Home to world famous theme parks, most people skip past Orlando heading straight for Disney World and Universal Studios. However when the fantasy and thrills of the parks gets a bit too much, Orlando itself has plenty to soothe the overstimulated visitor.

Orlando would be just another Florida town if it wasn’t for the theme parks that have set up here. Visit the Universal Resort for movie themed rides galore including a whole park dedicated to the magical world of Harry Potter. The resort itself is easy to navigate and hotel guests get priority access to the parks. There’s also Walt Disney World with four separate parks as well as numerous hotels, restaurants and even golf courses. Go classic Disney at the Magic Kingdom, experience an African style safari at Animal Kingdom or travel the world at Epcot.

In Orlando itself, check out the excellent museums showing American art, from folk art and indigenous work to contemporary exhibitions. Orlando has a well developed food scene, so grab a picnic from an upmarket deli to enjoy by the lake in Harry L Peu park.
