Primed with fantastic food options, vibrant nightlife and unique homegrown activities, Orlando has never been as good as it is right now.

No city does nightlife better than the City Beautiful. For those who like to let loose their inner chanteuse, try Universal Orlando’s CityWalk’s Rising Star. This unique karaoke experience puts you right in on the action with a live-band and backup singers to boot! Not a singer? Take a trip to Lake Eola and cuddle up close to that special someone on a swan-shaped paddleboat ride under the stars.
Newly Added Attractions
If you’ve had Hawaii at the top of your vacation bucket list then you’re in luck. Newly opened Universal’s Volcano Bay Water Theme Park is everything you never knew you needed but always knew you wanted all rolled into one amazing waterpark. Disney’s Animal Kingdom just welcomed a new exhibit welcoming guests to the sensational world of Pandora as imagined from the blockbuster film of the same name.
In a town with a flair for the dramatic, it should come as no surprise that Orlando offers some pretty unique dining options.
