Traveling in Orlando with a Rental Car
Orlando is without a doubt the most entertaining city for the whole family, and one of the most visited cities in the United States. Every week thousands of tourists from all over the world arrive at Orlando’s International Airport, located 8 miles outside the city, or to Orlando Sanford Airport. Orlando is also easily accessed by flying into Miami International Airport and from there renting a car to drive the Turnpike to find all the magic this city has to offer.
Orlando is the cradle of fascinating attractions such as those one finds in Disney World, like Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Animal Kingdon. There are also waterparks- Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach. And the attractions offered at SeaWorld Orlando, with it’s marine animal exhibitions, and Universal with it’s roller coasters, water park, and all the magic of Harry Potter. Or there’s Legoland with it’s more than 50 shows, stalls, and shops where you can buy toys and souvenirs.
Disney World also offers a wide variety of hotels, shopping centers, and is covered by a golf-course almost 40 square miles (100 square kilometers). And if we go to Downtown Disney at night we’ll find restaurants, cinemas, shaps and even perhaps an impressive show such as the unequales Cirque du Soleil.
Adventurers and fans of travel can drive a rental car on toll-road 528 and visit the Kennedy Space Center (Cabo Cañaveral for the nostalgics) located an hour away from Orlando’s center, where you can see Nasa’s rockets that made history.
Those visiting Orlando can do major discount shopping en Premium Outlets Orlando, or visit The Mall at Millenia or The Florida Mall. Or they can do their shopping in the open air in Park Avenue, in the center of Winter Park, with fashion boutiques, cafes, and art galleries.
Orlando’s streets are very well marked but it’s still recomendable to reserve a rental car with GPS in Spanish before traveling. That way we can drive more easily and make best use of our time to seem the many entertaining options of the city.
In the case that you are going to drive to Orlando by Turnpike, it’s important to make sure when you make the rental car reservation that the car comes equippes with a SunPass (RentingCarz offers this option), since the turnpike is a toll-road. The SunPass will allow you to drive without stopping at each toll-booth, and will enable you to avoid fines incurred without the service.
