Naples
If you fancy travelling a little further afield, during your stay in Orlando, we can thoroughly recommend a trip south to Naples. An overnight stay is recommended, as it really is too far to travel there and back in one day and enjoy Naples at the sa...

A Few Days In Miami
If you are lucky enough to be able to combine a trip to Orlando with a few days in Miami, then you will find lots to do and see. We often fly in via Miami, as flights can be considerably cheaper, and we love the area as it is so diverse. A cou...
