Orlando, Florida has long been seen as the number one travel destination for vacations planned around theme parks. While Orlando does house some of the best theme parks in the world, there are many other reasons you might want to travel to this world-famous city.
If you are considering one or more of Orlando’s famous theme parks; research several and choose the best one. Each park alone is large enough to warrant a single vacation, so time management is a must on this type of vacation. Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Disney’s Blizzard Beach, Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon, and various other locations are all situated in and around Orlando. Regardless of the park you’re visiting, you will find hotel accommodations to suit all tastes and needs, restaurants of nearly any cuisine nearby, and activities to pack your itinerary as full as it can be.
If you’re traveling to experience the arts or culture and history of Orlando there is a string of theatres and museums to visit. There is the Orlando Shakespeare Theatre, The Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of American Art, Orlando Museum of Art, CityArts Factory, and many other galleries and museums nearby.
However, if shopping is more your style there is no shortage of malls and shops to check out. The Florida Mall is located in Orlando and often draws people from all over the country. There are also various Premium Outlets and flagship stores that carry merchandise franchise locations do not. The Mall at Millennia is also a large shopping attraction you wouldn’t want to miss out on. Maybe you could get the kids off to a theme park with their father, and spend the day in an air conditioned mall instead.
If you’re lucky enough to get even more time to yourself, there are a number of top-rated salons and spas in Orlando that will leave you feeling very relaxed. Blue Harmony, Waldorf Astoria Spa, The Salon at Bay Hill, and Poseidon Spa all offer an incredibly luxurious visit. For something a little different, Shala Salon Spa and Turkish Bath is a must-see.
