Orlando is the entertaiment city of Florida since it is home of several theme parks like Universal Orlando Resort, SeaWorld Orlando, Gatorland and Walt Disney World Resort (this last is located at Lake Buena Vista). However, downtown it is not a very touristic place but it is reccomended to visit it.
Orlando is also home to the University of Central Florida, the largest university campus by student enrollment in the state of Florida and the 2nd largest in the United States.
Most tourists visit Orlando between June and August, while another peak time for tourism is March and April. Ironically, the less busy times for tourism correspond to the best weather in the Orlando area; the summer months can be exceptionally busy with families who are making a trip while kids are on summer vacation. Visiting when the weather isn't so hot means less people in the area and that provides some advantages, but you will be able to enjoy cooler weather.
Awesome!!!! One Of the most beautiful and fun places i ever been!!! Love it <3
The attractions will have you busy for days, no way you can experience this tourist city on one trip!!!
I love it here. Just outside the city it is extremely green. It is also really hot all the time and extremely humid.
Home of my most fav mouse ever!!! I love and cherish my many Disney memories!
Really nice place, always warm and totaly different from the usual. Many attractions and things to do.
I lived here for a year and I really like it in the winter. There's so much to do beyond Disney and Universal and it's very family friendly. Lots of beautiful city parks, great old historic neighborhoods, and a very diverse population which means a great variety of diverse restaurants. If you haven't been, go, but watch out for the humidity in the Summer and don't forget your poncho!
