RV dreams come true in Orlando
Orlando is flat and covered in wetlands, swamps and hundreds of lakes. Lake Apopka is the largest. Many of the lakes are former sinkholes and new ones are frequent. Most people who visit Orlando never come anywhere near Orlando city. They head straight out to the world of magic. Downtown though, everyone drives. The city is spread out and it’s not safe to walk the busy streets. It’s an expensive and frustrating city to get around for both locals and tourists. Interstate 4 is an east-west highway, yet it actually runs north-south in Orlando which can be very confusing if you ask for directions. Remember to use GPS in your RV.
Camping made easy
Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground is a magical place to stay. Wake up to the fairy-tale woodlands where rabbits, ducks and armadillos roam. There’s plenty to do with an all American beach, impressive pool areas and family entertainment.
Tropical Palms Resort & Campground is located just minutes from all the popular theme parks and KOA Lake Whippoorwill has a breathtaking location with lake-view campsites.
More than Mickey
Rather than visiting a theme park where a track guides you through water, why not take to the actual water on a Kayak Eco-tour and explore the headwaters of the Everglades. Or just avoid excitement altogether and relax in a world-class spa. The Grand Bohemian Hotel spa and Waldorf Astoria Spa are luxurious options.
After dark see magic in action at the Amway Centre downtown - home of the Orlando Magic NBA basketball team. Basketball season runs from October to June. Take your RV to space! Or as close as you can get, at Cape Canaveral and the Kennedy Space Centre. Occasional rocket launches and loads of artefacts keep tourists coming back.
Leave the bustle and head to the beach for a day trip. St. Pete Beach, Clearwater Beach and Tarpon Springs are only about a two-hour drive away via Interstate 4. Or hit the surf at Cocoa Beach, closest to Orlando.
What to eat
Far from serving only theme-park junk food, Orlando has become a sophisticated dining destination in its own right. Ravenous Pig is a foodie haven that’s on everyone’s lips. If you’re wondering why, try the decadent Pig Tails with Chocolate Espresso Sauce. Four Rivers Smokehouse is likewise an institution that can’t be passed up. The Angus Brisket and St. Louis Ribs are fall-off-the-bone, mouth-wateringly good. For cheap eats, South American Cuisine Amazonas Latin Grill does some tasty treats for less than a fiver, or follow your nose to the roast beef sandwich shop on Brumby Avenue – Beefy King.
It would be rude to leave Orlando without dinner and a show. Comedians, actors, acrobats and dancers will entertain you while you noisily chew through their performance. Arabian Nights, Treasure Tavern and Sleuths Mystery Dinner are some of the best.
An inside guide to the locals
A few quick facts on Orlando folk:
- Orlando is conservative, despite its thrill-seeking ways.
- Walt Disney is not frozen inside Cinderella’s Castle.
- Orlando is home to the fastest-growing Puerto Rican community in the country.
- Many Orlando locals have worked in the parks at some point. They’re the ones that won’t leave a stray piece of trash forgotten on the side of the street.
- The official population count in 2012 was 249,562.
For the thrill seekers
If you’re going to do it, do it right. These are the best rides in Orlando:

Burning hot to very wet…
There are two major seasons in Orlando. One is hot and rainy (May-September), the other is dry and cool (October-April). In the peak of summer, temperatures can rise to around 37 degrees and thunderstorms occur daily. Hurricanes are frequent enough to pose problems, but generally fizzle out before reaching so far inland.
