Orlando,”The Theme Park Capital of the World”. And we can add a new title: “The Tourism Capital of United States”. Most Florida visitors stop in Orlando (from a brief one day excursion to a full week of park visits). Over 72 million visitors 2017 makes it a bigger tourist destination than even New York City and almost twice as big as Las Vegas. No other American city comes close.
Florida visitors want to see this remarkable mix of the world’s largest theme parks and the surrounding areas, the chaotic metropolitan area and its scenic nature.
In addition to the large and well-known theme parks there are hundreds of other activities and new ones are added each year.
