Take a stroll on the Riverwalk, learn how to sail or take a riverboat cruise to view the city from a different perspective. Keen anglers will appreciate an opportunity to fish on the lake, as it offers an abundance of Bass and Bluegill. Alternatively, enjoy a stroll through Sanford’s historic downtown streets. Colourful Victorian residences flank tree-lined streets, harking back to a bygone era. The centre boasts art, antiques and handicraft shops which host a treasure trove of unusual gifts. All the family can enjoy a day at Central Florida Zoo and Botanical Gardens. In addition to the 500 animals and over 200 species, visitors can cool off in the Wharton-Smith Tropical Splash Ground or zip through the air on an aerial adventure.
