Welcome to Central Florida- the “Unknown”
Thank you for visiting my website and taking the time to read my post on what this true wonderland has to offer. When I first visited Central Florida, I truly did not appreciate all that this popular destination has to offer. Whether you visit or live here, the first thing people do is to look up the things to do in Orlando (via google ‘university’) you will always get the same results – Disney, Universal, Sea World, Gators and so on. But there is so much more to do and see in Florida which is the ‘’Unknown” to those who visit with their families so that they can create memories one would look back on for years to come.
The Seven Wonders of Florida
For those who want to learn more of the ‘’out of Disney’’ attractions consider the following landmarks:
The Overseas Highway also known as the southernmost leg of U.S. Highway 1 and the contemporary wonder. It stretches from Miami to Key West, making it one of the most memorable road trip.
Florida’s Coral Reef. Formed some five to seven thousand years ago. According to some estimates, reef growth is slow ranging from one to sixteen feet every thousand years.
Bok Tower stands tall and named after Edward Bok and in memory of his grandmother. Also, known as the ”singing ” tower.
Everglades National Park -The Everglades marks the nation’s one and only subtropical wilderness and a place where few dare to venture. Although it is often pictured as a huge swamp only inhabited by large alligators and snakes, it could be considered more of a forest the perfect habitat of wide range of birds and forms of wildlife.
Kennedy Space Center- the name of NASA’s launch operation center was re-named to honor John F Kennedy, United States 35th president.
The Skyway Bridge over four miles long is an architectural delight. It connects two counties namely Pinellas and Manatee, Soaring 183 feet above Tampa Bay.
Historic St Augustine – Nation’s oldest town which survived five centuries of history, over 435 years.
The bright side of Central Florida – Why would you live here?
Many Visitors who experienced what Florida has to offer never want to leave. They become residents or so called Snow Birds who escape the winters here in the sunshine!
The Walt Disney Company has turned central Florida into a real gold mine paradise. The company opened their doors in 1971. Since then the Orlando area has become Disney’s playground for magic, nostalgia, and designed experiences. The mid-1990s, was a mile stone for Disney experimentation with a self-contained neighborhood, a planned community called Celebration. Whilst real people bought properties and live in Celebration, it was the start of many other ”designer neighborhoods” of Central Florida. These communities accommodate all kinds of residential lifestyles, designs of properties and geographical diversity. From custom-built designs to a wide range of America’s top property developers bringing true masterpieces to the property forum.
