From Walt Disney World, to Universal Orlando Resort, to Downtown Orlando, to Little Brazil, and everything in between, Orlando is an extraordinary city. The one-stop destination for theme park enthusiasts does indeed have a lot to offer on that front, in addition to SeaWorld and even Holy Land. However, anyone who makes it a point to visit Orlando will discover that this city has everything. Whether a visitor wants shopping, fine-dining, local flavor, ethnic enclaves, or just a great place to walk around and take in the skyscrapers, Orlando is capable of accommodating someone’s wishes nicely.
There is no question that ever since the city was officially incorporated in 1885, it has done nothing but grow.
Shopping, restaurants, bars, tennis, golf, skyscrapers, and ethnic districts are just a few of the things that define this remarkable city. For shopping, Orlando does a nice job of combing local shops with major chains, in addition to huge malls and outlet centers. For malls, the Artegon Marketplace and The Florida Mall are two of the best. Outlet malls include Orlando Premium Outlets on Vineland Drive, Orlando Premium Outlets on International Drive, and the Lake Buena Vista Factory Stores. No matter what someone is looking for, Orlando has a shopping area or specific address that can help.
Orlando is also very well known for its ethnic diversity. To appreciate this fact in greater detail, Little Saigon and Little Brazil are both highlights worth exploring. Little Saigon is home to grocery stores, herbal shops, and a variety of additional locally-owned businesses. Little Brazil features restaurants, shops, bakeries, and locations that offer items that quite frankly cannot be found anywhere else. The Little India area is yet another example of the deep ethnic melting pot that defines Orlando. Although the area is a little more on the spread out side of things, but the area still offers cultural points of interest that serve to create one of the most unique destinations in the entire city.
Restaurants in Orlando is another major point to consider. Visitors can find American restaurants like 310 Lakeside, Peruvian delicacies at El Inka Grill Ceviche, Asian spots like the Funky Monkey Wine Company, and Latin destinations such as Cuba Libre. When considering the range of restaurants that can be found in Orlando, this thought can be extended towards nightclubs and bars, as well. Both Central Avenue and Orange Boulevard offer some of the hottest drinking spots away from the theme parks.
