With more amusement parks than any other area in North America, Orlando, Florida, truly is a destination unlike any other. And travelling to “The City Beautiful” is now more affordable than ever, thanks to the abundance of cheap flights to Orlando. So whether you’re looking to visit the Wet ’n’ Wild waterpark, Universal Studios Florida®, or the legendary House of Mouse, when you lock-down some tickets to Orlando, you'll find out exactly what it is that makes this destination so desirable.
Although travellers flock to this alluring destination all year long, the summer months from June through September are typically when you can expect to find endless throngs of tourists lining up for the latest rides. Temperatures during this season generally tend to hover around 30 degrees Celsius, which is a bit warm by some folks’ standards, but altogether not too uncomfortable in comparison to other parts of the U.S.'s southeast. This is also when hotel rates tend to be highest, and flights here are a bit more costly.
Although spring and autumn are generally agreeable times of year to spend in the Sunshine State, these are considered the region's shoulder seasons when tourism tends to wane. Thermometers during these times of year neither reach the summer months' highs nor sink to the winter months' lows, but rather stay more moderate. Rainfall is more frequent in the shoulder seasons, especially in the early fall when hurricanes are common.
Late fall and early winter mark Orlando’s off season, when temperatures slide slightly, and prices on flights to Orlando can drop substantially. This tends to be truer in October and November, as December's yuletide season is a popular time for visitors to descend upon the House of Mouse.
Distance: 21 km northwest of Orlando’s centre
