Exploring the Butler Chain of Lakes is something few locals take advantage of and even less tourist know about. The Butler Chain of Lakes is no secret. Along the lakes you will find luxury estate after estate. You'll even be able to coast on by Shaq's massive abode from the water.
Once you get over the astounding homes, get your feet wet - literally. Strap on a wakeboard to your feet, jump in the water, and enjoy the exhilarating rush.
Luckily for me, I have friends who own boats, all of whom wakeboard and who can help out first timers. It appears as an easy task, however, I guarantee you will plummet face first a few times before you stand up on that board. Once you get it, you've got it. You'll soon become addict to the rush and to the thrill of the sport.
Don't have friends with a boat or are not local to Orlando? Don't let that stop you. You can rent a boat, a board, and all the essentials you will need. Tip: Stop at Publix before you head out and bring lunch. You'll be out on the water most of the day.
