Orlando, Orlando, Orlando.

What is it about Orlando?

Is it just the Theme Parks?

Maybe it is but maybe it’s the fact that because it holds ‘The Happiest Kingdom’ it has become the ‘Happiest Place on Earth’.

There can be few places that all members of the family, even the kids, are happy to go to.

Every day hundreds of planes land filled with happy people.

Take the entire family any other place and somebody won’t want to go…

Kids don’t want to visit Grandma. Pop doesn’t want to spend two weeks with the kids. Mom just want’s a happy family and sun.

Well, here they can have it all.

Sure it’s over commercialised but so are our lives.

Orlando is a perfect reflection of modern life. Fast, busy and packed with all the things we would like to do all the time….

Food – everything you could ever want at almost any quality and price range.

Entertainment – come on Las Vegas has the casinos but Orlando has, well, everything. You can even gamble if you want (need to have your sea legs with you though)

Shopping – Discount Malls and ‘regular’ shopping. Discount Malls for all and regular shopping for international visitors to marvel at all those American things that they can’t get.

Transport – Well the car is king but as expected the Rental selection is vast. Warm weather tempts a convertible. Vacation mentality draws you to the special set of wheels that you can’t afford for everyday use. As a ‘Great American City’ Orlando has great communication by road and is improving and tweaking them constantly. Check out - - for an overview of the system.
