If you want to take the family on holiday to a destination in America where there is an abundance of fun things to do that have plenty of attractions you should consider going to Orlando in Florida. Not only is there an abundance of holiday attractions in Orlando, there are also some amazing beaches such as Cocoa Beach and Daytona Beach which are within an hour or so away. Here are just three of the best Orlando attractions that you could visit on your Florida holiday.
Disney World: Without a doubt when you think about Orlando Florida, Disney World is probably the first thing that many people think of. There is so much stuff to do at Disney World that I could write for days and still not cover all that is on offer. There are water rides, river jungle river cruises, parades, fireworks, and lots of themed areas for many of children’s favourite characters as well as the characters themselves too just waiting to meet your children! There is plenty to keep children of all ages and adults amused for an entire family holiday. A lot of people think about returning to Disney World just to try to see some of the stuff that they have missed the first time around.
Universal Studios: The Universal Studios theme park in Orlando is another great attraction. There are lots of rides and shows to experience first-hand, there are even live concerts for the kids to see and sing along to. One of the areas that are extremely popular is The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. In this area the world of Harry Potter is brought to life so that you can explore the Hogwarts gates, passageways and classrooms or even visit some of the magical film’s well know shops such as the Three Broomsticks and Hogsmeade. The Wizarding World of Harry Potter also a state of the art ride that takes you on a journey through the world of Harry Potter that let you see many of the Hogwarts rooms along with magical creatures.
SeaWorld Orlando: SeaWorld Orlando is another attraction that is often on people’s itinerary. There are lots of aquatic animals to see including killer whales, dolphins, sharks, stingrays, turtles and many more. The Shark Encounter is always popular; walking through a 60 foot long tunnel you get to see sharks from an underwater ocean floor point of view. The floor even moves to give you that nautical feeling and test your sea legs! If you love dolphins you can take part in an up close tour that allows you to see how they are looked after and even take part in training sessions that include touching these gracious and friendly creatures just like your own personal Flipper movie.
These are just three of the attractions to visit with your family in Orlando, and there are many more. The only guarantee is that you will all have fun and want to go back!
