So, whether you're a family, a couple or planning on exchanging wedding vows here, Orlando is like nowhere else on earth – it's fun, fun, fun all the way and then some!

There's also SeaWorld Orlando, Aquatica, Wet 'n Wild and Florida's newest theme park LEGOLAND Florida with over 50 rides and attractions.
Love golf? You're in luck. There are over 170 courses in Orlando – little wonder it's been voted 'North America's Golf Destination of the Year'! There are over 60 golf courses of varying degrees of difficulty are located in or around Florida.
