous maneuvers like holding their hands in an alligator's mouth. You can touch and interact with the animals as well. The Gator Zip Line is also great fun and offers a tour from one end of the park to another at an altitude of over 25 meters.

Orlando Baloon Rides

If you've ever dreamed of gently floating above one of the most visited places in the world, this is your chance. Flying in a hot air balloon is something totally out of this world. Admire the landscape and float along beside the birds, this really is a great way to see more of Orlando. The tour takes between 3 and 4 hours so make sure your camera is fully charged! We highly recommend you to book a balloon ride simply because it's awesome.
