Discover Orlando

Orlando may not be Florida’s biggest city – Jacksonville and Miami come first – but it’s got history to spare. The first European arrival in the region dates to the 16th century, while Orlando’s Native American roots go back centuries further. Now a top destination for international visitors, and with its own thriving culture on tap, there’s much to learn about Orlando
