Shopping-----Discover what some know already- that Orlando is secretly a shopper's paradise. From some of the top department stores including Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue and Bloomingdales to one of the largest outlet locations in the Southeast, Orlando shopping has something for wallets of every size. Visitors looking for unique boutiques can stroll and shop downtown Orlando and Winter Park for hard-to-find clothing labels, home décor and antiques.
When it comes to filling up your vacation itinerary, Orlando offers no shortage of things to do. Take advantage of experiences that are uniquely Orlando, like flying through a swamp on an airboat or getting up close with wildlife at Gatorland or SeaWorld's Discovery Cove. Sports lovers can cheer on the Magic NBA basketball team at the new Amway Center or take a ride on one of multiple zip-lines in the area. And the fun doesn't stop when the sun goes down: check out a show at Cirque de Soleil, Blue Man Group or one of Orlando's many dinner theaters for an entertaining nightcap.
Recreation & Outdoors While Orlando may be best known for its world-class theme parks, the city is chock full of unique outdoor and sporting activities for adventure seekers. Where else can visitors fly in an open-cockpit 1930s' biplane or ride an airboat through a swampy wilderness? Those seeking a more laid-back experience can opt for a stroll through one of many gardens and parks or an early morning hot air balloon ride over the Central Florida treetops. Throw in more than 150 golf courses, numerous tennis facilities and hundreds of lakes for fishing and boating, and Orlando is a sportsman's paradise.
Orlando Florida is famous for being the Theme Park Capital of America, a title that is well-deserved. Orlando and the surrounding areas have major international parks, smaller attractions, and an incredible family-entertainment orientation. Orlando is the place every "kid" dreams of visiting, and it has something for everyone in the family to enjoy.
