With sunny days, sand beaches, sizzling nightlife and some of the most exciting attractions in the world, Orlando has everything for a great holiday.
Disney attractions aside, there is plenty more to entertain and amuse in Orlando. For example, the place to go for great concerts, Broadway shows, theatre, ballet and opera is the Bob Carr Performing Arts Centre.
The Orlando Science Centre is packed with four floors of exciting exhibitions, giant screen movies and some very engaging live attractions and activities. Go on a Dino Safari, have a Messy Afternoon or watch the alligators snap up their lunch.
You’ll find the Mamello Museum of American Art in a lovely setting on the shores of Lake Formosa. Here, you can see American art of every genre and period. Look out for the museum’s resident feline ‘greeters’ Red and Black.
For shoppers, Prime Outlets Orlando is the largest outlet center in the South-East. 175 luxury brand stores offer savings of up to 65%.
The Florida Mall is central Florida’s largest with over 260 stores spread over nearly two million square feet of shopping.
NASA’s launch HQ, the Kennedy Space Centre, is a must-see. Tour launch areas, meet veteran astronauts, see giant rockets and even sample a training session in spaceflight simulators.
Sports fans will want to explore the ESPN Wide World of Sports to watch, play and even train.

Wyndham Lake Buena Vista offers a number of ways to make your stay extra special – if you know about them! Here are our insider’s secrets for the hotel:
The Tower building has interior corridors, whilst the other accommodation has exterior ones.

Note that the ground floor at the front of the resort accommodation is actually the third floor. Ground floor is at the back, poolside.
A room at the back of the complex avoids walking through the lobby to your car in the car park.
