I try to avoid Orlando and the whole Disney/theme park complex as much as possible as it has become WAY WAY too big and thus not so much fun. If I have to go through the center of Florida I try to go south of Orlando. But in 2007, we were stuck in Kissimmee for a couple of days and one of the things we did was go on boat rides around the Winter Park Area which is billed as "The Venice of America"
We went from lake to lake, and saw Rollins College, and the Art Museum and several parks from the shore. In one case, we had to back out of the canal because someone else was coming through, and in another instance the three tour boats were almost through the canal and met two other boats coming the other way. The boats closest to the entrance have to back up.
It was an interesting trip and I got a lot of photos
