Orlando is a favourite destination for its glorious weather, dozens of theme parks including Walt Disney World and great shopping dining and entertainment options. Wyndham Cypress Palms in Kissimmee district close by Disney World offers one- and two-bedroom condo units, sleeping between two and six and set in high-rise blocks around two swimming pools.
The resort’s amenities are extensive and family-friendly, with two outdoor pools, two hot tubs, a children’s pool, playground and games room keeping younger family members happy all day. The daily activity schedule includes pool games, arts and crafts and bingo sessions, and there’s a fitness room and clubhouse for the perfect break from everyday life in pretty, peaceful surroundings away from the clamour of downtown.
‘Spacious, clean, quiet, close to attractions, family-friendly, comfortable, home away from home’ are just a few of the positive comments about the resort on traveller review websites. Value for money is a highlight here, and Orlando itself is an exciting, year-round destination with its wide choice of food focusing on ultra-fresh seafood dishes and international cuisine and shopping opportunities that include fabulous discount malls with acres of designer bargains.
The city and its surroundings are a hub for the ever-popular game of golf, with several dozen first-class courses set in and around its perimeter or on site at its many resorts and upscale hotels. For something a little different, a day exploring the city’s ethnic enclaves reveals authentic eateries, quaint stores and a glimpse into the long-standing communities integrated within the city.
Florida has so much to see and do within the short time of the average holiday, making car hire the best means for taking longer day trips to places such as Cape Canaveral with its Kennedy Space Museum. One of the world’s must-sees, it’s around a four-hour drive on good roads, with plenty of stop-offs for burgers and cold drinks, and if your timing’s right you may even catch the unforgettable experience of a launch.
Orlando’s international airport is located just 10kms from the city, accessible via the Lynx public transportation network or by taxi, shuttle bus or hired car. Direct flights to and from the UK and America’s major international air hubs make getting here straightforward. Getting around in town is by theme park shuttles, subway, inexpensive taxis and self-drive, although avoiding the downtown area during rush hour is advisable.
