Things to do in Orlando
Things to do in Orlando
Orlando’s main attractions are undoubtedly its theme parks, which attract a whopping 60 million visitors annually. Walt Disney World, which opened in 1971, remains the most popular of the theme parks, closely followed by Universal Studios Orlando Resort. Then there is the amazing Kennedy Space Center, which brings space travel to life, and all the colour and fun of Legoland. As well as the theme parks, you can also experience the wonders of the swampy Everglades – perhaps canoeing or even taking an airboat along the waterways – or head to the coast, and the fabulous Florida beaches (about 1 to 2 hours away by car). There are facilities for every kind of sport and outdoor activity – golf, tennis, hiking, biking and much more – and Orlando is also a shopping mecca, with scores of malls and designer outlets to choose from. Plus, culture vultures will enjoy the city’s fine array of art museums and galleries, which include the Orlando Museum of Art and the Mennello Museum of American Art.
Land-locked Orlando has plenty of lakes where you can cool off, but you’ll need to drive an hour or two to hit one of Florida’s mythical beaches. The most accessible is Cocoa Beach, about an hour away by car, which is a lovely swathe of white sand with plenty of facilities. Daytona Beach, just over an hour’s drive away, makes for a great day trip, with theme parks, race tracks, lighthouses and plenty more to keep kids of all ages and interests amused. New Smyrna Beach (70 minutes in the car) is a surfer’s paradise, while charming Flagler Beach (also a 70-minute drive) has beachfront wineries, a century-old pier, and lots of great restaurants and bars.
