Mini Travel Guide to Orlando
While many visitors travel to Orlando for the nearby theme parks, the city also has plenty to offer. Downtown Orlando's real draw is perhaps its authenticity - it's Orlando's central business district and is home to retail areas, art galleries, theatres and parklands.
However, if you are in Orlando for the theme parks, the choice is staggering. For many visitors, Walt Disney World, outside of Orlando itself, is the primary draw. It is a resort on an unimaginable scale containing four separate parks: The Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney's Hollywood Studios, and Disney's Animal Kingdom. There are also two water parks and an entertainment district known as ‘Downtown Disney’. This district is home to nightclubs, shops and restaurants.
Universal Orlando is another vast resort. It has two theme parks (Universal Studios Florida and Universal's Islands of Adventure). The latter features The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. There are also three onsite themed hotels and more than 50 restaurants.
Other major attractions in the Orlando area include SeaWorld, Busch Gardens and the Kennedy Space Center.
