Entertainment & Leisure in Orlando
Tear yourself away from Mickey & Co, and if shopping is your thing, Orlando is the gateway to retail heaven. At ‘The Florida Mall’, Orlando’s largest major shopping centre (at 2 million sq ft); you’ll find Macy’s and Saks Fifth Avenue, as well as more than 260 specialty stores. And, if you can’t resist a bargain, numerous Outlets and Factory Stores are all must-shop destinations to scoop up premium and designer items at reduced prices.
Orlando is hungry work. Thankfully, you can eat a single meal at a different restaurant, three times a day, for an entire year, and you’ll still need to spend over five years to eat at every other restaurant in the city.
Yet if you’re looking to escape the hullabaloo of Orlando, there are many fantastic places to visit in the wider-Florida area. Only a short drive away, you can find your spot along the three-mile stretch of immaculate white sand at Clearwater Beach, and discover Tampa Bay – widely-regarded as the hip, urban heart of Florida’s gulf coast. Whereas no trip to Florida is complete without checking out the tropical wetlands of the Everglades and Epcot.
