Driving Around Sanford
Whether you fly into Orlando International Airport or are able to get a flight into Orlando Sanford International Airport, grab one of the rental cars in Orlando to get around. Before even thinking about going to Orlando, rent a car in Sanford and drive to the Central Florida Zoo and Botanical Gardens, where you can see over 400 species of animals and ride a miniature railway train. After spending the morning at the zoo, head into downtown Sanford. It has an array of restaurants and shops, and if you`re lucky, you might be able to join up with a beer tasting or restaurant tour. The Sanford Farmers Market is also active on Saturdays. If you want activity more than food and drink, downtown Sanford has a marina where you marvel at the fleet of boats. You can also hike around Lake Monroe or take a boat tour on the lake or down the Wekiva River. The Historic Sanford Memorial Stadium is the first place where Jackie Robinson played professionally, and Sanford has a thriving arts district highlighted by the Wayne Dench Performing Arts Center. Once you have toured Sanford (which could take a while), you can head down Interstate 4 to downtown Orlando. Discover its thriving nightlife, and watch the NBA`s Orlando Magic in the winter and spring. All of these sights are easy to reach in Sanford car rentals.
