    I used to stay near Winter Park when I lived in Orlando. I never had the chance to do a scenic boat tour.

  4. That looks beautiful. I plan on going to Orlando soon. I will have to check this out. My husband and I wanted to do something that wasn’t kid theme park related. This is a great option.

    Best part of Florida is the small canals that connect the lakes. Great photos.
