Orlando is one of the most popular destinations in Florida, and a stay in one of our Orlando vacation rentals is a great way to experience all that this pleasant city offers, including abundant sunshine, a vibrant performing arts scene, and a professional basketball team.
Florida’s largest inland city, Orlando is home to more than a dozen theme parks, winning it the title "Theme Park Capital of the World." Every year, families, couples, and vacationers from all corners of the globe flock to this entertainment mecca seeking fun and excitement at Disney World, SeaWorld, Universal Studios, and many more world-famous theme parks.
Theme Parks in Orlando
Both kids and adults will love the amusement park rides and hanging out with Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, and the rest of Disney gang for an unforgettable time at Disney World. Bring the kids for a makeover at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique in Cinderella's Castle, or take a spooky tour through the Haunted Mansion. For more science-based fun, head over to Epcot to see the Advanced Training Lab or to watch a short film on conservation.
Another sure bet for family fun is a visit to SeaWorld Orlando, where trained dolphins, orca whales, and sea lions perform dazzling tricks and splash the audience. Come prepared to get wet! You might get to meet a dolphin or a sea lion close up - or even a shark or a penguin!
Things to Do in Orlando
Our vacation rentals are in close proximity to several of the world-class performing arts centers around the city. Take a trip downtown to see a Broadway musical when it comes through the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, or listen to the classical sounds of the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra. After the show, grab the girls and enjoy a memorable ladies' night in Orlando - from half-price drinks at Blue Martini to a thrilling escape room game, there's always so much to do in this dynamic, metropolitan city.
If you’re a sports fan, Orlando offers plenty of sporting events from arena football to minor league baseball, and the city also plays host every year to spring training for two Major League Baseball teams. If you’re a hoops fan, head over to the Amyway Center, where you’ll find the city’s home team: the Orlando Magic.
It's not far to world-class golf at Champions Gate, the foremost golf resort in the area. Work on your swing out on the green, or have a bite to eat in the Pipers Grille sports lounge while others in your group play.
Day Trips from Orlando
Because of Orlando’s location in sunny, lively Central Florida, many great day trips are possible. Lake Apopka, the third largest lake in Florida, is an easy 24-mile drive from downtown. Here, kids and adults can spend the day fishing, boating, sunbathing, water skiing, and many more activities in 48 square miles of lake and shoreline. The charming and historic Old Town of Kissimmee and the shores of Lake Tohopekaliga are just 22 miles away for more lakeside fun.
Cape Canaveral, home to the Kennedy Space Center and launching site of NASA’s rockets, is worth the 55-mile drive east to experience rocket launches, astronaut appearances, and daily tours of the facility.
