Orlando

4.3

Theme Park Capital of the World

For most people, any mention of Orlando immediately conjures up images of sprawling theme parks filled with characters plucked right out of popular animated movies. Despite its reputation as the amusement park capital of the world, Orlando and its surroundings offer a lot more things to do than just enjoying a collection of thrilling rides geared at families with children. The city proper contains none of the major theme parks, instead housing world-class museums, galleries, gardens, and tree-lined neighborhoods with a strong sense of community. You can easily get caught up in the lavish world of the theme parks, but for a more peaceful vacation consider exploring the quieter areas away from the tourist-packed entertainment complexes. Orlando is in Central Florida. Plan your trip to Orlando and other United States destinations using our handy United States trip planner .

Where to stay in Orlando

Orlando is famous for its high concentration of budget, mid-range, and luxury hotels. The city caters to every tourist's needs, with accommodations ranging from inexpensive hostels and motels to five-star resorts and lavish private villas. Orlando is a busy city all year long, so plan ahead and book your stay well in advance. To avoid the crowds of the big theme parks, consider renting a vacation house or condo just outside the city, or explore one of the area's campgrounds or RV resorts.
