With nearly perfect weather, it's little wonder Orlando is nicknamed “The City Beautiful.” It's also perfect for whatever type of vacation you want: active, relaxing, or in between. Get outside and enjoy the city's natural playground—surfing off sandy beaches, birding in state parks, kayaking through winding waterways, or tubing the springs—or go thrill-seeking at an amusement park. Venture to Winter Park and Thornton Park, where locals eat and drink, or treat yourself to shopping and down-time at one of the city's luxurious, family-friendly resorts.
