Orlando is known as the “The Theme Park Capital of the World” and in 2014 its tourist attractions and events drew in more than 62 million visitors. Orlando is a destination where children and grownups can enjoy once-in-a-lifetime experiences exploring legendary theme parks, aquatic attractions and luxurious escapes.
One of the world’s premier tourist destinations, Orlando’s famous attractions form the backbone of its tourism industry: Walt Disney World Resort®, Universal Orlando Resort® and Universal Studios Florida®.
Orlando is so much more than a tourist attraction, just 20 minutes from the parks you’ll find downtown Orlando. A small but vibrant and lively city busy with people and whether you are here for work during the day or on the town with your family at night, there are well known art galleries, great restaurants and a fun nightclub scene.
Orlando ranks as the fourth most popular American city based off where people want to live, with two seasons year round. One is hot and rainy, lasting from May until late September and the other is the dry, relatively cool season, lasting from October through April. Overall, the weather is a humid subtropical climate with the majority of the rain falling from June to September.
