Featured Timeshare Destination: The New Orlando
When most travelers think of Orlando, they usually think of Disney World, Universal Studios, and Seaworld… but Orlando has so much more to offer!
While visiting the parks can be great, there are so many activities, attractions, and restaurants to be seen outside the park area. Many of these attractions are located just short distance from main timeshare areas and are accessible by cabs or buses.
While still a tourist area, in recent years International Drive (I-Drive) has undergone a total transformation. What was once an outdated strip of chain restaurants and mini golf now offers a great variety of innovative restaurants and attractions.
Both vacationers and locals are excited for the opening of The Orlando Eye, the second largest observation wheel in the world. On The Orlando Eye, visitors can travel over 400 feet into the air to experience breathtaking views of the city and surrounding areas. In addition to The Orlando Eye, International Drive will soon offer Madame Tussauds’ Wax Museum, the Orlando Sea Life Aquarium, and the Skeletons: Animals Unveiled museum.
Also in the works is The Skyscraper™ at SKYPLEX™. This new megaplex will feature Central Florida’s only vertical roller coaster, an upscale arcade, rides, bars, simulators, restaurants, and retail shops.
Winter Park, Florida
Travelers looking for upscale restaurants (without a touristy feel) will feel right at home in Winter Park, Florida. Some of Central Florida’s most renowned restaurants can be found in this area, specifically on Park Avenue. In addition to the amazing dining experiences, Winter Park also offers a local farmers’ market on Saturdays with speciality drink and food trucks.
Depending on the time of year, you may also want to visit Winter Park for one of their annual festivals. The area offers a lot of programing for both locals and visitors.
