Road Trip To The Beach

The beautiful thing about living in Orlando, Florida, is the location. Being almost directly in the state’s center, we have easy access to beaches on both sides. So pick a good playlist, roll down your windows, and hit the road. Road tripping to the beach—some of our favorites being Daytona and New Smyrna—is the perfect city escape for Orlando introverts. 

Outside of the Orlando theme park bubble, you’ll find many activities fit for introverts. One of our favorites is museums. If you agree, then you’re in luck because Orlando is packed with a variety of unique museums to add to your must-see list. Museums like the Orlando Museum of Art, the Orlando Science Center, and the Kennedy Space Center.

Touring these spots on your own allows you to quietly soak up each exhibit on your own time—every introvert’s dream.
