Orlando Vacation-Why A Family Vacation In Orlando?

By: Jack Krohn

The mention of the name Orlando evokes so many images; Mickey and Minnie, the spectacular theme parks, the scare-you-to-death thrill rides, the natural beauty, the world class accommodations, the great restaurants-on and on it goes. From Orlando Sea World, to Disney World Orlando to Universal Studios Orlando-Orlando has it all!!

Most of all Orlando spells a great fun family vacation that will never be forgotten. Why have family vacations in Orlando? Orlando is the quintessential family vacation spot in the United States and perhaps the entire world with more to keep the entire family going full speed for literally weeks.

Don't let the other 50 plus million visitors from around the world slow you down. Of the top ten amusement parks in the U.S., Orlando only has seven-three got away somehow! Are the amusements parks the reason Orlando is the premier family vacation destination in the country?

There are nearly 120,000 hotel rooms, suites, resorts, vacation homes and other lodging accommodations to take care of the hoards of visitors from around the globe year round. And that number is growing as we speak. Are the world class accommodations the reason Orlando is the premier family vacation destination in the country?

As of this writing there are over 5300 Orlando restaurants with the number growing by the minute. The words "theme restaurant" must have been coined for Orlando. If there is a world class theme restaurant anywhere in the country it probably is in Orlando.

Please note that theme restaurants are famous for their atmosphere and the experience of putting you in another time and place for a few hours NOT necessarily for their culinary excellence. The two concepts are almost always mutually exclusive. Are the world class culinary and themed restaurants the reason why Orlando is the premier family vacation destination in the country?

Or the world class shopping-is that the reason it is so popular. Can you imagine having 50 million visitor a year, the retail shops to support that traffic?

No it is not any one of these things by itself-it is the whole package! The 90 plus theme parks and other attractions, the world class accommodations, the fabulous themed restaurants, great shopping, toss in some great weather, mix with 50 million of your closest friends and you have a recipe for a fun family vacation beyond compare-ORLANDO!
