10 Reasons Why Orlando is Best For...

Orlando is much more than a brilliant destination for family fun. This bustling city in Central Florida offers the whole package to the 50 million-plus holidaymakers who come here in search of a fun break each year.

But they don't just come for the roller-coaster rides. Orlando may be the home of seven of the world's theme parks - including Walt Disney World Resort, Universal Orlando Resort and SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment - but there's plenty more to do, too. And it's not just families who can have fun in this city.

Orlando's location near some of the most beautiful parkland and wetlands in Florida makes it the ideal place for adventure seekers and visitors who like to mix a little activity with theme park thrills. From horse-riding, cycling, skydiving and quad-biking, kayaking through alligator-infested swamps and watching wildlife from the decks of a river cruise - the options are endless.

Urbane pleasures are plentiful, too. Culture fans are spoilt for choice with performances by world-class troupes and local theatre companies, musical spectacles and comedy shows. Classical and rock concerts, galleries and museums add to the sheer variety of entertainment. Sports fans can catch the local indoor arena football team, basketball and ice hockey teams. Plus there are sports to take part in, from 10-pin bowling to golf.

Shoppers can fill their bags with the latest fashions from Gucci to Gap at Orlando's 12 area outlet malls, shopping centers and boutiques. And when they're done pounding the pavements, there are more than two dozen luxury top-quality resort and day spas for a little pampering. Then there's the wining and dining, from cool lounges and gourmet restaurants to sports bars.
