Orlando, for most people conjures up the image of theme parks, mainly Walt Disney World, but it has a lot more to offer than that. In fact, Disney is technically not in Orlando but rather nearby Lake Buena Vista. Downtown Orlando is a growing area centered around Orange Avenue that is packed with bars, clubs and restaurants, as well as theaters and concert venues. A few blocks away is Lake Eola Park, a picturesque park situated around a swan-filled lake. The area also offers excellent golfing, gardens, parks and museums.
Orlando is one of the biggest tourist destinations because of the nearby theme parks and resorts. Close to International Drive is Universal Orlando Resort, which includes two theme parks, three hotels and a large shopping district. SeaWorld Orlando is a marine theme park featuring Kraken, the biggest rollercoaster in the Orlando area, as well as Believe, the Shamu adventure.
