Orlando is best for...
Orlando holidays are great for kids, teenagers and family theme park holidays.
Both the young – and young at heart – can immerse themselves in over a dozen amazing theme parks during their stay at one of our CLC World Orlando resorts. 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 that the average visitor would have to spend a full 67 days in the city to experience all of it!
If shopping is your thing, and you can bear to tear yourself away from Mickey & Co – Orlando is the gateway to retail heaven. During your stay at an Orlando CLC World resort, avid shoppers can head to ‘The Florida Mall’, Orlando’s largest major shopping centre (at 2 million sq ft). There you’ll find Macy’s and Saks Fifth Avenue, as well as more than 260 speciality 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, over the course of your holiday at a CLC World Orlando resort, you’ll have plenty of dining spots to choose from. In fact, you could eat a single meal at a different restaurant, three times a day, for an entire year, and you’d still need to spend over five years to eat at every other restaurant in the city.
Plus, 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 from our CLC World Orlando resorts, you can claim your ideal spot along the three-mile stretch of immaculate white sand at Clearwater Beach. And, you’ll be able to 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 the attractions at Epcot.
