Orlando is certainly well known and would not be the city it is without its world class theme parks and hotels. But whether you are just visiting once or several times you owe it to yourself to see the rest of the city. It is in fact very well organized, livable and enjoyable. So many people work in the parks, in accompanying businesses or just in the day to day life here that there is a very good infrastructure to enjoy.
The downtown of Orlando is a conglomerate of beautiful high rise buildings, paved walkways, manicured gardens and modern looking buildings. There are plenty of lakes and parks interspersed among all this too. There are excellent hotels where you can escape the whole inclusive resort theme if you want to. Beautiful churches, performing arts centers, pubs, restaurants and coffee shops make up a high end and organized city you won’t soon forget.
This suburban district is home to amazing golf courses, affluent neighborhoods, well kept shopping centers and places for leisure too. Explore some of the more luxurious offerings like day spas and wine cellars. Gift shops, water sports and even a few museums can peak your interest beyond the long lines to be found elsewhere in town.
