Orlando Science Center

Orlando Science Center is a glistening structure that looks like the product of a meeting between Greek-Roman architects and Star Trek engineers. The analogy applies to the activities inside as well. The museum strives to teach kids (and adults) about classical science using modern, hands-on, sometimes high-tech activities. The museum houses themed exhibit halls where patrons can explore the human body, modern technology, the solar system and other topics. The exhibits often change, so you can always learn something new. Its eight-story CineDome is billed as one of the world's largest movie theaters where they show large-format nature/technology films.

Burberry

Initially Burberry had several locations only in England, but now it is around the world. Recipient of the British Royal Warrant for inventing the gabardine fabric as well as coming up with the concept of a trench-coat, the company still pushes the envelope in sourcing new materials and designs for clothes. The store houses clothing for the working men as well as for the ladies. Plus there is the children's section too. Also offering fragrances and accessories like handbags and eye-wear, the store believes in utility just as much as design.
