Guest Blogger: My Dad, Fred, Steers Us to Free Fun in Orlando

By: Dalia Colon


Dalia's note: Everything I know about saving money, I learned from my parents. On their recent visit to Florida, they went in search of affordable fun in Orlando. Here's what my dad turned up. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Fred Wheatt.

The Alternative to Theme Parks: Window-Shopping and Low-Cost Souvenirs

Drive or walk Orlando's 12-mile-long International Drive simply to view weird sites and window-shop. You'll find many hotels, restaurants, architecture galore and great low-cost souvenir stores:

Drive you ride, or catch the I-Ride Trolley. An all-day pass costs just $5.

The trolley runs every 20 minutes. Get on and off to view the sites as you desire. A must-see excursion experience.
