Features
Quirky/offbeat, Popular with locals, Family-friendly

A local institution that dates back to before the roller coasters, the Orlando Science Center doesn't look its 60 years—in fact, it has a notably futuristic appearance. Inside, four floors of interactive scientific experiments, simulators, and high-tech exhibits capture the imagination of kids and adults. Visitors can experience a variety of location-specific phenomena, including everything from feeding alligators to the effects of a Category One hurricane. Huge movie theaters have 3-D adventures in the deep sea or high above the Earth and there's a full schedule of live science challenges, so even a day of educational improvement doesn't feel too far removed from the theme park experience.
