For countless years, Orlando has been considered the #1 Vacation Destinations in the World! There are several reasons why, our consistent warm weather, only one hour from the beach, theme parks like Mickey's World or Walt Disney World, Harry Porter's Universal Studios & Islands of Adventure, and Sea World's Discovery Cove where you can literally swim with the Dolphins. Another reason is if you love shopping Orlando is known for Premium Outlets Stores. We are home to the biggest designers such as Armani, Fendi, Burberry, Ferragamo, Lacoste, Coach, Polo, DKNY, Nike, Reebok, and Liz Claiborne to name a few. Also, Orlando is now known for great sports teams such as the NBA's Orlando Magic and my alma mater the University of Central Florida. GO KNIGHTS!
