Orlando is a World-Class Tourism Hub

By: Ajeet Khurana

The statement "There is something for everyone" holds true for Florida. Because of its subtropical climate and its exotic tinge of local color, it is an ideal place to spend spring breaks for the youth. There is also something of interest which may appeal to every member of the family. The city of Orlando alone boasts of more theme parks and attractions than can be found anywhere else. If you have fun on your mind, buy a ticket to Orlando.

The best time to visit the city is during the months between November and March. The weather is pleasant at this time and rain is unlikely. Probably the most famous attraction it has to offer is the Walt Disney World Resort. Go to the Walt Disney World Resort if you are keen to relive the memories of childhood all over again.

The resort also has an extensive variety of rides which has enough offerings to excite all age groups, from the quaint revolving teacups specially made for the tykes, to intense inertia rides with speeds surpassing that of gravity. Stay on till it gets dark. That is when Disneyland starts resembling a truly magical place.

Once the sun goes down, the atmosphere here becomes wistful, with characters parading against a backdrop of fantasy landscapes, and fireworks to glitter the sky. A trip to Florida remains incomplete if you do not visit Disneyland.

If sea animals fascinate you, do not forget to plan a visit to Sea World Orlando. If you want to catch a glimpse of movie madness, you can visit Universal Orlando, a sprawling compound which includes Universal Studios, City Walk, and the Islands of Adventure theme parks.

If your kid is a sports fan, he is bound to go all gleeful at the sound of Orlando Magic. The Orlando Magic is one of the happening teams of the NBA, and you can catch season playoffs action at downtown Orlando's Amway Arena. If the gridiron appeals much more to your fancy, then experience arena action as the Orlando Predators of the AFL, and the Jacksonville Jaguars of the NFL brawl it out with other American football teams. Many sports superstars hail from Orlando making the city popular among sports fans.

If you are more of a speed freak, and your idea of a perfect day involves skid marks and the smell of burning rubber, then Daytona Beach is perfect for you. Nothing comes close to sating your need for speed than 400 laps of tire-screeching, engine-squealing action, as NASCAR rallies have been held here since 1947.

Be one among the crowd of nearly eight million tourists in an edge-of-your-seat fusion of sand, surf, man and machine.

Make a trio to the Space Coast part of your travel itinerary. You won't regret it. This 72 mile coast complex from east Orlando to Melbourne accommodates the Kennedy Space Center and the launch pads and rockets of Cape Canaveral, amid the nature preserves, the waterways, and the beautiful beach front.

As far as holidays go, you just can't go wrong with a vacation in Orlando. The mentioned attractions are merely a few of the vast array of productive or leisurely activity which you may experience in the downtown and greater metropolitan areas. As far as the city of Orlando is concerned, vacationers tend to come back for more.
