Central Florida became known as the nation’s playground as the home of Walt Disney World Resorts, Universal Studios, SeaWorld, and Legoland Florida (as well as a host of smaller amusement parks, like Gatorland and The Holy Land Experience). The reputation extends to the region’s academics as well; the University of Central Florida was ranked 9th in Playboy’s 2011 list of top party schools, and was a top-5 contender for best counterculture culture schools in America.
Orlando gets most of the attention in the area for its wide array of nightlife, but the House of Mouse is actually located in nearby Kissimmee if you’re looking to wander the Magic Kingdom after enjoying some choice buds. To the east, one can slow it down with a lazy day on Daytona Beach or speed things up at the Daytona Raceway, and there’s more than one way to get spaced out with a visit to the Kennedy Space Center. For nature lovers, natural springs await in the surrounding areas offering crystal-blue serenity. Check out the dispensary directory for where to purchase cannabis around Central Florida.
