UCFloridaIn the world of family vacation spots, Orlando, Florida makes the list of top destinations again and again. Who doesn’t love Mickey Mouse, Harry Potter , or Shamu? Not only do theme parks entice and excite visitors, so does the University of Central Florida. With 58,000 currently enrolled students, UCF is the second largest university in the nation and is considered a “Best Value” by Kiplinger’s Personal Finance.

Students hail from 67 Florida counties, all 50 states, and 141 countries. You’ve got to admit that when it comes to planning a Florida family vacation, if you’ve got college-bound teens in the house, it only makes sense to tack a campus visit on to the vacay agenda.

UCF offers tours Monday through Friday (with some exceptions) at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Registration is required. (Register online by clicking here. For a list of hotels near campus, click here)
