Orlando also known as The City Beautiful, is famous for some of the most spectacular theme parks, in first place the world-famous Walt Disney World Resort, Universal Orlando Resort and SeaWorld Orlando which attract millions of domestic and foreign tourists each year. Orlando's theme parks are an absolute paradise for children as well as adults.

The world's largest and most famous theme park, the Walt Disney World Resort was started by Walt Disney himself in the 1960's. He died before the completion of the Magic Kingdom in 1971 but his vision was even expanded over the following decades. Today, the park consists of four theme parks, two water parks, themed on-site hotel and a large number of other attractions offering an unique entertainment to both children and their parents. However, do not search for the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando because the park is actually located on the outskirts of the city in the towns of Lake Buena Vista and Kissimmee about 21 miles (34 kilometers) southwest of Orlando.

The Walt Disney World Resort is definitely the top attraction but the other two Orlando's theme parks are not any less spectacular. The Universal Orlando Resort located close to the International Drive southwest of downtown offers an ultimate fun and unforgettable experience for the entire family. SeaWorld Orlando is a 200 acres marine-life based zoological park located between the Walt Disney World Resort and downtown Orlando. In addition to an interactive animal exhibits and live shows, SeaWorld Orlando also features fun rides and a number of other attractions which should not be missed if visiting Orlando.

You will not regret if taking a walking tour in the downtown historic district encompassing eight blocks of approximately 60 historic buildings surrounded by modern skyscrapers. These buildings were built between the 1880's and 1940's and reveal the city's dynamic history as well as evolution of Orlando's architecture. You will be able to admire the Queen Anne, Twentieth Century Commercial Style, Art Deco, Mediterranean Revival and Art Moderne styles on the tour route of approximately 2,5 miles (4 kilometers). Other attractions that make Orlando a perfect holiday destination include the Gatorland known as the “Alligator Capital of the World”, Ripley's Believe It or Not!, Harry P. Leu Gardens, Orlando Science Center and Arboretum of the University of Central Florida. The city truly offers something for everyone and you can be sure that you will a great time if visiting Orlando with your kids or on your own.
