Looking for cheap activities for men!

You all have always been a massive help in the past....

Taking a group of 12 men down to Orlando for a Men's softball tournament this weekend. We are going to have 1 free day... what things would you suggest that we do?

The only things I have ever done is Disney World... so I need suggestions!

Thanks!

If you wanted to keep it Disney-centric, I would also suggest drinking around the world at Epcot. Or, Downtown Disney has Fuegos- a fairly decent cigar bar that we go to every time we're in town. The men enjoy the cigars (which sure, are a bit pricey), and their women love the mojitos.

If they're into golf, there's quite a few decent golf courses in the area, as well as heading to the coast to go fishing. Or Gatorland if you want to see some gators. Or the Holy Land Experience (never been, but have seen ads for it).

Awesome thought!

Is the Holy Land Experience worth it? I would love to go to Jerusalem - tons of history.

where are you staying?

sometimes the resort/hotel might have stuff for them to do.

do they like the internet - most of the libraries in Florida have free internet and they expect out of towners to use it -

here is list from orlando on what to do

http://www.visitorlando.com/things-to-do/

it is pretty long so be prepared

here is kissimmee (really closer to WDW than Orlando)

Go to the cruise night at Old Towne on 192 on Saturday night (a smaller one on Friday night) if you like looking at cars. Price: FREE

Seralago is next to Old Town. You could always try the sling shot 'ride' there or the sky coaster but they do cost you. http://myoldtownusa.com/ride/

Could always try Gatorland for the day: http://www.gatorland.com/
then visit Old Town in the evening.

Some in your group many want to play golf. Go to golfnow.com to get some deals on that. Lots of great courses in the area.
