Orlando is located in central Florida in Orange County. The "City Beautiful" is also known as the "Theme Park Capitol of the World" and is home to nearly a dozen theme parks (Disney, Universal, etc.) but there is more to it than that. As with any great city there are museums, theaters, great restaurants and, of course, shopping. It is a subtropical climate with swamplands, beaches, and lakes where you can find all kinds of outdoor activities to fill your spare time. To find out more visit these websites:
