The City

For many, Orlando experiences begin with legendary theme parks, where there are endless opportunities for unforgettable moments. Like seeing the joy in a toddler’s face when she’s running to greet a favorite character. Or feeling the anticipation that builds as you strap into a new pulse-pounding thrill ride.

When it comes to aquatic adventures, Orlando offers dozens of attractions that could fill countless volumes with tales of friendly sea creatures. For those times when you are in search of a peaceful escape, you can find luxurious spas and idyllic pools where majestic palms and gentle breezes create an oasis of calm. Of course, there are still many more chapters to explore: championship golf courses, world-class shopping, a vibrant dining scene featuring the latest from celebrity chefs and rising culinary stars, and even serene eco-adventures.

Do & See

Orlando has lots to offer outside the theme parks, whether you're a fan of more affordable attractions or a more relaxed pace. The Coca-Cola Orlando Eye towers above the entire I-Drive 360 complex, while Boggy Creek Airboat Rides offers a glimpse into the unaltered Central Florida wilderness. Little ones can find hours of fun at Crayola Experience, but grownups can get just as creative ordering cocktail at speak-easy styled bar, Herman's Loan Office.
