For Belinda of BusyMindThinking. Since my header shows the Orlando skyline at night, I thought I would give you a glimpse of Orlando by day. Who doesn’t know Orlando, right? I live in the Lake Conway area near the International Airport, just on the edge of the downtown area of Orlando. Not so touristy over here. More like a small town within a big city.
This is the downtown area by day. We have a population of about 250,000 metro and 2 mil in the surrounding areas that include the resort areas South to Longwood North.
The flora, foliage and flowers are fantastic here year round.
This is my cousin’s nudist resort, Cypress Cove Resort. This is why I came to Florida 16 years ago.
Everyone knows Disney and Epcot, but there are many other parks here; Universal Studios and Citywalk, Islands of Adventure,, Sea World, Aquatica and Discovery Cove, The Holy Lands, Olde Towne, Harry Potter’s World, Legoland and many more…never a dull moment. Over 52 million people pass through the gates at Disney annually.
The new Amway Arena draws a crowd for sporting events and music concerts
There are literally hundreds of resorts like this one. We have over 400,000 hotel rooms in Orlando, and 37,000 restaurants. That makes for a lot of traffic..
Most hotels have a water feature of some sort, like this lazy river.
One of the nicest benefits to living in Central Florida is that the beach is only an hour away in either direction, East and we have the sunrise over the Atlantic, West and we have the sunset over the Gulf. It is fun to try to do both in one day.
Good night Belinda. I hope you enjoyed your tour! Sorry I was so late getting this up.
