Orlando, located in Orange County, Florida, is a vibrant city and the county seat. It serves as the hub of the Orlando metropolitan area, situated in Central Florida. According to the U.S. Census Bureau in 2017, the Orlando metropolitan area had a population of 2,509,831, making it the sixth-largest metropolitan area in the Southern United States and the third-largest in Florida, following Miami and Tampa Bay. The city itself had a population of 307,573 in the 2020 census, ranking as the fourth-largest city in Florida, trailing Jacksonville, Miami, and Tampa. As the state’s largest inland city, Orlando holds significant importance.
Orlando is renowned as one of the most-visited cities globally, attracting a multitude of tourists, major events, and conventions. In 2018 alone, the city welcomed over 75 million visitors. The Orlando International Airport stands as the 13th-busiest airport in the United States and the 29th-busiest globally. The area’s popularity is largely due to its prominent attractions, including the world-famous Walt Disney World Resort, established by the Walt Disney Company in 1971. Situated approximately 21 miles (34 km) southwest of downtown Orlando in Bay Lake, the resort remains a major draw for visitors. Another notable attraction within the city limits is the Universal Orlando Resort, which originated as an expansion of Universal Studios Florida in 1990, and it stands as the only theme park located within Orlando itself.
Downtown Orlando serves as the focal point for cultural sites such as the Orlando Museum of Art and the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, as well as a vibrant nightlife with numerous bars, clubs, and entertainment venues. International Drive, home to attractions like the Wheel at ICON Park, offers additional tourist destinations. Furthermore, Orlando stands out as a prominent city for conferences and conventions, with the Orange County Convention Center ranking as the second-largest convention facility in the United States.
In terms of climate, Orlando falls under the humid subtropical category, similar to many regions in the Southern United States. It experiences two distinct seasons: a hot and rainy season from May to late October, coinciding with the Atlantic hurricane season, and a warm and dry season from November to April. The city’s warm and humid climate is influenced by its low elevation, proximity to the Tropic of Cancer, and its location at the center of a peninsula. The Gulf Stream’s presence also shapes Orlando’s climate, affecting its temperature and precipitation patterns.
During the peak of Orlando’s humid summer season, high temperatures typically range from the low 90s °F (32–34 °C), with low temperatures rarely dropping below the low 70s °F (22–24 °C). The period from April 9 to October 14 marks the average duration of 90 °F (32 °C) temperatures. While the humidity helps prevent temperatures from surpassing 100 °F (38 °C), it contributes to a heat index that can exceed 110 °F (43 °C). The highest recorded temperature in the city occurred on September 8, 1921, reaching 103 °F (39 °C). Thunderstorms are frequent during this season, resulting from the convergence of air masses from the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean, often accompanied by lightning, heavy rain, powerful winds, and occasional hail.
Winter in Orlando brings lower humidity levels and more moderate temperatures, which can vary more significantly. January’s average daily temperature stands at 60.6 °F (15.9 °C). Freezing temperatures occur on average only 1.6 nights per year, with the lowest recorded temperature being 18 °F (−8 °C) on December 28, 1894. Orlando falls within hardiness zone 10a, with an annual mean minimum temperature slightly above 30 °F (−1 °C). Due to the dry winter season, snow is exceedingly rare, with the only recorded accumulation within the city limits dating back to 1948. Flurries have been observed on a few occasions, including 1989, 2006, and 2010.
Orlando boasts a robust industrial and hi-tech sector, contributing significantly to its economy. With a $13.4 billion technology industry employing 53,000 individuals, the city has gained recognition as a digital media, agricultural technology, aviation, aerospace, and software design innovation cluster. Additionally, over 150 international companies from around 20 countries have established facilities within the Metro Orlando area.
Central Florida Research Park, the country’s seventh-largest research park, spans over 1,025 acres (4.15 km2) and hosts more than 120 companies, employing over 8,500 people. It serves as the epicenter for the nation’s military simulation and training programs. Annually, the Orange County Convention Center hosts the Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation and Education Conference (I/ITSEC), the largest modeling and simulation conference worldwide. The simulation procurement commands for the U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, and Coast Guard are located in Metro Orlando.
Prominent companies like Lockheed Martin, KDF, General Dynamics, Harris, Mitsubishi Power Systems, Siemens, Veritas/Symantec, and many others maintain offices or labs in the Metro Orlando area. Notably, Orlando was previously home to the Naval Training Center, where nuclear engineers were trained for the U.S. Navy. The land has since been transformed into the Baldwin Park development. Along the Interstate 4 corridor, particularly in Maitland, Lake Mary, and Heathrow, numerous office complexes have emerged, accommodating large corporations.
The city’s proximity to Patrick Space Force Base, Cape Canaveral Space Force Station, and Kennedy Space Center allows residents to commute to work from Orlando’s suburbs. Port Canaveral, a prominent cruise ship terminal, is also easily accessible from Orlando.
Orlando’s primary airport is the Orlando International Airport (MCO), the busiest airport in Florida. Serving as a hub and focus city for Frontier Airlines, JetBlue Airways, and Southwest Airlines, it acts as a major international gateway for the mid-Florida region. Several major foreign carriers operate at the airport, including Aerolíneas Argentinas, Aer Lingus, Aeroméxico, Air Canada, British Airways, Lufthansa, Emirates Airlines, Norwegian Air Shuttle, Latam, and Virgin Atlantic.
The Orlando Sanford International Airport (SFB) in the nearby suburb of Sanford serves as a secondary airport for the region and a focus city for Allegiant Air. Additionally, the Orlando Executive Airport (ORL) near Downtown Orlando caters primarily to executive jets, flight training schools, and general small-aircraft aviation.
Darden Restaurants, the parent company of Olive Garden and LongHorn Steakhouse, and the world’s largest operator of casual dining restaurants by revenue, is headquartered in Orlando. In 2009, Darden Restaurants relocated to a new headquarters and central distribution facility.
Tourism plays a pivotal role in Orlando’s economy, making it one of the world’s top tourist destinations. Dubbed the ‘Theme Park Capital of the World,’ the region boasts renowned attractions such as Walt Disney World, Universal Orlando, SeaWorld Orlando, Legoland, and Fun Spot America Theme Parks. In 2018, a record-breaking 75 million visitors flocked to the Orlando region, cementing its status as the leading tourist destination in the United States. The area is home to seven of the ten most visited theme parks in North America.
