In a city like Orlando full of the best entertainment and theme parks, you might think you have to do a little digging to get to historical places of interest. You do in fact have to dig a little, especially when talking about historical tours. It’s not that those places aren’t there, but Orlando is an entertainment tourist hot spot. Even the museums feature all kinds of modern concepts. Don’t worry, however, because all the digging has been done for you. Here are the top 3 historical tours for you and your family to take while visiting Orlando FL.
Are you familiar with Jack Kerouac?
He is a very famous Beat Generation author who wrote ‘On The Road,’ among many other titles. This was perhaps his most famous work. When I was in college, I took a class devoted entirely to the works of Jack Kerouac. That was one interesting semester, and you can have one exciting visit to the Jack Kerouac House located at 1418 Clouser Avenue.

It’s not going to take you long to take a look around, but you will enjoy the quick self-guided tour. It’s going to be neat checking everything out and thinking about when Kerouac lived there. You might even picture him like the reviews say sitting on the back stoop and eating tangerines. If you have read works by Jack Kerouac and are a fan, to should stop by this historical place of interest in Orlando FL.
The next historical place of interest in Orlando is the National Vietnam War Museum. The museum is located at 3400 North Tanner Road. Entrance is free, but of course, donations are welcome. A tour guide shows you around, and reviews say that the veteran guides are very informative. Plus, at the end of the tour, you are invited to have a cold one on the house.
It would be really interesting to take a tour of the National Vietnam War Museum. Then when you get done with that historical tour, you have one more to consider.
Are you ready to find out what it’s going to be?
Titanic, The Artifact Exhibition, is the 3rd historical tour that you might want to take in Orlando. You are given a boarding pass, and that boarding pass has the name of an actual passenger. It is supposedly a really unique experience, and you get to see artifacts from Titanic. This would definitely be one of the stops I would want to make.
The Titanic Artifact Exhibition is located on International Drive. Remember to stop by the National Vietnam War Museum and the Jack Kerouac House, too. Those are three great historical places of interest to mix in with everything else you are doing for fun in Orlando FL. That will add a little spice of a different flavor to your vacation.
