Travel How To: Getting from Atlanta to Orlando

Have you ever seen how massive Florida is? Despite Florida being a state away it takes about the identical period of time to get from Atlanta to New Orleans because it takes to get from Atlanta to Orlando. Seems bizarre, however perhaps that is simply me.

You will have to be able to pay some tolls if you wish to take the quickest street to Orlando. It’s about 6 hours and quarter-hour straight down I-75, however there are numerous optionally available toll roads and what I’d describe as sneaky toll roads. Essentially a street you’re on can all of a sudden change into a toll street and you will notice it coming, however you will not have sufficient time to alter your route till your already on the toll street.

Frontier and Spirit have some low cost flights down from Atlanta to Orlando, lower than $100 in case you can abdomen flying on a type of airways. You’ll have to lease a automobile nevertheless it was an possibility.

Places to Stay:

There’s a number of several types of resorts to remain in Orlando. There’s the resort resorts, the luxurious resorts, the funds resorts, and there are additionally choices corresponding to Airbnb.

The Luxury resorts run from $200 to $500 an evening however include nicer perks corresponding to Spas, eating places, and different on website actions which normally have vouchers for staying within the resort. If you are exploring town I’d go for a extra funds pleasant resorts since you’ll solely be spending within the resort is for sleeping.

There are additionally the theme park resorts. Their costs are diverse however normally are between $150 to $400 an evening for his or her extra affordable areas. Most parks may also supply perks for staying on sight corresponding to reductions for tickets or early park entry so do your analysis for whichever park you’re staying at.

Airbnb is cheaper than many of the resort choices, most Airbnbs are lower than $150. They do not include any perks although and are normally unfold farther away from downtown so preserve that in thoughts. The prices are clearly an element, however what can be essential to think about is how shut the resorts shall be to what you need to do. It’s simple sufficient to discover a funds resort however chances are you’ll be driving a bit by visitors relying on the place it’s.

There are particularly some commonplace resorts close to UCF campus which might be inside strolling distance of the campus. The resorts are between $100 to $200 and are your commonplace affair resorts (Double Tree, LaQuinta, and so on.).

Things to Do and See:

I’m positive there are many different issues to do in Orlando, however I solely actually know the resorts so that is what I’m gonna focus on. If somebody from the realm needs to offer concepts outdoors of these areas within the feedback it might be appreciated. While all of those theme parks are enjoyable, they’re additionally tremendous costly so different choices for issues to do is at all times appreciated.

Sea World

I’d say that is the low tier of the theme parks within the space. Sea World was an even bigger deal, however because of some latest controversy (I’m not discussing that right here) Sea World does not have the identical reputation it as soon as did. If you want animals that is nonetheless a enjoyable setting to see some animals up shut. It does have a number of thrilling rides however you may full just about every little thing at Sea World in a day.

Universal Studios

Universal Studios is the second most well-known theme park in Orlando. I’d argue that it’s the most thrilling theme park as most of their rides are typically extra thrill based mostly. Universal Studios is one in every of my favorites though it has seen many adjustments through the years with the shifting of IP rights and additions of massive sections for Harry Potter. If you are an grownup and you are not that into the Disney aesthetic I’d truly say Universal is the higher set of parks to go to if you wish to take pleasure in your self.
