“Know Before You Go”

The best vacations start with excellent planning. Very few of us like to just “wing it” when it comes to vacations and travel. The more informed you are about the destination and the different options available, the better and less stressful your trip will be. Knowing what to do and where to do it is important if you want to make the most of your time, and your money.

Questions About Orlando?

Orlando is one of the most popular destinations on the planet.  With warm year round temperatures and an abundance of sunshine, Orlando is a popular vacation spot for travelers from all across the globe. From single family vacations to large industry conferences, Orlando offers something for everyone. 

Aside from the major theme parks, Orlando also offers a plethora of shopping choices for every style, taste, and budget. Whether you prefer high-end retail or flea market bargains, your choices are practically endless. For upscale shopping and fine quality retail, visit the Mall at Millenia. If deal hunting and bartering are your forte, check out one of the many flea markets just minutes south of Orlando in Kissimmee. For those of you who love to shop ‘till you drop, get ready for the ultimate shopping experience at the Orlando Premium Outlets.  Add in the Florida Mall, countless other strip malls and shopping plazas and Orlando has a place for everything and everyone. 

When most people think of Orlando, they think of the theme parks. What they don’t think of is the wonderful array of restaurants and dining options available to them during their stay. Orlando is home to some of the best restaurants and most unique eateries. From the classic steak and baked potato to the most exotic ethnic foods, you will find it all in Orlando. The city and tourist areas are a culinary melting pot. You will find most ethnicities represented with an emphasis of Latin food. Don’t be afraid to venture out but be careful, like any city, some areas are better left to the locals. From pizza and burgers to filet mignon and caviar, there is something to satisfy every palate.  Not a culinary risk taker, no problem. Almost every major restaurant chain is represented in the Orlando area. Pick a favorite and order your regular just like back home. Of course, since you’re not at home, why not be a little more adventurous.

Orlando is a wonderful place to visit for both business and personal retreats. Like any trip though, it can be expensive. With so many things to see and do your money can go fast, especially if you don’t plan ahead. If you have questions about Orlando or are planning a trip, please send us a message. We will be happy to answer your questions. Our planning services are always free and we are happy to assist anyone regardless of whether you book your trip with CastleChat.
