Millions of visitors head to the Orlando area each year – most go to Walt Disney World®, Universal® and SeaWorld®. Few realize how much more Orlando has to offer.
Orlando has a busy nightlife, an antique district, world class shopping and is rich in culture. The heart of Orlando offers restaurants, night clubs, art galleries, museums and theaters. Nearby Winter Park is known for unique shops and eateries – with Central Park a favorite gathering spot and host to many special events, live concerts and art festivals throughout the year.
Orlando has so many hotels and resorts away from the amusement park areas. The Grand Bohemian Hotel Orlando in downtown and the Bohemian Hotel Celebration are considered boutique hotels featuring art galleries and works of art at every corner. Downtown Winter Park has an enticing mix of luxury high end restaurants and museums.
Orlando offers unforgettable experiences for the adventurers! Golf, kayaking, boating, horse back riding, zip-lining, hang gliding, indoor surfing and skydiving. Black Hammock Adventures lets you dine in the Florida wilderness sitting steps away from an alligator exhibit.
Orlando has some of the world’s best known luxury resorts and spas. Try the Waldorf Astoria Orlando or The Ritz-Carlton Orlando for a luxurious stay and pampering at one of their spas.
There is so much to see beyond the usual attractions that Visit Orlando publishes an Official Visitors Guide each year. This guide is full of information about anything and everything that goes on in the Orlando area and offers a Calendar of Events listing (month by month) for the entire year. It lists pages and pages full of accommodations, attractions, cultural events, sports, dining recommendations and nightlife information. You can also sign up on the Visit Orlando website to receive a free Orlando Magicard which will entitle you to discounts on attractions, resorts, dining and more.
