For those that live in Orlando, they are bound to find that their friends outside of Orlando in other states are likely to ask if they go to Disney World or Universal Studios all the time.  They will also ask if they work in the tourist industry, assuming that people in Orlando does nothing but entertain tourists, but also implying that there is nothing to do but see Walt Disney World or Universal Studios.  While the major tourist attractions have helped shape Orlando into what it is today, we cannot forget all the other local Orlando attractions, many that came before the big tourist attractions, that paved the way for the “big guys” to come in.  These local Orlando attractions provide entertainment for the locals that have made the Orlando area their home.  Let’s face it, you can’t go to the big attractions all the time.  Sometimes you want to race go-carts, take a boat tour, or see the zoo.
