Ranked by Forbes as one of the top 22 vacation destinations in the United States, Orlando is a world-famous travel destination. Families flock to The City Beautiful for its collection of theme parks and other kid-friendly attractions.

However, travelers of all ages — about 60 million of them to be exact — enjoy exploring this centrally located Sunshine State city. Thanks to its proximity to both the Gulf and Atlantic coasts and neighboring attractions, Orlando boasts a long list of things to do, making it a top choice for travelers without kids in tow. 

Here are 12 fun things for adults to do in Orlando (besides theme parks).

Embark on an Outdoor Adventure

Whether celebrating a honeymoon, anniversary or just because, here are four romantic things to do during an adults-only escape to Orlando.

  • If you and your significant other need a relaxing experience, My Beer Spa has you covered. Soak in a hot tub, kick back with a beer and feel the stress melt away.
  • Get a taste of the Orlando food scene at one of these restaurants, recommended by local foodies.
  • Enjoy 360° views of Orlando from the iconic 400-foot-tall observation wheel at ICON Park. Enjoy breathtaking views of Central Florida in all directions, with sights of downtown Orlando, theme parks and even Cape Canaveral. For extra romance, consider booking a private capsule or enjoy a glass of champagne while taking in the views.
  • Catch a Broadway show at Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts.
