One of the most popular tourist destinations in the US, the Orlando area is best known as the home of Walt Disney World, Universal Studios, SeaWorld and myriad other attractions.

While the southwestern corridor is filled with outlet malls, hotels, restaurants and entertainment complexes, the older downtown area retains the charm of early 20C Florida.
