ORLANDO: MUCH MORE THAN MICKEY ...
The city of Orlando, Florida, is immediately associated with theme parks. But the city is much more than the Magic Kingdom of Walt Disney.
Living in Orlando can be much more stimulating than you think. The quality of life is great, the city quiet, with everything found in other major centers in the United States.
Lake Eola is beautiful, surrounded by rows of oaks and interesting neighborhoods such as Lake Eola Heights and Thornton Park, which guard houses typical of Old Orlando, the historic center that is nearby, reveals a little of Orlando's past, before the arrival of the parks.
The Beautiful City, one of the nicknames of the north city of Miami, is also an important financial center, a shopping paradise, both for those looking for high luxury brands and for those who like an outlet (and who doesn't?). Its restaurants are starred, as are the hotels inside and outside the parks.
Orlando has other predicates in addition for being the World Capital of Theme Parks. Florida Hospital is a reference; Central Florida Research Park, the nation's seventh largest research park, is located here; as well as Patrick Air Force Base, Cape Canaveral Air Force Station and Kennedy Space Center.
And, if you think that cinema is only made in Los Angeles, you were wrong: Movies, series, animation, and even electronic games are produced by Universal Studios, Disney's Hollywood Studios and Tiburon Entertainment Electronic Arts. And taught at Full Sail University, UCF College of Arts and Humanities and Florida Interactive Entertainment Academy.
