Best Way to Discover the History of the City Beautiful From the Comfort of Your Chair

While there are plenty of places to get a decent view of local history, from the Winter Park Scenic Boat Tour to the Orange County Regional History Center, sometimes you just want to soak it all up from the comfort of your own home. Which is why the Historic Orlando groups on Facebook are so great. Without even having to put on pants, you can check out vintage photographs, postcards, advertisements, yearbook snapshots and more from the vast pre-Disney era. Central Florida has a tendency to be a bit amnesiac when it comes to history, so this free dose of nostalgia provides great insight into our shared (or adopted) past.
