Orlando fun facts

Orange County Convention Center’s exhibition hall at the North/South Building is a total of 22 acres under roof. That’s roughly the same size as the iconic lake in downtown Orlando, Lake Eola.

Florida got its nickname, The Sunshine State, because the sun shines almost every day of the year.

The Coca-Cola Orlando Eye soars to 400 feet, making it the tallest observational wheel on the United States’ east coast.

Foodie and fun heaven. It would take you about 67 eight-hour days to visit all of Orlando’s more than 100 attractions, and almost five years to eat in Orlando’s nearly 5,000 restaurants if you eat at three each day.

Golf anyone? Orlando’s more than 170 public and semi-private golf courses combined equal more than 545 miles (877 kilometers) of golf fun.
