Orlando

Fifty-two million tourists each year can’t be wrong. Orlando, Florida, is a city built to impress and entice, with more major attractions per square metre than any other US city. This visually striking metropolis loves to show off and play host, boasting the second-largest number of hotel rooms in the country. But if that sounds a little congested, you’ll also be surprised to learn that Orlando has more than 100 natural lakes and a wide variety of sweeping golf courses, reflecting the foresight of its town planners to marry urban density with natural beauty. Widely referred to as America’s family-fun capital, Orlando is home to all the big daddy’s of theme park amusement, including Walt Disney World Resort, SeaWorld, Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park and Universal Studios Orlando. Jam-packed with thrill rides and features, Orlando is a perfect diversion in a longer US itinerary, or as a holiday destination in its own right. But the appeal of Orlando runs far deeper than its tourist facade. Vibrant Hispanic, Afro-Caribbean and Vietnamese communities add fascinating cultural dimensions to this treasured tropical American city.
