Orlando may be best known for our world-famous theme parks and attractions that can be enjoyed year-round but there's a wild side that you don't get to see every day. Scenic waterways, lush woodlands and amazing wildlife offer unexpected thrills and outdoor experiences waiting to be discovered in Orlando.
National Travel Correspondent Sarah Sekula has experienced many of Orlando's most unique outdoor adventures. From a roller coaster zip line to flying in a hang glider, she shares her amazing adventures that go way beyond a typical day of theme park rides and shows.
