Orlando, Fla., is a wonderful place to live. Its warm climate and varied attractions entice many to move to and visit this area, and now that you’ve decided to move here, you get to enjoy everything that this city has to offer.
1. Theme Park Capital Of The World
What Orlando is perhaps most known for is its theme parks — most notably Walt Disney World. This entertainment complex opened in 1971 and welcomes 52 million visitors every year. Another highly popular Orlando-based theme park is Universal Studios Florida. It’s the ninth-most attended theme park in the world with 10 million annual visitors.
2. Family-Friendly Activities
Theme parks are not the only family-friendly activities that Orlando offers residents and visitors. Another is Old Town, where you can experience a realistic depiction of a historic Floridian community. Dozens of shops and restaurants are situated amongst its beautiful 18 acres while youngsters and those young at heart love rides on its Ferris wheel.
The community’s many parks offer additional recreational activities for the entire family. One of the most popular ones is Lake Eola Park. It’s home to arts and crafts gatherings, paddle boat rentals, a 9-mile sidewalk that encircles a lake and a stage that regularly hosts musical performances.
Orlando is also a happening city once the sun sets with an energetic nightlife scene. SAK Comedy Club provides laughter in a black box theater. Hanson’s Shoe Repair recreates what it was like during the days of prohibition. Stardust Lounge provides a way to experience Las Vegas in central Florida.
Will’s Pub offers a bit of Seattle grunge more than 3,000 miles from that famous city. Independent Bar is a nightclub that advertises itself as a place for those “who don’t like clubs.”
Sports fans have plenty of options to catch a game in Orlando. Soccer has really taken off here with the arrival of Orlando City, who started playing in MLS in 2018.
The atmospheres at its games at Exploria Stadium are electric. Meanwhile, the NBA’s Orlando Magic have called Orlando home since 1989. Its games are held at the Amway Center, which opened in 2010. The Magic played in the NBA Finals in 1995 and 2009.
Also, the University of Central Florida Knights have a dedicated fan base in the area, especially for its football and men’s basketball teams. Both have experienced tremendous success as of late.
Unless you’ll be arriving here from nearby, ensure that you’re prepared for the weather. Although it is enjoyed for many reasons as its temperatures are warm to hot throughout the year, its thunderstorms are to be respected as central Florida is the most lightning-prone area in the United States. Also note that hurricanes are always a threat from June to November.
Of course, before you can enjoy everything that the City Beautiful has to offer, you need to get yourself and all of your treasured possessions to Orlando.
That’s where Suddath Orlando residential moving comes in. This company has been helping people move to, from and around Orlando since 1938, which is when the city’s population was just 35,000, about 12% of what it is today, and decades prior to Disney World opening.
