ORLANDO

ORLANDO

Not just the Theme Park Capital of the World

For decades, Orlando has been known as a playground for children and adults alike. There’s no denying that the theme parks here are absolutely part of our identify, but within the last decade or so, the playground has been given an extreme make-over is home to several luxury properties, unique outdoor activities, and a diverse dynamic food scene

Where else can you explore the Everglades by airboat one day and indulge in a mug of butter beer in front of Hogwarts the next?  Oh, that was a rhetorical question – the answer is nowhere else!

Destination Highlights

THEME PARKS

There are a total of 32 different theme parks (and growing), with Walt Disney World and Universal Orlando being the most well-known. Other hot spots include Sea World, Busch Gardens and Legoland, while new and exciting attractions debut almost every year.

ARTS + CULTURE

Whether you’re interested in performing arts, museums, galleries or any combination thereof, prepare to be amazed by acclaimed cultural offerings that are uniquely Orlando.

OUTDOOR ADVENTURES

Orlando is the perfect destination for anyone looking to try a new watersport, tour the Florida Everglades or partake in exciting animal encounters.

HIDDEN HIPSTER DISTRICTS

In the shadow of the theme parks you'll find some relatively undiscovered sections of Orlando, with a bit more diversity, funkiness, and charm. Thornton Park, Audobon Park, and the Milk District are some of our favorites (ask Jimmy Fallon about Beefy King!).
