Located in central Florida, about 50 miles from the Atlantic coast, Orlando is one of the world's
most popular family destinations. The three major reasons are Walt Disney World complex, Sea
World and Universal Studios. Besides the thousands of related services such as hotels and
restaurants and a modern airport, the city's economy is also boosted by a flourishing citrus
industry, the manufacturing of aerospace and electronic parts and a warm winter season.
Downtown Orlando is attractive with brick streets, parks and gardens. The city's entertainment
venue includes something for everyone: pubs, mystery theaters, ballet and opera performances,
and an annual Shakespeare Festival.
