With over 300,000 residents, Orlando is one of Florida’s largest cities and has become a massive melting pot of cultures, style, food and music. Located in the most central part of Florida, you have access to some of the best beaches both of our coasts have to offer as well as quick access to some of our other major cities like Miami, Tampa and Jacksonville.
Nicknamed the “city beautiful”, Orlando hosts one of the top tourist attractions in our Country (you guessed it, Disney World). And yes, we all know Disney is technically in Bay Lake, but nobody actually calls it that. You can also enjoy visiting the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios, ride on one of the largest ferris wheels in the U.S. or figure out why we have an upside down house at WonderWorks. There’s so much to do in this city and although it does bring in a great deal of tourists near the theme parks and major shopping malls, locals know the real Orlando is just as full of wonder and excitement.
If you’ve lived here long enough or grew up in Orlando, you begin to explore what Orlando has to offer outside of the major tourist attractions. You’ll quickly walk through the beautiful Leu Gardens and learn about our early history, attend a theater production at our exquisite Dr. Phillips Center for Performing Arts, stroll through the farmer’s market right in the heart of downtown or check out one of the many festivals we host celebrating our different cultures. If you’re a sports fan, you’ll love seeing some games at the AMway Center & Camping World Stadium hosting local basketball, soccer, hockey teams and more.
The variety of restaurants and types of food here is countless. From grabbing a quick bite at a locally owned food truck to eating at one of our finer restaurants in either Winter Park or Dr. Philips, there’s something for everyone to enjoy on different occasions. Come find out what the real Orlando is all about!
