When it comes to the Sunshine State, the Central Florida/Orlando area is probably responsible for most of the visitor’s hospitality:
- More than 40 million travelers pass through Orlando International Airport annually.
- The greater Orlando area receives about 68 million visitors each year.
- The International Drive business district in downtown Orlando alone brings nearly five million daytime visitors annually to its 275 restaurants, 600 shops, six theme parks and 120 hotels.
The time of year you visit
January, February, September and October are the best months for the weather in central Florida; not blistering hot or oppressively humid (though September and October fall within hurricane season). The holiday season around Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year's Day and spring break provide for crowded venues and packed roadways. Winter temperatures in Central Florida range from the low 50s to the mid 70s, while summer temperatures stay in the mid 80s to the high 90s. No matter what time of year you visit, you want vacation rental accommodations to suit the weather, with reliable heat and air conditioning and access to a well-maintained pool.
Why are you visiting?
If you're coming with family and young children, you'll probably want to go to at least one of the theme parks. If you're a golfer, the central Florida area boasts dozens of championship courses, many open to the public or accommodating guests of members. Enjoy boating, fishing or diving? A short ride to the east coast provides a full or half-day of charter fishing and diving out of Port Canaveral and Cocoa Beach. Coming for the culture? Central Florida has plenty to choose from, and much of it is outdoors: year-round music festivals, art shows, food and wine festivals, parades, ethnic and professional sporting events. Whatever you come to see and do, you'll need a vacation rental that's private, relaxing and ready to help you rest and get ready to do it all again tomorrow.
Transportation: how you get from Point A to Point B
Getting around central Florida is challenging when you're a visitor and new to the roads. Driving during weekday rush hour and on weekends near the theme parks always requires patience and extra time; a GPS app or this grid map is helpful for getting around town. While there is the option of public transit, taxis and ride sharing services, nothing makes you feel more sure of your vacation surroundings than a vacation concierge who arranges safe, reliable and private transportation from your rental accommodation to your destination. No matter where you're going, you know you'll get there on time, without the stress of getting lost or stuck in gridlock.
The company you'll keep
Whether your trip involves a family vacation, a girls weekend away, a guys golf excursion, or a destination wedding or anniversary celebration, your vacation rental is the center of the gathering. The right vacation rental offers enough bedrooms, bathrooms, floor space and entertainment area for a group, while ensuring privacy and quiet between neighboring rentals. And with so many diverse needs and wants within your party, the vacation rental you choose must be more than just a roof and four walls. The range of rental accommodations, luxury amenities, and personalized service is designed to please and pamper everyone in your party.
The price you'll pay
While a Florida vacation rental seems pricey on the surface, it is far less expensive compared to a block of hotel rooms, plus meals and services. A vacation rental offers the opportunity to eat when you want, sleep in or stay up all night, take care of laundry, host a backyard barbecue or impromptu wedding ceremony, bring your own groceries or reserve a private chef for dinner. The Florida vacation rental is not just part of your trip; it is a stand-alone event and experience.
