Orlando is No. 1 Summer Destination

Orlando is the No. 1 most popular summer travel spot for 2011, according to bookings on travel site Orbitz.com.

The City Beautiful was the only Florida city to make the top 10 list this year. Among the reasons cited for Orlando’s high ranking:

• Average airfare to Orlando this summer is $290, an increase of 10 percent over last year but still the lowest average fare for any of the cities in the top 10.

• Orlando hotel rooms are averaging about $94/night, an increase of 12 percent over last year but the second lowest of the cities in the top 10.

Cities that ranked No. 2-10 include: Las Vegas, Seattle, Los Angeles, Denver, New York, San Francisco, Chicago, Cancun and Boston.

For property buyers, that translates to increased interest in Orlando condos and Orlando condo hotels like Lake Buena Vista Resort and Spa. Prices are still at 2004 prices in many cases and cashflow positive.

  1. I’m heading to Orlando to visit Disney World with my son. Coming from Maui, it will be a long trip but hopefully very worthwhile. With so much to do, I can see how Orlando would be the #1 destination.
