Orlando Travel Guide

The city 'built on the peel of an orange' has also established itself as part of Florida's high-tech corridor. The Mickey Mouse draw card has turned Orlando into the third-ranking US destination for overseas travellers, after Los Angeles and New York City.

Reige's Firearms rent out real semiautomatics for a blast; and Skull Kingdom is endearingly low-tech. While everybody knows the big-name theme parks, they've spawned smaller versions in most of our home countries, the real treasures of Orlando's psyche are the sidekicks: Holyland is peddling God.

So you'd better watch your step in this 21st-century boomtown: according to a 1998 study, the stampede to Orlando has made it the most dangerous place in the US for pedestrians. Orlando boasts not only the space technology industries focused on the Florida Space Coast but a healthy dose of bits and bytes makers as well.
