Orlando Holidays Overview


Orlando, the theme park capital of the world, has a lot more to offer than its out of the world theme parks. Yes, the theme parks are a major draw for the city. But there are a host of other sights and attractions such as a hot air balloon ride, indoor skydiving, exotic beaches, secluded coves, parasailing, etc. Whether one prefers super luxury resorts or simply wishes to save their hard earned money by choosing budget hotels, finding something just right shouldn’t be all that difficult since there are more than 400 hotels and resorts to choose from.

Orlando might seem to be extremely plastic in the first glance due to the presence of countless theme parks, man-made wonders and an extremely cosmopolitan culture. Most people might also believe that any journey to the city only revolves around theme parks like Walt Disney World and Universal Studios. However, in the course of the past decade, Orlando has managed to rise above its stereotype view and has grown into a major travel destination (minus its theme parks) of its own. The city might be landlocked, but it still features countless lakes and is also located at a distance of 60 minutes from the exotic beaches of the Atlantic. The community in Orlando is a lot closer to what the USA is projected to look like in the year 2020. There is a substantial Hispanic and African – American population and Brits and Canadians are also present in large numbers.

The reason why Orlando has remained so popular since ages is that it hasn’t forgotten that its visitors mainly come to have fun, whether fun is spending days at a theme park, sunbathing in a secluded cove, enjoying a thrilling roller coaster ride or spending time with one’s family in beautiful beaches and perfectly manicured gardens.

Orlando is also famous for having a dazzling nightlife, a bevy of restaurants and countless bars that offer tourists with contrasting experiences and options to choose from. The International Drive is one area that is known to offer the true Orlando experience to visitors. It is home to the best hotels and nightclubs of the city and also features countless shopping malls and designer boutiques.

Today it is just one of four Disney parks that cover more than 28,000 acres of Orange and Osceola counties in central Florida, with accompanying resorts, shopping complexes, hotels and waterparks. Apart from the Magic Kingdom, Walt Disney World Orlando now includes Epcot, a futuristic showcase of the world's different cultures and traditions; MGM Studios, a working animation and television studio; and Animal Kingdom, where a huge variety of animals are kept in themed surroundings along with a cast of Disney characters.

What is it? Spread out between the Disney parks at Lake Buena Vista and the downtown Orlando area is the renowned Sea World attraction, which has been making a major splash in central Florida for more than a quarter of a century. The park, owned and operated by Annheuser-Busch, is designed to give an interactive look at the sea and all its facets, featuring themed animal habitats from tidal pools to iceberg lakes. In addition visitors can hug a dolphin or kiss a killer whale, and watch the famous aquatic Sea World stars go through their paces in various shows. The park also features fun rides like the very popular water roller coaster thrill ride called Journey to Atlantis. Neighbouring Discovery Cove (part of the Sea World group) offers visitors a chance to swim with dolphins, view wildlife, sunbathe on gorgeous beaches and snorkel amongst the coral.

3. Universal Studios

www.universalorlando.com
What is it? Experienced theme parkers recommend that it takes at least two days to fully appreciate all the delights on offer at the Universal Orlando entertainment complex, which includes two theme parks: the Islands of Adventure and Universal Studios. The movie-themed park with its thrilling, innovative fun-rides, production studios and film sets also has three superb luxury on-site hotels so spending a night is a good idea. At Universal Studios visitors are invited to go behind the scenes and become involved in the movie action, while Islands of Adventure offers thrilling rides, shows and attractions from five different islands.
