Mickey or Spiderman? If you love theme parks, then you'll love Orlando with numerous attractions to choose from. While Orlando is landlocked, the Atlantic is only about an hour away so if you yearn for the beach it's easy enough to get to. Beyond the theme parks which attract millions of people each year, Orlando has a lot of other things going for it's residents. Everything is year around.. Many lakes in the orlando area, so boating, wakingboarding, or tubing will keep you busy if you like water sports.If you like your teams, Orlando Magic games are fun and UCF has a football team so start the tailgating early. Downtown Orlando has pretty good nightlife and attracts some great live music. Shopping is amazing too. Everything from outlet malls to designer malls.
