Most Popular Area Attractions

Amway Center

The top venue for sports, concerts, and entertainment, Orlando's Amway Center is an event highlight of the central Florida region. Opened on October 1, 2010, this state of the art center can be arranged in multiple seating configurations, fitting between 16,486 and 20,000 fans and attendees.

Part of Orlando's master downtown redevelopment plan and located near Lake Eola Park, SeaWorld Orlando, Universal Orlando, and Walt Disney World, the area hosts professional basketball games, college basketball games, ice hockey games, front stage and end stage concerts, arena football games, and wrestling matches. Basketball fans will likely recognize the arena right away - it is home to the Orlando Magic and it has previously hosted the 2012 NBA All-Star Game.

Discovery Cove

Make some new dolphin friends on your next visit to Orlando. Discovery Cove is an aquatic theme park in Orlando, found just off of Central Florida Parkway and International Drive. Owned and operated by SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment, Discovery Cove allows guests the chance to swim and interact with bottlenose dolphins in controlled environments. 

Along with bottlenose dolphins, you'll be able to interact with other animals like rays, tropical birds and fish, and plenty of land animals – it's always an adventure at Discovery Cove. The park does have a max guest capacity of 1,300 per day, creating a more intimate experience. Get there early! The dolphin swim experience at Discover Cove is a 30-minute long experience popular amongst many of the more cavalier guests. 

iFly Indoor Skydiving

A top attraction, and one of the most unique experiences you'll have in Orlando, iFly Indoor Skydiving should be on any travel agenda when visiting Florida. Built in 1997, iFly Orlando is a 1000 horsepower vertical wind tunnel where you'll experience the thrill of skydiving without the heights or dangers. 

The 12-foot high, open flow cylinder has a trained attendant with you at all times. Great for almost every member of the family – kids as young as three have flown, and adults as old as 103 have also been known to fly – iFly Orlando will make your visit to the Orlando area unforgettable. No experience is needed, and you can even book your flight online. The entire experience lasts about one hour.

Lake Buena Vista Golf Course

Rated four stars by Golf Digest, Lake Buena Vista Golf Course offers a world class Disney experience on and off the course. Set amidst a backdrop of luscious pine forests, the course is a premier destination for golf in the Orlando region. Lake Buena Vista takes golfers above and beyond the country club atmosphere, as it pulls in the magic of Disney using fairways intermingled with tranquil canals and lakeside villas.

Not only does Lake Buena Vista offer a world class course, it is features a cozy clubhouse and state of the art practice facility, located at Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort and Spa. Included in the practice facility are four driving ranges and four putting greens, all ample opportunities to hone your skills.

Lake Eola Park

Lake Eola Park, located in downtown Orlando, was developed in 1888 from land donated from a variety of families. Eola Lake was formed from a natural 80-foot sinkhole, similar to many of the state's lakes. Throughout the years, there has been a zoo, an equestrian race track and even a dance area with pier, built on the 43-acre park site.

In 1912, the original signature park fountain was built, followed by a second fountain installed in 1957. It was renovated in 1988 and continues to be an area  landmark. While in Orlando, be sure to visit the park for an enjoyable day outdoors.

Park 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.

Bring lawn chairs to listen to one of the concerts held in the Walt Disney Amphitheater and gaze at the beautiful fountain lights. At the end of the day, check into one of the local Best Western hotels and enjoy comfortable accommodations and excellent guest services.

Orange County Convention Center

Opened in 1983, the Orange County Convention Center is a major landmark in Orlando. Hosting an array of different events throughout the year, the OCCC is found just off of the Martin Andersen Beachline Expressway on International Drive. With 7 million square feet in total space, the OCCC is the second largest convention center in the United States. The only one bigger is Chicago's McCormick Place. 

When you're visiting Orlando or the Orlando area, make your way to the Orange County Convention Center and check out any number of the events being hosted – from the weird and the wacky, to the downright exciting. Keep an eye out for the Mary Kay Career Conference, the Europa Games & Get Fit Expo, the International Bowl Expo, and Miss America's Outstanding Teen Competition is always popular.

Rock Springs Run State Reserve

Featuring 17 miles of pristine trails, Rock Springs Run State Reserve is the perfect getaway for avid hikers, bikers, and outdoorsmen. Guided trail rides and horse rentals are available along the Wekiva River, just minutes outside of Orlando in the Space Coast region of Florida.
