Orlando, a city famous all over the world for the great theme parks, is surprisingly only the sixth-largest holidays in Florida.
The weather is always great in Orlando
which coupled with a multitude of attractions makes it a perfect place for family holidays in Florida.
Needless to say, there are lots of fun things to do in Orlando.
While the majority of Orlando’s income is from its booming tourism industry, it
would be unfair just to label it a theme park city especially when it has other profitable industries that compete with tourism
There are around 52 million tourists visiting coming to the region each year and hence,
it is obvious that to accommodate that many visitors there has to be a large number of attractions.
When thinking of Orlando, there’s one place that immediately comes to mind.
Walt Disney World is one of the main reasons for the city’s popularity.
Apart from its world-famous theme parks, Disney World now offers a lot more lodging possibilities than it used to not so long ago.
Sea World is another very popular theme park and although there are only a couple of rides there,
it really doesn’t matter as a family will find plenty of entertainment from all the sea creatures there including shows from dolphins and killer whales which should not be missed.
However, many other shows are constantly going on where it is possible to get really close to sea creatures and you might find it hard to fit all the shows in with just one visit.
There are many more tourist attractions in Orlando, with Universal Studios and Universal Islands of Adventure being the most popular.
Be sure to give them a try, as they offer a huge number of coasters and rides.
However, if you are not a big theme park fan, the Arabian Nights show might be the thing for you.
It features sixty trained horses and provides great entertainment for the entire family.
When you plan a trip to Orlando it is important to have some idea in advance of where you are going to stay, eat, and what attractions you intend to visit as it is very easy to get sidetracked as there is so much to see and do.
There is an abundance of places to stay at all budget levels, including many luxury hotels with great sports facilities.
As you can clearly see, Orlando does have a lot to offer for everyone. The Disney World, while amazing, is definitely not the only attraction of this great city. If you decide to spend your family vacation in Orlando, you are guaranteed to have an unforgettable time.
