Explore Orlando.

Whether you’re visiting Orlando for business, pleasure, or a mix of both, Orlando offers a unique experience for every traveler. Located in Central Florida, expect a welcome as warm as the weather when you meet the locals. But friendly Floridians aren’t the city’s only inhabitants. A robust range of wildlife thrives in the area’s humid subtropical climate, including alligators, snakes, and armadillos. Orlando’s other claim to fame: theme parks. With more than a dozen parks to choose from, Orlando is a hot spot for ride and game lovers across the world. And if you’re looking for a bite to eat, Orlando won’t disappoint. The city’s booming restaurant scene offers delicious cuisine and dining options that range from formal to casual.

Take a trip to see Orlando’s top sites. As far as attractions go, start by visiting the Kennedy Space Center. Just a hop, skip, and jump from Orlando, Florida’s space getaway is a stop worth making. Even if you don’t catch a rocket launch that day, learning about NASA’s revolutionary journey in space exploration is enough to take you to the stars. And once you’ve worked the left side of your brain, work the right side. The Orlando Museum of Art features several exceptional collections that will arrest your attention from the moment you walk in until the moment you leave.

Traveling is an excellent time to step outside of your comfort zone and embark on new adventures. At several locations around the city you can experience waterskiing, wakeboarding, wakeskating, and other watersports that never fail to deliver an adrenaline rush. If you would like to get in touch with nature, twist your way through mangrove tunnels on an Everglades airboat tour. The Everglades National Park is a one-of-a-kind experience that every person can enjoy, no matter what their age.
