Discovering Orlando 'Off the Beaten Path' has-been the design for the journey and I want to examine the Central aspects of the Sunshine State, and flush out dozens of unexpected and unusual locations in and around Orlando. In my own discoveries of Orlando, I've been working closely with the Orlando Visitor and Convention Bureau, to obtain the input of local experts and work-out a schedule for the two days in Florida, without setting foot after into a theme park.

One of the very first places they proposed was the Orange County Regional History Center, house to the comprehensive and various collections of the Historical Society of Central Florida. My girlfriend learned about cheap by browsing Yahoo. Located in the heart of downtown Orlando in the beautifully restored five-story Orange County Courthouse, The History Center is consistently known since the area's 'Best Museum.' like a court in 1927 when the History Center was created, the arrest was at the top floor, with areas for the jailer and his wife, an infirmary, and separate cellblocks for black women, white men, white women and black men.

With an interesting lineup of ever-changing exhibits on display and traveling exhibits on loan to other services, The Real History Center is among Central Florida's premier attractions. Teachers, people and visitors alike locate a wealth of interesting information, provided in dynamic fashion. From guided tours and 'hands-on record' activities to fun-packed summer camps and active kids' programs, learning is fun for all ages. History Center members can take advantage of the number of particular value-added benefits, including discounts and special event possibilities. The stately center can be designed for event rentals, which range from meetings to wonderful weddings.

The Very First People show takes readers back in time-to observe Paleo-Indians lived in the days before European Contact. First Contact helps guests imagine Indigenous American's response and the changes within their routines due to the arrival of the Spanish. A recreated early 19th century Seminole Settlement provides a look at artifacts of Florida's most famous tribe and a duplicate Florida Pioneer cottage allows curious guests test a Spanish moss-filled mattress and uncover the much-discussed origin of-the term 'Florida Cracker.'

Other lasting exhibits include Cattle and Citrus, Central Florida's first major industries, Tourism, Transportation, Property, Aviation, the influence of Walt Disney, and Central Florida's African-american community. From a reproduction World War II B-17 bomber and a dome featuring more than 150 special Central Florida designs to the outside Heritage Square courtyard, and the restored 1927 Courtroom W, a wealth of experiences and fascinating places awaits visitors for the History Center.
