Flights to Orlando land at Orlando Airport, which is the busiest airport in Florida, and reaching the centre of the city is simple by taxi, bus or rental car. Florida is a large state and often the easiest way to explore is to include car hire as part of a holiday package. The road system is straightforward and Orlando is an excellent base from which to visit other areas.
Orlando is synonymous with Universal Studios, SeaWorld and Walt Disney World. These are attractions that must be visited, but there is more to the city. Gatorland is a local attraction that many families enjoy, as children of all ages can get up close and personal with the state's native alligators. There are also a number of water parks for families to visit, as well as night-time spectacles such as Cirque du Soleil.
Shopping is an important pastime, so set time aside after arriving on any flights Orlando bound.

Florida Mall has over 250 stores to peruse, as well as food outlets and plentiful parking. If sport is of interest, Orlando Magic is the local basketball team.
