Orlando Guide

United States of America > Orlando

Once known as the 'city built on the peel of an orange,' Orlando has become a tourist mecca and high tech center. Orlando used to be just another quiet Florida town where gator wrestling was the unofficial pastime. Until when Walt Disney opened up shop and transformed the area into the world's most popular tourist destination.

Don't miss a chance for a visit here, although many people believe Walt Disney World is just the Magic Kingdom for children, it's much, much more for everybody. It's the world's largest amusement park and a vast blending of technology, entertainment, health spas, and many more unexpected facilities that are ready for you.

Roller-coaster lovers won't want to miss this, Thunder Mountain Railroad, and Splash Mountain is another must-do if you can stomach the final hill, fully viewable from the outside.

A spectacular Orlando Science Center, which has a gator hole and the physics-phriendly Tunnel of Discovery; and the Orlando Museum of Art, which showcases Mayan archeological finds. These heart-pounding highlights, have attracted many visitors coming to Orlando.

Orlando International Airport, in the far southeastern corner of the city, is the largest in central Florida. It's served by almost all major airlines in domestic and international flights.
