The Winter Park Scenic Boat Tour – Entertaining, Informative and a Visual Delight

The Winter Park Scenic Boat Tour, founded in 1938 and located just 15 minutes north of downtown Orlando, is one of these lovely side trips that combine beautiful scenery, a bit of local history, some close-up exposure to local wildlife and vegetation with a relaxing outing in a slow-moving 18-passenger pontoon boat, all complete with expert (and sometimes humorous) narration provided by the boat's captain. The tour takes you through 3 lakes: Lake Osceola, Lage Virginia and Lake Maitland. On th
