Walt Disney World, Universal Studios and SeaWorld are just three of the big-hitting names that bring nearly 50 million visitors to the hotels of Orlando every year.
But there’s more to Orlando than Harry Potter and Pirates of the Caribbean. Within easy reach of our Orlando hotels are serious cultural offerings, such as the Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of American Art and Orlando Science Centre. And visitors find Orlando impressively green and pleasant, with a fine collection of lakes, nature reserves and verdant parks and gardens.
While family feasting is a major focus for local restaurants, those looking for a more grown-up experience will find numerous upscale dining choices surrounding their hotel in Orlando. Stylish restaurants can also be found in nearby Winter Park, where visitors exhausted by theme parks will discover a more refined experience.
Orlando’s shopping scene can’t be missed during your stay. You can hit up the area’s large shopping malls, such as the Florida Mall, Mall at Millenia and Belz Festival Bay Mall, or go straight for the deals at the Lake Buena Vista Factory Stores, Orlando Premium Outlets and other outlet stops.
Away from the city and its pleasure parks, the Kennedy Space Centre and Cocoa Beach make for fine day-trip destinations.
