Orlando is a beautiful place for remote workers looking for a coliving experience in the sun - especially when it comes to western amenities. The state’s beauty doesn’t only attract people, with one alligator for every fifteen people in Florida!
Since Shaquille O’neal departed long ago, Orlando is most famous for its large selection of theme parks. Between Disney World, SeaWorld, and Universal Studios there’s something for everyone. Keep in mind that there are seven different parks just between Disney and Universal. Florida is surrounded by water so you can easily leave town and get to the beach on the east coast in an hour, the west in two hours. If you’re into nature go visit the oldest tree in the city, estimated to be 400 years old at Big Tree Park.
Orlando gets pretty busy with tourists and motorists so getting around with their comprehensive bus network or by taxi is recommended. There are also complimentary buses for resorts and between theme parks. If you get a pass to 2 universal parks you can take the "Hogwarts Express" between them - a Harry Potter-themed ride!
Eating in the southern states is always a treat, and Orlando, Florida is no different. You can see where Guy Fieri likes to eat or you can go out and explore on your own. Orlando is a major family tourist destination so there is truly something for everyone. After all, southern barbeque alone is enough to keep coliving spaces beaming with joy and saucy fingers.
