Let’s face it: going out in Central Florida lately is like stepping into an oven – and it’s not even officially summer yet!

With the heat index hitting triple digits every day, being outside is the last place many want to be. To help you beat the sweltering heat, here’s a list of indoor, air-conditioned activities you can experience around Orlando.
