I’m pretty sure the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Orlando, Florida is Mickey Mouse. There is more to Orlando, Florida than just Disney. Orlando is home to famous theme parks like Universal Studios and SeaWorld.

While theme parks in Orlando are filled with so much to do with friends and family, there is so much to do in Orlando itself.



Regardless of your plans, Orlando has beautiful places to stay. There are great places to stay near popular theme parks as well as a variety downtown and less than 10 minutes from the city center. If you are planning a trip, I would recommend these properties for starters:

The Ritz Carlton Grande Lakes Orlando

ICON Park is one of Orlando’s premier entertainment destinations. The perfect place to ride, dine, drink and explore. Located in the heart of Orlando’s International Drive, ICON Park offers more than 40 amazing restaurants, bars, shops, and can’t-miss attractions. All anchored by The Wheel, an observation wheel that stands 400 feet (40 stories) in the air.

While at ICON Park, we visited the SEA LIFE Aquarium. SEA LIFE Orlando Aquarium offers a wave of underwater adventures with sea creatures from around the world. At ICON Park you can also visit Madame Tussauds Wax Museum, the infamous Orlando StarFlyer, and more. You can enjoy free parking and park admission. Learn more at IconParkOrlando.com

There are also great dining options in ICON Park. 


I highly recommend getting a rental car. While you can use a ride share service it is easy to find parking where ever you go. I used National Car Rental directly from the airport. I booked online and went straight to my car once I  landed. It was an easy process.

Thank you Visit Orlando for sponsoring a portion of my trip. We had an amazing time and can’t wait to return to Orlando. For more travel content visit my travel section HERE.
