The city isn’t always known as the most romantic place, but there are still plenty of things for couples to do in Orlando to make it an enticing getaway with your significant other.
Sitting in front of Disney World’s Magic Kingdom with your significant under, holding hands, getting ready to embark on an experience known round-the-world, you will feel as if you are living a fairytale but you are not.
This fond memory, along with the rest of the encounters on this list, will stick with you in your happiest of times. It is a blessing to share a vacation and travel with the one you love, so take advantage of your time and plan your trip before you arrive!
Below, we have detailed a few of the most tenderhearted things for couples to do in Orlando on your romantic getaway!
7 Romantic Things for Couples to do in Orlando
Without further ado, here are the best things to do in Orlando for couples:
1. Take a one day cruise to Bahamas swimming pigs
Grab a few spots on our swimming pigs tours to Pig Beach to spend an afternoon with the most lovable Exuma pigs in the Bahamas your heart can handle.
The entire trip starts with a magnificent flight over a region of the Bahamas that astronauts have called the most beautiful glimpse of our planet from their perspective in space. If that, coupled with the luxury of a private plane isn’t romantic, we don’t know what is.
Once you arrive, you will board your private boat tour around the remote islands of the Exuma Cays. One of the many stops will be at Pig Island before the rush of the ferry crowd arrives on their day trips. You will experience Bahamas’ most famous beach virtually in solitude. That is a priceless advantage and easily one of the most underrated things for couples to do in Orlando excursions.
Afterward, we will boat you around to all the other incredibly awe-inspiring natural attractions of the Bahamas before heading home to Florida at sunset.
A mini day trip to Bahamas vacation aboard our Florida to Bahamas air charter is one of the really fun things to do in Orlando for adults looking for a day excursion.
2. Take an Orlando city tour via tandem bicycle
When you think of Orlando, you probably think about the glitz and glam of its theme parks, but little did anyone know the downtown city of Orlando is quite quaint with neighborhood streets covered with trees and an ambiance you wouldn’t imagine.
Matter of fact, the city was recently named number one United States city in the world for recreation. It has over 150 miles of paved bike trails through virtually every part of the city.
For a nature-heavy experience, venture out of the city (about 20 minutes) to the forests, lakes, and canals of Winter Park.
Along the Urban Bike Trail, there are museums like the Orlando Museum of Art you can stop for a rest and bite to eat.
Whether it is a self-guided tour or with an expert of the city, a tandem ride through the city can be one of the most silly things for couples to do in Orlando.
3. Take a helicopter tour of the Everglades
The traditional way to tour the Everglades is via an airboat which propels itself inches above the swampy waters of the tropical wetlands. For adrenaline junkies, you can also kayak through the alligator-infested murky waters, however, that doesn’t sound like something to do for couples looking for a romantic experience.
Instead, you can go on a romantic helicopter tour over the Everglades with your significant other. For a better chance at seeing more wildlife and a more tender moment, try to book your tour as close to sunrise or sunset as possible.
A tour through the Everglades, whether by air or kayak, will forever be one of the best things to do in Orlando for adults.
4. Watch the sunset from Daytona Beach
Daytona Beach, for one month in the spring, is the craziest place to be in Florida. It is hard to ever imagine it being romantic at all. However, visit Daytona anytime other than the spring and you will realize it is a charming little place and quiet enough to enjoy the sunset in solitude with the one you love.
Daytona Beach is just over an hour from Orlando, so, whether you are renting a vehicle or taking a taxi, make sure you give yourself enough time to make it and make sure to factor in rush hour!
A magical sunset from Daytona Beach is one of the fun things to do in Orlando at night. It is a charming experience to share with a significant other.
5. Share a moment inside Walt Disney World Resort
Walt Disney World is not just for children! We REPEAT: Walt Disney World is NOT just for children and families. The magic kingdom is full of captivating memories for people of all ages, but especially for couples. The fictitious magic in the air sometimes feels infectious.
The best part of a visit to Disney World is at night when the lights go off and there is a huge firework display over Cinderella’s distinguished castle. Cap off your night with a magical presentation of sights and sounds that not only children will remember for a long time to come.
Everyone knows the nightly Walt Disney World firework show is on of the most enchanting things to do in Orlando at night — especially if sharing the moment with your one you love.
6. Saddle up for a trail ride at Hidden Palms Ranch
Hidden Palms Ranch offers private horse trails and experiences for people of all expertise levels. Even if you are a novice horse rider or never tried it in your life, they will work with you to ensure safety and make sure you have the best time.
It is one of our favorite things for couples to do in Orlando who are ready to unplug and escape the hustle and bustle of the busy city streets. Immerse yourself in nature and enjoy a truly unique experience while you do.
A sunset ride on horseback is a classically romantic date night and is one of the most picturesque things for couples to do in Orlando.
7. Enjoy a leisurely boat tour around Venetian-style Canals
So, they might not be the canals of Venice, but a boat tour around the city’s canals is still one of our favorite things for couples to do in Orlando.
Although most locals know about the Winter Park Scenic Boat Tour, most tourists don’t. The admission onto the pontoon ride is only $14USD and well worth the price of admission. Whether you want to pay attention to the Venetian-style canals, the waterfront mansions, or on each other, it will all be beautiful just the same.
You can never go wrong with a canal cruise. It is truly one of the most intimate things to do in Orlando for couples.
