Embrace your inner kid at Orlando's theme parks by day, and enjoy gelato and a meal at one of six eateries – including Bice Ristorante, an Italian venue – by night.
Experience Naples' calm crystal blue waters and white sand beaches at Naples Grande Beach Resort, a luxury property set on 23 waterfront acres.

For those who have ever dreamed about what it would be like to blast off into space, a trip to the Kennedy Space Center is a must-do.

However, many people are surprised when they become fully engrossed in their visit and end up spending most of the day at the center. Things to see include the rocket garden, the real Space Shuttle Atlantis, the Heroes and Legends exhibit, and the Journey to Mars exposition, along with many others.
