Aside from the “House of Mouse” and other theme parks, with well over 200 sunny days per year and a plethora of great sights, Orlando, Florida is definitely a place you should visit. Whether you’re looking for a getaway for two or the entire family, we’ve put together the top 6 reasons why you should visit Orlando.
Food for Every Palette
In October of last year, WalletHub ranked Orlando, Florida as one of the top 15 Best Foodie Cities in America and there’s several reasons why. Not only can you test out culinary delights from around the world at Disney’s Epcot, International Drive is just around the corner and you can visit fan-favorites such as: Taverna Opa, Pão Gostoso Bakery, the Nile Ethiopian Restaurant, and much more.
For Sports Fans
Orlando Florida also offers something for virtually every sports fan out there. Catch major league soccer at Orlando City Soccer Stadium, visit the 100-court, 65-acre, tennis complex near Lake Nona, and golf until your heart’s content at one of over 170 courses. For the more adventurous, head over to the Daytona International Speedway and climb behind the wheel of a NASCAR race car at the Richard Petty Driving Experience.
There’s simply no denying it, Orlando has an abundance of natural beauty that millions have fallen in love with. Go swimming in the crystal clear waters of Wekiwa Springs State Park, where the spring keeps it a cool 72°F all year long. At Wekiva Island you can kayak, rent a cabana, and relax to live music at Tooting Otter’s indoor/outdoor bar.
Museums & Culture
Orlando, Florida has several great museums such as the Museum of Osteology and the Orlando Museum of Art that you’re sure to enjoy. However, if museums aren’t your idea of fun, head over to Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts to catch a Broadway show, ballet, orchestra, and dance performances, as well as live music performers.
Every couple needs some quality time alone and Orlando can help you crank up the romance and make memories that will last. Orlando is a popular wedding destination for a reason and with Ivanhoe Village, one of the most romantic main streets in the country, you and your special someone will keep the sparks flying. Start off with a cozy dinner, relax watching the sunset, and wrap up the evening at Better Than Sex, an adult cafe that is perfect for couples.
Fun for the Family
We’d be remiss if we made a top list for visiting Orlando, Florida and didn’t mention the fantastic theme parks. Of course there’s the ever-popular SeaWorld Orlando, Walt Disney World, and Universal Studios, but there are also fantastic water parks and with new rides and attractions being added all the time to all of the above, every trip is a new experience.
When it comes to a great place to visit alone, with that special someone, or the entire family, you simply cannot go wrong with Orlando, Florida.
