Orlando is one of the world’s most visited family destinations, and while its illustrious themed attractions may steal the limelight, with a vibrant and well-kept city centre and a climate that averages around 75° Fahrenheit (25° Celsius), there is a surprising amount of things to experience here.
Welcoming tens-of-millions of visitors per year, both Disney World and Universal Orlando pack in an entire trip’s worth of fun on their own. But it would be a mistake to overlook Orlando’s other activities because the rest of ‘The City Beautiful’ is full of similar family-friendly attractions like waterparks, giant aquariums and zoos, exciting shows, airboat tours around the swamps and plenty of golfing opportunities. Discover all of this, and much more in our guide to Orlando!
