Orlando is the one place where you’ll never run out of places to eat and sleep. Coming from someone who has lived in this beautiful city her whole life, I still – to this day – have not seen everything there is to see in this city of entertainment. From the thriving downtown Orlando nightlife to the magical experience of Walt Disney World, Orlando keeps getting better everyday.

So let’s say you’re planning a trip to Orlando and don’t even know where to begin with lodging and activities. Allow our team of experts at Drive The Nation to be your personal concierge and guide to this fun town.

Sleep – This is easily one of the most difficult decisions to make when you come to Orlando. There are so many hotels and resorts that you just can’t decide where to go. However, it’s not that bad when you know what you’re looking for. You want to find a hotel that is in a great location and has a great reputation for excellent customer service, cleanliness and amenities.

The Hilton Orlando is a newer hotel in Orlando right near Orlando’s famous International Drive. You’re only minutes away from Universal, Sea World, and Disney World. The JW Marriott at Grande Lakes is a nationally recognized resort for it’s endless amenities and for the fact that it’s a destination in itself – you’d never have to leave the resort if you really didn’t want to. Everything is there for you. The Rosen Shingle Creek is one of Orlando’s largest resorts in the heart of Orlando. Guests are within walking distance of International Drive and a short drive from the theme parks.

Eat – Orlando is a mecca for tourists, visitors and locals. Whether you call Orlando “home” or just pass by every so often, the best part about coming is that you can always expect something new. Nestled right in the heart of the theme parks, Orlando’s very famous “Restaurant Row” is a strip of restaurants where visitors flock to taste the very best of Mickey Town.  Orlando’s Restaurant Row is located on Sand Lake Road and is a great place to meet family and friends for meals.
