If you're from California's Bay Area and want to visit a place where there are plenty of amusement parks and entertainment options, plan a trip to Orlando. It takes just under seven hours to fly from Oakland to Orlando after you take off from the Oakland International Airport (OAK).
The most visited theme parks in Orlando include Disney World, Sea World Orlando and Universal Studios Florida. These massive places have rides and live shows, and many hotels offer shuttles that can take you to the parks. Downtown Disney is where you can head for dinner and drinks after a full day of fun. You can stroll through the outdoor area with other visitors from all over the world, and you can also pop into one of the retail shops here. Other shopping options include the Lake Buena Vista Factory Stores and the Orlando Premium Outlets on International Drive. About a 10-minute drive north of downtown Orlando are the Orlando Science Center and the Orlando Museum of Art.
You'll arrive at the Orlando International Airport (MCO), where you can pick up a rental car, take a taxi or hop on a hotel shuttle. Highs range from the 90s in the summer to the 70s in the winter. Anyone coming in for New Years will likely be greeted with nice weather, and summer travelers should be prepared for possible rainstorms.
