Hiring a car in Orlando
Holidays in Orlando, Florida, are not all about Disney, although the huge variety of theme parks are a pretty big draw! Orlando hotels tend to be clustered around the major tourist attractions, but it pays to go off the beaten track, let the kids have their fun and then take off with a car rental in Orlando. Your Orlando holiday could be based around the major theme parks, like Disney and Universal Orlando Resort, which includes Universal Studios and Universal's Island of Adventure. However, with cheap Orlando car hire, it's easy to venture beyond the theme parks and get wet in one of the many water parks.

Places to visit in Orlando
One scenic drive worth exploring is the Florida Atlantic coast, which takes in the Cape Canaveral area, Cocoa Beach and Satellite Beach. If you don't fancy venturing that far, there is Kissimmee, offering a wealth of outdoor recreation, including canoeing, kayaking, exploring the headwaters of the Everglades or air boating across Lake Toho. If it's action you're after, you can fly a real military plane in Warbird Adventures or on the shores of Lake Bryan, Buena Vista Water Sports has every water sport going. For early birds, (typically 6am start) try balloon rides for a panoramic view of the city and beyond.
The main reason most people visit Orlando is for its theme parks! Most theme parks offer vast carparks, so there's no need to worry about whether you'll be able to find a park. So, which theme parks can you visit? There's LEGOLAND, SeaWorld, Universal Studios, Discovery Code, more Disney attractions than you can poke a stick at, Epcot, and Magic Kingdom. Phew!
Outside of the fantastical realm of theme parks, there's still plenty to see and do. Orlando has its fair share of museums for the more cerebral of visitors. The Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of American Art contains the largest collection of Tiffany glass in the world, and there is also a railroad museum, a fine arts museum, and an African-American history museum. You could also head downtown to watch the Orlando Magic basketball team shoot hoops, or spend big at the Mall at Millennia, Orlando Premium Outlets International Drive and Orlando Premium Outlets Vineland Avenue. And may we suggest a day trip to Miami, about a four-hour drive away?
