“There’s no other city in the United States – the world, even – that celebrates childhood quite like Orlando, Florida,” according to the article titled “Best Family Vacations in the USA”.
“The feeling that you get when you catch the light off Epcot Center’s Spaceship Earth (found in Walt Disney World Resort®, of course); or from your first sip of Butterbeer in Hogsmeade (located inside Universal Orlando Resort®); or when you witness the soaring heights of Shamu’s flips (during the One Ocean water show at SeaWorld®) – all prove that being kid is about your state of mind, not age,” according to the article.
“The notion that only young ones will enjoy this city’s charms is just that – a notion. In reality, Orlando has a little of this and a little of that to appeal to all ages, and there’s more to do here than visit theme parks. The subtropical climate is great for golfing and the downtown city landscape is too attractive not to explore,” the article contends.
Who can argue that Orlando doesn’t have a great climate when the Central Florida city averages 233 days per year when the weather is predominantly sunny?
According to , Orlando also has a Comfort Index of 81 out of 100 where a higher number is better. (The average U.S. Comfort Index is 54.) The Comfort Index takes into account the average daily highs and lows and the number of days annually that the temperature range between 70 to 80 degrees. It also penalizes cities where there is excessive humidity when summer dew points are high.
Because of the great climate, Orlando is home to a variety of outdoor forms of sports and recreation: Hiking, golfing, paddle boating, horseback riding, hot air ballooning, and kayaking are only a sampling of what the city has to offer visitors and natives alike. Plus, the weather is perfect for other outdoor activities like farmers’ markets as well as pub and wine crawls, year-round. There’s also a vibrant eco-tourism industry in Orlando for those interested in birding and other nature-inspired activities. As an added bonus and only a short drive away, the Atlantic Ocean beckons visitors with its serene settings and sand-castle-building fun on uncrowded beaches sure to please young and old alike.
If Major League soccer is your passion, you’ll love Orlando, home to the Orlando City Soccer C lub Lions (men’s) and the Pride (women’s) teams! The teams play at Orlando City Stadium, 655 W Church St, which opened with the 2017 season.
According to visitorlando.com, Orlando has plenty offer any traveler seeking adventure. Of course, there are the family-friendly theme parks to explore in the city known as the “Theme Park Capital of the World.”®
The website touts the classic Magic Kingdom® at Walt Disney World® Resort to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™ at Universal Orlando® Resort, saying: “There’s a world for everyone to escape into! Experience a wonderland of ocean animals at SeaWorld® Orlando. Discover fun for the whole family at LEGOLAND® Florida. . .or sneak a peek behind the scenes with VIP theme park experiences,” the website added. “The parks always find new ways to create lasting memories, year after year!”
