  • Walt Disney was right when he said “Florida is a place that captures imagination“. And central Florida, Orlando to be precise, is all imagination personified. Visitors to Orlando have more than one reason to be excited even before they land at either of the two airports, the Orlando international airport or the Orlando Sanford. Be it the Walt Disney World Resort or the Kennedy Space Center or the Universal Studios, Orlando lures tourists from far and wide and offers much more than they come looking for.
  • A staggering 62 million tourists visited Orlando in 2014 surpassing any other US city as the most visited destination of the nation. Give it either to a perennial friendly weather or places of interest for all age groups, the city has undoubtedly grown into a tripper’s paradise. Such a huge influx of tourists, year after year, to this ultimate destination has helped it grow into an extremely hospitable travelers haven.
  • While Walt Disney world resort attracts adults and children alike for an out of this world experience of entertainment, Kennedy Space Center and Universal Studios can certainly be enlisted in the list of places to be seen before one dies. To an already mesmerising display of magical entertainment, Walt Disney World Resort has added New Fantasyland, and The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley at Universal Orlando Resort opened. Visiting Orlando now, you will experience the first full year of these exciting expansions that opened in 2014.
  • Showcasing US space program, the Kennedy Space Center, east of Orlando, has become a historically significant sanctuary of all the cosmic forays that have made Americans proud.
  • Universal studios and its display of world class artistry in movie making has to be seen to be believed. A perfect blend of technology and entertainment is a must see, goes without saying. An added attraction to an already spellbinding setting is the Universal Orlando resort for a-thrill-a minute theme park rides.
  • While Orlando offers great helicopter tours and hot air balloon rides, Richard Petty Driving Experience at Walt Disney world speedway will be a worthwhile exploit for the automobile enthusiast. Car shows and animal shows in downtown area might be a big attraction for some.
  • Art and craft lovers will find Osceola Performing Arts Center a perfect place for live theater performances and art exhibits while Orlando Philharmonic, Dr. Phillips Center For Performing Arts and the Garden Theater will keep their itinerary lively for other engaging programs.
  • Florida’s original theme park, Cypress Gardens, is an ideal spot to watch southern belles and water ski shows. Club it with kayaking at the Wekiwa Springs State Park or the Orlando Science Center for amazing giant screen movies and live shows, the Orlando holiday will invariably become unforgetful.
  • To the delight of big pocket traveler, where Ritz-Carlton Orlando and Waldorf Astoria Orlando offer top notch five star service, Four Seasons Resort Orlando that opened recently has joined the classy group to cater to the elite. Looking for an economical option?, highway 192 and I-Drive are littered with motels and restaurants of any chain that you may think of. Looking for a grub?, Cracker Barrel, Cheesecake Factory, Planet Hollywood, Golden Corral, Hard Rock Cafe, Olive green and Rain Forest Cafe all welcome tourists to satiate a yearning stomach.
  • For compulsive shoppers Mall At The Millenia (MATM), the Prime outlets, Orlando Premium outlets and the Florida mall cater to all, the brand conscious as also the budget customer, but at a destination like Orlando, shopping always takes a back seat. And before you board a flight back home, brace yourself with a souvenir or two from one of the world’s top tourist destinations.
