Brief Introduction & Sources

Orlando, Florida

ORLANDO, FLORIDA

Orlando is a small city in west central Florida. Come in at Orlando International Airport, or take advantage of the numerous highways that converge at Orlando - the East West Expressway, the Beeline Expressway, the Central Florida Greeneway, and Interstate 4. Once you're there, aside from the wonderful weather and theAtlantic Ocean only about 40 to 50 miles away, there is entertainment galore.

In Orlando the whole family will enjoy a Universal Studios tour of the Orlando Toy Train Station & Museum. On your way to Lake Buena Vista is Sea World of Florida, always a fun day.

Lake Buena Vista is a short hop southwest, and here you will find Walt Disney World and the Epcot Center, all the water sports of Lake Buena Vista, the Magic Kingdom and Disney-MGM Studios.

This is Alligator Country, so don't forget to get out and interact with the Florida wildlife, and expect to hear a little Cajun music while you all settle down for some great seafood and Caribbean cuisine.

But there's more to Florida than fun and games. Historical monuments, military establishments, art and science museums and cultural centers are available for exploration. And water sports is serious business in this tropical paradise. But, as always when near the ocean - keep an eye on the weather and be careful. Now go have fun!
