There’s a reason Orlando is known as ‘The City Beautiful’, with its various picturesque lakes and gardens, outdoor attractions and of course its grand theme parks.

The latter is what Orlando is best known for – you won’t want to visit without getting lost in the magic of Disney World, Universal’s Islands of Adventure and SeaWorld.

Don’t spend all your time in the theme parks though, because Orlando has plenty more entertainment on offer. Take to the outdoors on an eco-safari or airboat ride through the local swamps, where alligators and other unique animals roam wild.

The morning can always wait, with so many different night activities like the pulsating Universal CityWalk and downtown bars and theatres.
