Orlando, Florida is known around the world as the home of Walt Disney World, and the perfect location for the ultimate family vacation. While it is both of these, Orlando is also so much more. There are countless attractions and sights that will appeal to both the young and young at heart. Beyond the glitz and excitement of the theme parks, water parks and other bold attractions, there are a wealth of outdoor activities. Hiking, swimming, canoeing, kayaking, biking, snorkelling and scuba diving opportunities all exist in the many surrounding parks such as Blue Spring State Park, Lake Eola Park and Lake Louisa State Park.
