Before we get wild at EDC Orlando, it’s time to think about activities to do before or after the festival.
We’re just weeks away from EDC Orlando 2017 at Tinker Field. Based on the festival map, this year’s event will be the biggest so far in terms of space and the addition of the Boombox Art Car.
Those of you taking a vacation to enjoy EDC Orlando may find yourselves looking to try some activities outside of the Tinker Field. Orlando is home to DisneyWorld, Universal Studios Florida, and other theme parks. Unfortunately, these huge and wonderful theme parks come with big price tags and long wait times. Rather than spend $100 or more at those parks, consider our list of adventures and activities under $100!
