Downtown Orlando

Get the Most out of Orlando

The City Beautiful, Orlando draws people from all over the world to central Florida with its legendary theme parks – but the magic doesn't stop there. Here are a few of our favorite things to see and do in O-Town.

Get to the parks.

Of course, no visit to central Florida is complete without an experience of one – or all – of the area's world-famous theme parks.

The greater Orlando area features the famed Walt Disney World in nearby Lake Buena Vista, as well as SeaWorld Orlando, Universal Orlando and Legoland in close-by Winter Haven.

Catch a game.

The Orlando Magic bring all the high-flying excitement of the NBA to the Amway Center in Orlando. Check the schedule during your visit to see the world's biggest basketball stars in action – the NBA season goes from early fall through the end of spring.

Appreciate the arts.

View extensive collections of African and American art with a visit to the Orlando Museum of Art, the Orlando area's premiere fine art destination.

There is also a variety of ceramic, jade, stone, and more in the Art of the Ancient Americas collection, along with classic paintings of American people and landscapes. The museum's hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesday through Friday, and 12 p.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday and Sunday.

Discover the dolphins.

Discovery Cove is an aquatic theme park in Orlando, found just off of Central Florida Parkway and International Drive. Along with bottlenose dolphins, you'll be able to interact with other animals like rays, tropical birds and fish, and plenty of land animals.

Get out and stretch your legs.

For a great way to get in a little exercise without leaving central Orlando, check out downtown’s Lake Eola Park. There visitors enjoy strolling the grounds, especially on the path around the lake. 

Rent one of the swan-shaped paddle boats or an electric gondola boat for a fun time on the water, or bring lawn chairs to listen to one of the concerts held in the Walt Disney Amphitheater and gaze at the beautiful fountain lights.

Get wet and wild.

Should the central Florida summer get a bit steamy, there’s always Wet ’n Wild Orlando. Widely considered to be America's first water park, Wet 'n Wild Orlando features highlights like Disco H20, The Wake Zone, Wave Pool Surf Lagoon, and the always-popular Lazy River.

Feel a rush.

For the exhilaration of skydiving without the big risk, check out iFly Indoor Skydiving. It’s a 12-foot-high, 1000-horsepower vertical wind tunnel allowing anyone to fly – kids as young as three have flown, and adults as old as 103 have too.

Get some retail therapy.

Of course the Orlando area boasts a bounty of places to shop ’til you drop, but the Lake Buena Vista Factory Stores will make you want to stay on your feet. A short drive from nearby Kissimmee, the Lake Buena Vista Factory Stores are a popular destination for locals and travelers alike, yielding savings up to 75% on factory-direct, quality merchandise and goods.
