In Orlando, seeking advice on what do when it rains

Here’s a reader who is in Orlando expecting some rain:

Any recommendations on what to do on a rainy day in the Orlando area? Any other advice on what to do that’s worthwhile around here? Trying to avoid some of the common tourist places and hopefully find something actually worthwhile to do. No kids – Age range from 22-27. 6 of us. Up for anything interesting, whether it be a great bar/ restaurant or something educational and/or interesting.

I, personally don’t know too much other than what I’ve posted on this blog (you can find more but this will get you started:

Beyond Orlando (maybe 20-year-olds would enjoy the Walt Disney World Speedway where people get to drive a NASCAR-style stock car?)

Orlando hotel advice (the comments have some restaurant and other suggestions)

Also, I did scrounge up a little advice and hopefully some of you reading this can leave more:

Check out Waterford Lakes near UCF, a mega shopping plex with all sorts of different things, a million restaurants, monster movie theatre, etc. Also, the Mall at Millenia is gorgeous and only a couple years old.

I always recommend Universal Citywalk as an awesome way to spend a Friday or Saturday evening. And actually, you can go to citywalk wet or dry… lots of indoor places to hang, Margaritaville is fun, there’s a dueling piano bar that is great…hit up citywalk and you won’t be disappointed.

The Science Center downtown is cool if you are into that sort of thing as well. They’ve pumped a lot of money into it.

    Unless there’s a thunderstorm, the parks stay open in the rain … and they’re pretty empty. Put on a rain poncho and have fun! You are in your 20’s! Don’t let a little rain ruin your day! Oh, and the coasters go a LOT faster in the rain. Trust me.
