Orlando is a city located in Orange County, Florida. Orlando is located in the heart of Central Florida and is intersected by Interstate 4 and the Florida Turnpike.
Once a quiet farming town, Orlando now welcomes more visitors than any other place in the state and is one of the top tourist destinations in the world. The reason, of course, is all the theme parks, including Walt Disney World, Universal studios Orlando, SeaWorld Orlando, Gatorland, and many more. Orlando is 238 miles northwest of Miami, 84 miles northeast of Tampa, 140 miles southwest of Jacksonville, 2 hours from the Gulf Coast beaches and 55 minutes from the Atlantic beaches, the nearest coastline to Orlando.
Orlando is nicknamed “The City Beautiful” and its symbol is the fountain at Lake Eola in downtown Orlando. The city’s famous attractions form the backbone of Orlando’s tourism industry, making the city the most visited American city in 2009. The city is also one of the busiest American cities for conferences and conventions. Like other major cities in the sun belt, Orlando grew rapidly during the 1980s and well into the first decade of the 21st century. Orlando is also home to the University of Central Florida, which is the second largest university in the United States in terms of enrollment (as of 2011). Orlando attracts over 51 million tourists a year (3.6 million of them are international tourists). Its main airport, the Orlando International Airport (MCO), is the thirteenth busiest airport in the United States, and the 29th busiest in the world.
As almost any resident will tell you, Orlando is a wonderful place to live. Bask in the year round sunshine, palm tree-lined streets, the many parks, and more world class golf courses than any where else. Orlando has every type of home, condo, townhouse, and other real estate to fit any need. From trendy College Park and Downtown Orlando, to the upscale Dr. Phillips, to the luxury mansions of Lake Nona, Bay Hill and Isleworth, Orlando has it all.
