Action aplenty for sports fanatics and spectators
Orlando is a sports buffs’ heaven. Basketball fans can watch an NBA game at the Amway Center as Orlando Magic takes on their current Eastern Conference foes. For some post-game celebration, head to one of the watering holes on Church or Wall streets. Orlando has world-class golf courses and hosts several golf tournaments—most notably the PGA Arnold Palmer Invitational. ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Disney holds sporting events of all types year-round, and is home to the Atlanta Braves Spring Training. At Universal CityWalk, families will enjoy slam-dunk hoops at NBA City or races on the big screen at NASCAR Sports Grille. Did you know that Orlando has a pro soccer team?
