Located in Central Florida, it is the center of the Orlando metropolitan area, and as of 2019, Orlando had an estimated city-proper population of 287,442, making it the 71st-largest city in the United States, the fourth-largest city in Florida, and the state's largest inland city.

Orlando is a city that runs on Disney Magic it s almost become shorthand for the Magic Kingdom Park. And that s just the big opening number on the area s Disney parade, which includes Animal Kingdom, Epcot, and even themed resorts. If that isn t enough abracadabra, families can head to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter part of Universal. But Orlando isn t all high-octane activities. Those seeking quiet can take refuge in the natural beauty of Harry P. Leu Gardens or one of many day spas. And Orlando s James Beard-nominated restaurants are a far cry from fairground food.
