There comes a time in every person’s life where they learn one very important fact: being alone doesn’t have to mean you are lonely. You learn to appreciate moments both large and small and you start to fall in love with someone very important—yourself! Dining out alone offers people-watching opportunities. Hiking alone offers the chance to see things you might have missed if you were with other people. And traveling to new places gives you the chance to see the world on your own terms. If your solo journey is bringing you to Orlando in the very near future, this guide to activities for those traveling without others will ensure that every minute of your stay is filled with fun, excitement, and wonder!
A View from the Sky
As a first-time visitor to Orlando, you may be unsure as to where to start your adventure. There is so much to do and see here that it can be a bit overwhelming, so we advise you to start from the top and work your way down! A ride on Icon Orlando, our 400-foot-tall Ferris wheel located in the middle of it all, will offer views you will fall in love with. While you’re there, why not make a day of it and visit the Orlando Aquarium and Madame Tussauds Orlando Wax Museum as well? Daredevils may want to do a little swinging; the Orlando Starflyer, also a part of Icon, is the world’s tallest swing, topping out at 450 feet in the sky!
Let’s face it, you don’t need extra people slowing you down as you work out your credit cards in the stores of Orlando! This is something you always do better alone and the shops in the Millenia Mall are waiting for you! For those looking for something more than a mall store, something a little more whimsical and out of the ordinary, Etoile Boutique, on Robinson Street, the Owl’s Attic on Corrine Drive, and Something Different on Orange Avenue, offer a choice selection of vintage, eclectic, and funky!
For the Love of Art
There’s plenty of opportunities to explore the artistic side of Orlando during your solo journey, and one of our favorite places to visit on a quiet, rainy day is the Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of American Art! The Tiffany stained glass pieces you find there will brighten up the gloomiest days and perhaps inspire you to take some classes on this art form once you return to real life.
Whatever You Like
Our point is hopefully quite clear: The solo traveler can do anything a family or couple can do! And if you want your vacation to be superior, a stay in one of our Vacome homes will be the cherry on the top of your very delicious sundae. Reserve yours today!
