Downtown Orlando boasts the Orlando Museum of Art, an interactive science center and a large stadium, the Florida Citrus Bowl. The downtown area feels a bit less cosmopolitan, and focuses on entertainment and family friendly dining. Minutes away from downtown is Leu Gardens, 50 acres of meandering trails and beautifully maintained gardens, including the largest collection of camellias in the country. Originally called the Orlando Stadium when it was constructed in 1936, the Florida Citrus Bowl is one of the largest stadiums in Florida, holding over 70,000 people. This stadium has hosted World Cup Soccer, college and professional football, Olympic soccer, and Supercross.
Getting Around Orlando
The best way to get around Orlando is by car. Public transit and shuttle options exist, but a car is by far the easiest and most convenient transportation to access the numerous local theme parks and beaches.
