Nestled in the heart of sunny Florida, Orlando is widely known as one of the best cities in the United States for families to visit, but the fact is that this city has something to please everyone. Disney World and Universal Studios are Orlando’s biggest attractions, and these over-the-top parks are sure to put a smile on your face regardless of your age. For an alternative adventure, head out to Gatorland to see thousands of alligators and ride a zip line over one of the pools.
“O-town” is home to some great live entertainment, like the wild acrobatics of Cirque du Soleil’s La Nouba at Downtown Disney. The Aquos Theatre at Universal CityWalk hosts the award-winning Blue Man Group, who put on a show packed with excellent music, art, technology, and humor. For a great day trip outside of Orlando, head to St. Augustine to visit the oldest city in America and see the centuries-old cobblestone streets, gleaming beaches, and the magnificent Castillo de San Marcos.
