Most people head to Orlando for theme park thrills, but the city is bustling with smaller attractions to help you fill an empty half-day or lazy afternoon.
Mini golf is one of the most popular options around Orlando, with ample options on International Drive alone. The city’s major theme park players offer their own mini golf courses as well, so you’ll find a good game on any side of town.
1. Gator Golf, International Drive
Gator Golf on International Drive is the perfect place to go if you want a little taste of what Florida might be without all the theme park buzz. The highlight of the golf course, as the name suggests, comes in the form of native Florida gators.
You can see and pet some of the smaller gators at the front, but you have to make your way to the back of the course to see the really big gators. If you want to see the big alligators without playing a round, you can do so for a reduced $5 admission.
