What Should I Do In Orlando When I Come Visit?!

Downtown Orlando

Orlando

This is a question we get often and although the obvious answer is Disney and Universal, Orlando has so much more to offer. With the city creating major overhauls on some of the most iconic tourist destinations, we have seen more and more entertainment popping up all around the city. Here are some of our favorites!

One of the more popular destinations we like is Escapology Orlando. This brings an all new definition to entertainment as you and 4 friends try to escape a locked room in 60 minutes or less. Make sure you bring your calm through this storm of clues and riddles.

Orlando City Soccer is making its mark on the Orlando territory and there are always tickets available when it comes to this. With an all new field, Orlando City is ready to bring soccer to the heart of Florida.

Lastly, Legoland is an experience like never before that is always popular with our little ones! No shortage of fun is here with its easy to navigate, fun and entertaining movies, shows and rides. Close to Legoland and all of these entertainment activities is Global Resort Homes. Visit our website and begin your stay today!
