Orlando is one of the top tourist destinations in Florida, and even the United States as a whole. The reason behind this is simple - with so many fantastic attractions to visit, there's no question as to whether or not you'll stay entertained while on holiday.
From theme parks based on the world of your favourite Disney characters to the enigmatic and incredible Universal Studios, Orlando has you covered when it comes to theme parks. With other attractions such as SeaWorld, which combines education with good, clean fun, it's not hard to see why so many families choose Orlando as the holiday destination of their dreams.
Even if you're not too keen on spending your day seeking thrills on exciting rides and attractions, Orlando still has plenty to offer, such as incredible days at the beach where sunshine presides - this is Florida, after all. Or perhaps you'd like to do some shopping while on your trip? Once again, Orlando has this in droves, as well as a plethora of spas and health clubs for those pamper days, restaurants of all kinds serving the most delectable foods, and bars and nightclubs for enjoying a drink with friends and dancing the night away.
However, if you're heading to Orlando with kids, the chances are you'll be most interested in checking out Walt Disney World Resort - the most impressive Disney park of all, where an incredible seven different parks suffuse into a massive whole - and Universal Studios, a theme park bringing all of your favourite blockbuster movies to life. Don't miss SeaWorld either, where you can experience the ocean in a whole new light, and take in a few shows with stunning displays of aquatic animal prowess.
There's so much to see and do in Orlando that it may end up being hard to squeeze it all in, but if you're serious about fun then you'll definitely love visiting all or any of these theme parks. You can even plan your trip for a certain time of year - such as around winter - when these parks will be less busy, allowing you to see and do more without getting held back by queues and crowds.
After a few days of theme park hopping, there's no doubt you'll be exhausted when you return to your Orlando hotels - though the kids may not be, which means it's important to always get a great night's sleep so you'll have just as much energy the next day for the next theme park you'll be heading to.
