What to See and Do Along I-95 on the Way to Orlando

May 20, 2018 2:45 pm Published by Comments Off on What to See and Do Along I-95 on the Way to Orlando

Planning a road trip as part of your vacation trip to Orlando not only saves some money and frustration by avoiding flying, but it also gives you the opportunity to see more of the country. If you’re travelling along I-95, you’ll find a fun route that leads to vacation villas in Kissimmee FL, like Fantasy World, as well as the many parks and attractions in Orlando. Here are a few highlights to consider along the way.

With younger children, it may be best to break up your drive over a couple of days. Energy builds up and kids get cranky and restless. If you’ve started up around Connecticut, Wilmington, Delaware, is a great place to stop for a break and burn off some energy. The DuPont Environmental Education Center is located just off exit 6 on I-95. As well as the center itself, it is  one of only a handful of urban wildlife areas in the country. Get those legs moving and blood pumping by taking in the trails for walking and bird-watching along the pond. There is also a garden with native plants. The center and trails are open daily during daylight hours and entrance is free.

For some real history, make a stop in Baltimore at Fort McHenry Monument and National Shrine which inspired Francis Scott Key to write the “Star Spangled Banner”. As well as being able to burn off energy exploring various nooks and crannies of the fort, families can help take down and fold a War of 1812 era flag at various points during the day. There’s an admission fee for adults over 16, but it’s cheaper and faster than going into the heart of the city.

Depending on your schedule and distance, you may want to stay overnight in Richmond, Virginia. There are plenty of museums, restaurants and great views along the James River. Alternatively, if you just want a quick break to stretch the legs, the Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens (exit 83B) have a children’s garden where kids can play and there’s even a tree house for extra fun.

On the border between North and South Carolina, you’ll find a well-known pit stop. All through North Carolina, you’ll see billboards for South of the Border, and its iconic sombrero. Once there, there’s plenty of fun sights and photo opportunities, kitschy fun, as well as three restaurants, a motel, a small amusement park, and even a reptile lagoon.

Georgia is famous for its peach and pecan stands at exits all along the Interstate, so don’t miss out on this famous fruit.

Next thing you know, you’re in Florida. Fantasy World vacation villas in Kissimmee FL are a great place to base your family while staying in Central Florida. You can get there by taking I-4 from I-95. You’ve got easy access to all of the parks and attractions in Orlando, as well as a variety of other attractions and plenty of beaches. Daytona Beach is iconic and worth a visit with its beautiful white sand. Plus, there’s the Daytona Speedway for NASCAR fans. Plus, whether you are on your way down or on your way back up, don’t miss the incredible scenic drive along A1A that takes you along the Atlantic Coast of Florida. The views are worth it and it has easy to access to/from I95. It’s hard not to gaze in awe at nature’s attractions.
