THE THEME PARK CAPITAL OF THE WORLD

Both the young – and young at heart – can immerse themselves in over a dozen amazing theme parks. Constantly introducing new attractions (Star Wars Land and The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™ to name but two), the big players, such as Walt Disney World®, Universal Studios®, SeaWorld® and Legoland® are all vying to be the star attraction and grab a bigger piece of this American pie, which saw 59 million visitors descend on Orlando in 2015 (source: Orlando Tourism Bureau).

It is said, there’s so much to do in Orlando the average visitor would have to spend a full 67 days in the city to experience all of it!

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.
