Fresh citrus and lovely weather may have been Orlando’s first way of tempting tourists to visit, but today it is fun – namely family fun. From the area’s iconic theme parks to resorts that cater to families of all ages, Orlando just can’t be outdone when it comes to keeping families happy. Outside of the theme parks there is much to see, experience, and do, as well. For outdoor enthusiasts, there are beautiful gardens, exceptional golf courses, airboat rides through swamp eco-systems, and many lakes for fishing and boating. Cultural enthusiasts can enjoy fine arts and history museums, live theatre, and musical concerts. And if that isn’t enough, take part in go-karting, hot-air ballooning, the circus, a chocolate factory tour, zip-lining, or a dinner show. In Orlando, the options and fun are endless.

World-famous theme parks are the main reason nearly 60 million people from all over the world come to Orlando, but there is much more to see and do – from sports and entertainment, gardens and museums, and the Kennedy Space Center, just 45 minutes away.
