The Orlando Museum of Art (2416 N. Mills Ave., Orlando, 407-896-4231) began with a group of artists in the 1920s displaying their work. Today, it’s known as one of the best museums in the South.
Kids and adults alike love the Orlando Science Center (777 E. Princeton St., Orlando, 407-514-2000). It’s four floors of pure fun. Check out simulators at Science Park and DinoDigs, where a fossil display is the main attraction. To top it off, the giant refractor telescope at the top of the observatory offers stellar star-gazing.
Next, queue up for whatever’s playing at Orlando Repertory Theatre (1001 E. Princeton St., Orlando, 407-896-7365), which specializes in dazzling young audiences. Classics like “The Neverending Story” and “Junie B. Jones” show throughout the year. By day’s end you will have had hands-on thrills and a few good laughs. Fun stuff, but that’s nothing compared to a sherbet-colored sunset over nearby Lake Formosa.See all Loch Haven Park Attractions »
