If you’re heading to Orlando, it’s a good bet that Disney will be occupying most of your time, but you’d be remiss not to see this area’s other cool offerings during your time in central Florida. For all the flack it gets (somewhat unfairly; who doesn’t love a good theme park?), it’s home to some of the world’s best shopping (hello, antique row!), a history-loaded 16th-century Spanish settlement, and believe it or not, the horse capital of the world (move over, Lexington). Here are three places we recommend you explore beyond the family-friendly entertainment: West Palm Beach, Ocala, and St. Augustine. All a short drive away from Orlando, they’re full of attractions you didn’t know you were missing. Read on for why they made our list for Orlando’s best day trips.
