Being in Seminole County has plenty of perks, but don’t take our word for it—just ask Chad Crawford. As the host of How to do Florida, Chad knows his way around the state, but he loves Seminole County for being his oasis right in the middle of everything.

Escape the crowds and traffic of Orlando to have a real Florida adventure in Seminole County. Get up close and personal with exotic animals at the Central Florida Zoo. Experience the great outdoors with exciting airboat rides or world-class fishing on charter boats. Be a cowboy for a day with horseback riding and ranch tours. There are many adventurous possibilities when you take a trip to the WILD side of Orlando.

While Seminole County is far enough away to relax, it’s still close to Orlando’s Famous theme parks like Disney, SeaWorld & Universal Studio.  And it’s also just a hop, skip and a jump away from some of Florida’s most beautiful beaches like Daytona & New Smyrna. Not to mention, “space-cases” can experience the wonders of the famed Kennedy Space Center Visitors Complex and the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame in Cape Canaveral. And Seminole County’s convenient location between all of this is even better with easy access to highways and the Orlando-Sanford Intl. Airport. If that still isn’t enough for you, hotels in Seminole County are up to one-third the price of Orlando resorts.

So, what are you waiting for? Visit Seminole and experience Orlando’s Oasis.
