Orlando

It's hard to believe that as recently as the 1940s one of the most significant things about Orlando was its importance as a centre for growing oranges. The opening of Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom® in 1971 changed that for ever. Today Orlando justifiably wears the crown of Theme Park Capital of the World, and, with over 60 million visitors annually, it also holds the accolade of being the USA's most visited tourist destination. Theme park development continued apace following the opening of Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom® with Disney's Hollywood Studios, SeaWorld® Orlando, including Aquatica Orlando, Walt Disney's Discovery Island (now part of Walt Disney's Animal Kingdom®), Wet 'n Wild (later closed and replaced by Universal's Volcano Bay® - Water Theme Park) and Disney's Epcot® all arriving during the ensuing decade. Other popular attractions including Universal Orlando Resort™, Universal's Island of Adventure and Universal Studios Florida, Disney's Animal Kingdom® and LEGOLAND® Florida Resort all followed later. Orlando's theme parks are all located within easy reach of one another with LEGOLAND® being the furthest afield at 47 miles from Orlando. Fun-filled magic, mind-boggling illusion and pure escapism dominate the proceedings, with a myriad of thrill rides, cleverly choreographed shows and endless entertainment on offer for adults and children of all ages. All conveniently served up for unparalleled and uninhibited enjoyment, set within a series of purpose built, state-of-the-art complexes. Each affords the most innovative and creative attention to detail, bestowing reality and credence on and to the many fairy tales, super heroes, vagabonds, princesses and technicolour fantasies that the endless stream of visitors enjoy in their thousands. Aside from the attractions on show Orlando has other sides to it and the nerve centre is International Drive, or I-Drive for short, which stretches for 17 miles from north to south. At its core lies a procession of hotels and resorts, bars, restaurants, shopping malls, outlet stores and boutiques along with numerous activities and top line attractions. Entertainment, dining, art and culture also lie at the heart of Downtown Orlando district, positioned just to the northeast of where most of the main areas of theme park interest are located. Local attractions here include Lake Eola Park and walkway and the Orange County Regional History Centre which provides a taste of Orlando as it used to be, way back before the advent of Disney. Church Street Station, built in 1889, is the focal point for numerous downtown restaurant and tapas bars whilst the nearby Amway Center regularly hosts a range of musical and NCAA basketball events.
