The Hottest Spot
There is no vacation hot spot equal to Orlando Florida. Orlando has everything every tourist could ever want, or need. Orlando features top tourist attractions, hundreds of cultural activities, shopping, fine dining and the wild nightlife.
Orlando is home to the one and only, Walt Disney World. The Walt Disney World Resort is a great place to visit not just for the kids but for the adults too! As the kids are able to meet their favorite celebrities such as Mickey Mouse and Cinderella, the adults can rekindle the romance in the Magic Kingdom. Other great Orlando attractions include the Sea World Orlando - a large adventure park that features many zoological displays, and lots of marine animals and shows, and for the adventurous, Universal Orlando Resort for a wild rollercoaster ride.
Orlando has a very unique culture and therefore has many spectacular cultural activities. These activities include: The Orange County Regional History Center, the Sharp Aquos Theatre, and Cirque du Soleil: La Nouba. Even the NBA Basketball team, the Orlando Magic, have a Latino night dedicated to the Latin population. You can also visit “Little Vietnam” which is a Vietnamese neighborhood that offers great food and shopping, with many Asian imports. The heart of the area is the Colonialtown district of Orlando - the intersection of East Colonial Drive/HWY 50 and Mills Ave, also known as the "Vi-Mi" or the "Little Saigon" district. The Orlando Vietnamese community has its roots in war refugees seeking a new life in America after the fall of Saigon.
The Greatest Shopping
We cannot talk about shopping in Orlando without mentioning the Florida Mall which just happens to be the largest mall in Central Florida. It includes over 250 stores which include such favorites as the Gap, Coach, Sephora, Tommy Hilfiger and BCBG. Other fantastic malls in this Orlando shopping fantasy city are The Mall at Millenia, Orlando Fashion Square Mall, Pointe Orlando and the Prime Outlet Malls.
The Finest Food
After a fun filled day of touring museums, visiting theme parks and shopping, you are bound to need something to eat. Orlando offers a wide range of dining choices, from Arabian to Ukrainian, from hectic to eclectic, and from five dollar to five star restaurants. The first restaurant many visitors want to dine at is the Hard Rock Café Orlando. Here you will find traditional American food with great music and a relaxed atmosphere. If you are looking for a great Italian pizza, come to Brick & Fire Pizza & Wine Co. which serves first class pizzas fit for any pizza aficionado. If you are craving Fish and Chips try the Harp & Celt Restaurant which offers great dishes from the United Kingdom. There is even the perfect restaurant for sports fans: Dan Marino’s Tavern on the Lake.
The Hippest Nightlife
Orlando is certainly a fun city to be in. Whether you like to dance the night away or just want a quiet evening out, Orlando has something for everyone. A great place to catch a bite and that converts into a club is the Taverna Opa. This hot spot plays a variety of music, especially techno, with belly dancers adorning the club. If you are looking for something a little more low key, check out Lava Lounge and Café.
This is just a sample of what Orlando can offer its visitor. Orlando is a great place to visit because it's a family friendly city, and is fun for everyone no matter how old the visitor is. It is also a great city for family bonding.
