Keep to the East Coast with this increasingly popular twin centre that will keep your adrenaline sky high for the duration of your holiday.
New York and Orlando are two of the UK's favourite cities, so what could be better than combining the two in a single holiday. Start off in Orlando, where kids old and young will be thrilled at the theme parks and wowed by the world's best attractions. Once you've soaked up all the magic, head to New York for a different kind of fast pace. In under three hours, you'll land in the Big Apple and will certainly want to hit the ground running. With museums, restaurants, shopping and theatre you'll never be short of things to do in the city that never sleeps.
No trip to Orlando would be complete without heading to the biggest and best theme parks in the world – Walt Disney World Resort, Universal Orlando Resort and SeaWorld Parks and Entertainment. From the rides to the entertainment and even the nightlife, you'll never find the time to do it all, so planning ahead is definitely advised!
Shopping in Orlando can be an all day activity – the expansive shopping malls come fully equipped with outdoor areas, salons, bars and restaurants. What's more, this is the home of outlet shopping – if you want to pick up some big brand names at discounted prices this is the place to be.
Orlando's International Drive is an 11 mile road which has been famed for being an entertainment hub for many, many years. The latest development to the area is the ultra modern I-Drive 360, home to the Orlando Eye, a 400ft giant Ferris wheel which offers splendid views over the whole city. The area also has attractions including Sea Life, Madame Tussauds and a selections of restaurants and bars.
Orlando is one of the largest golfing destinations in the world, with more than 170 courses to choose from. Many of the most popular villa communities and hotel resorts have award winning golf courses on-site so getting some tee time in should be a breeze. If golf isn't your thing, there are plenty of opportunities to get outside and enjoy a bit of nature, between the airboat rides and nature reserves you're never far away from some open green space.
No trip to New York is complete without taking in a view of the city that never sleeps. Take a wonder across the Brooklyn bridge which is an architectural delight, and marvel at the views of Manhattan. To see the city from up above there are a few options, with the Empire State building and the Rockefella Center being firm favourites.
New York is bursting at the seams with art and culture. There are museums at every corner, one of the most famous is MoMa - Museum Of Modern Art - and is definitely worth a visit. If music is your thing, you'll find live jazz and hip hop in funky underground bars, and then of course there are the bright lights of Broadway to keep you entertained.
With department stores like Macys and Saks, boutiques and outlets it's hard not to shop in New York. Here fashion reigns supreme, so start off with an empty suitcase and fill it up as you go along. In New York, you can also find unique jewelry, accessories and homewares. It's also great for vintage lovers, with thrift shops and markets waiting to be searched.
Despite being one of the biggest cities in the world, New York has plenty of opportunities to be at one with nature. Central Park is probably most famous, but there's also Brooklyn Botanic Garden, Head a little way out of Manhatten and you'll even find beaches, with Orchard Beach near the Bronx and Brighton Beach near Coney Island.
