Info About Orlando

Travelers cross continents—and oceans—to  soak in Orlando’s semi-tropical weather and visit theme parks like Universal Studios and Walt Disney World. But the Theme Park Capital of the World is so much more than overstuffed cartoon characters thanks to a non-stop supply of rousing sports, mind-blowing concerts, and intoxicating theater. Orlandoans buy tickets to see Beyoncé and Jay-Z tear up the stage and to watch the Orlando Magic play hoops against their favorite NBA rivals, the Miami Heat. Whatever experience you’re searching for, Orlando has the tickets for you.

Sports

The City Beautiful is home to top athletes like PGA stars Tiger Woods and Arnold Palmer, not to mention basketball giant Shaquille O’Neal, while its central Church Street District boasts exciting sports teams and world-class venues that attract big-name events. Orlando City Stadium hosts Orlando City SC and Orlando Pride, the city’s men’s and women’s professional soccer teams, as well as international soccer games, including a 2018 FIFA World Cup qualification game. Just down Church Street, the Orlando Solar Bears minor league hockey team and the Orlando Magic, Shaq’s first team, split ice and court time at Amway Center.

Although Orlando doesn’t have an NFL team, its football scene is still thrilling. Camping World Stadium hosts 3 annual college football bowls, including the Cure Bowl, which promotes breast cancer awareness and research for a cure, the Citrus Bowl, and the Russell Athletic Bowl.  Spectators thrill at women’s professional football games between the Orlando Anarchy and opponents like the Tampa Bay Inferno, while the University of Central Florida UCF Knights throw spirals against American Athletic Conference foes the East Carolina Pirates at Spectrum Stadium. If you’re craving some bases and runs, head to Osceola County Stadium to see the Florida Fire Frogs, Orlando’s minor league baseball team.

Concerts & Comedy

The birthplace of 90s boyband favorites like *NSYNC and Backstreet Boys, Orlando enjoys a thriving music scene that includes Cuban and electronic dance elements. When its unparalleled venues like Camping World Stadium and Amway Center aren’t playing home to sporting events, they host some the world’s best performers, including Shakira and Paul Simon. Don’t wait to get your tickets to see Janet Jackson at MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre at the Florida State Fairgrounds and Shakira at Amway Center. Once you’ve jammed out sufficiently, visit a couple of Orlando’s best comedy clubs, Hard Rock Live and Plaza Theatre, and enjoy shows that might include Tom Segura’s warm but barbed anecdotes and Chris Redd’s sketch and improv shows. Round out your evening with a visit to Orlando’s stellar Hard Rock Café.

A Theatrical Namesake

The city of Orlando might not actually be named for Shakespeare’s passionate and beloved As You Like It character, but the city still has a lively culture of performance, offering Broadway musicals, stage plays, and even acrobatic Cirque du Soleil shows. Get your tickets to see Hamilton or Dear Evan Hansen performed in the gleaming, cherry-wood Walt Disney Theater in the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, a 2-block space with state-of-the-art theaters. You can also see shows like Star Wars: Return of the Jedi in Concert with the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra, along with your fellow Orlandocalrissions. With so many magical things to do in Orlando, be sure you give yourself enough time for every exhilarating experience.
