Day trips are always fun but it is more fun when you are going for day trips where you have to travel less and visit more places. Orlando is one of such places where you can have some great day trips with beautiful and surprising views backed with some great adventure where you can go in less than 2 hours travel. Here is Travelila listing Best Day Trips from Orlando.
Crystal River Springs
This place is heaven for those who love wildlife and love to know about them. You can have some thrilling experience by a face-to-face underwater encounter with an endangered 1,500-pound West Indian manatee. This place is a gem and a delight for photographers and nature lovers. Manatees are present in a huge volume at Three Sisters Springs while you can also go hiking for about 7 miles. Crystal River is one of the very few places where you can swim with Manatee- The sea cows. You can also visit Blue Spring State Park which is about 50 minutes from Orlando to see more Manatee.
Kennedy Space Center
Kennedy space center is less than an hour’s ride from Orlando. Kennedy Space Center at Cape Canaveral is the place having the largest collection of rockets and space equipment. You can also learn new things along with a fun time. The place is equipped with rocket exhibits and launch pads, astronaut encounters, 3D IMAX films, and a poignant memorial to NASA’s fallen heroes. Famous attractions here include Shuttle Launch Experience; the 30-minute Rocket Garden tour; and the two-hour bus tour of the Kennedy Space Center.
Get ready for some beachside action at Daytona Beach. A trip to Orlando is incomplete without visiting Daytona Beach where you can spend the day soaking up the sun and surf. Daytona Beach is the birthplace of NASCAR racing and is a kind of spring-breakers haunt nowadays. This is one of those few beaches where you can drive along. Famous attractions here include Bike Week in March, Biketoberfest in October, and Daytona 500 in February.

Returning from Orlando without visiting a theme park? It is not acceptable at all.
