Orlando is stereotypically known for its crowds, traffic, and bustling theme parks—the perfect place for on-the-go family vacations. But what if you find yourself on the other side of the scale?
Believe it or not, Orlando also has an equal amount of relaxing, laid-back activities fit for solo travelers! From coffee shops to natural springs and even movies under the stars—we’ve rounded up the best places to go for explorers in the Orlando area.
There’s nothing better than sipping on your go-to cafe drink while reading a book or getting some work done in a local café—especially for introverts. You have the option to socialize with those around you or pop in your headphones for a quiet, solo coffee date.
Bynx, Lobos, Craft & Common, Stardust Video & Coffee, and Blackbird Coffee & Comics are a few coffee shops fit for introverts. But, if you’re looking for even more coffee shop recommendations, check out these top coffee shops in Orlando.
Do you love books? Could you spend hours walking up and down the aisles of bookstores? Is reading your favorite pastime? There’s an abundance of local libraries and bookstores that can spice up your everyday reading time.
Find yourself a new book from the Writer’s Block Bookstore, then hunt down a hidden reading nook in a near by library like the Winter Park Public Library or one of UCF Libraries.
Florida is home to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, but don’t underestimate the natural springs. Two of our favorites are the Wekiwa Springs State Park and the Devil’s Den Spring. Rent a paddleboard, kayak, or even snorkel—no matter how you explore the springs, you’re sure to come across some incredible sea life. During the weekdays, this makes for the perfect introvert activity.
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.
