Orlando welcomes more than 52 million visitors every year and that's enough to define its popularity all over the world. The major credit for this world-recognition goes to the Walt Disney World, which is situated 18 miles south in Lake Buena Vista. The County seat of Orange County, Orlando is known as 'the Theme Park Capital of the World'.
Just like its nickname, 'The City Beautiful' Orlando takes pride in its adorable landscapes with cultural attractions, Lake Eola and surrounding theme parks. The list of theme parks doesn't end at Disney and Universal though. Some other amazing parks include SeaWorld, Gator Land and Legoland Florida. Let's face it- most of the theme parks are not even inside the city. You need to drive a few miles away to catch them up. However, Orlando is certainly not just meant for the purpose of being a gateway to these popular tourist attractions. There are several museums, parks and activities you can rely on if theme parks are not your cup of tea. You can even go for a zipline safari into the Forever Florida which is a wildlife conservation area. Sites like John Kennedy Space Center and Loch Haven Park are totally worth a visit.
