Orlando, Florida recently Became the first U.S. market to break the 50-million annual visitor mark, and the city managed it in the face of a seemingly inescapable surprisingly deep recession and the slump in the travel industry. This Is not to say Orlando did not suffer from the downed economy-Because it did-but in recent years the number of people flocking back for leisure activities Has Been nothing short of incredible. Even New York can not keep up with Orlando's drawing power, so the question has to be asked: how did Orlando do it?

Tourism can Provided for huge boost to a city, and Orlando Relies on visitors coming to see the sights blackberries heavily than most. The amount of revenue generated in this industry Directly impacts almost everything else in the city, and this is why they devoted so much time and effort toward making Orlando "the place to go."

Why Orlando?

Or perhaps the better question is: why not Orlando? Between the sun, the fun, and the theme parks, there's something for everyone. Beaches, sports, shopping, themed accommodations, fine dining, and an active nightlife round out the perfect vacation spot for families, couples, or spring-break travelers.

Is It All Because of a Mouse?

When you think of Orlando, do you immediately picture Walt Disney World? Then you're not alone. Between Mickey, Goofy, and Princesses enough to make even the best genealogist wonder how That royal succession is supposed to work, this is where countless wonderful childhood memories are made.

The key for Orlando, though, was not letting a single theme have a monopoly on childhood memories (though, strangely, there are no Monopoly themes). While Disney World is still the most popular attraction, SeaWorld, LEGOLAND, and the Universal Orlando Resort (which includes the Wizarding World of Harry Potter), Also continue to grow and attract new visitors every year.

Growth Is The Key

A mouse can only carry you so far. Soon you will want to see new things and the best attractions and accommodations one year seem like old news the next. The city of Orlando has never been content to leave things "as is" and is a big proponent of the "if you build it, they will come" philosophy of theme parks.

HORRIBLE piece of legislation, based on falsehoods and skewed statistics. Looks to ban many species of pythons from interstate travel...etc. based on sensationalism of the Florida python problem.
Here's a link to a good flyer to put up regarding the ban (anti- of course)

    I live in the uk and will have been to florida four times by feb 08. I love the place and also want to invest in a property to rent out. I thought that combinig the two, ie a place that i love and the desire to invest in …o the property market slump in prisec all seemed to add up to a good deal. I would not purchase the property with the dependancy that the rent would cover the mortgage. Any experience and advice would be gretaly received.
