Place- What it is like in Orlando?

Orlando, Florida is a hot, tropical and exciting place. There are great restaurants, people are very nice, and it is one of my favorite places to go. Orlando is home to Disney World and Universal Studios. They are two of the most well visited places in the United States.

Orlando is mostly flat. Consisting of wetlands, with many lakes and swamps.

Location- Where it is?

Orlando is in the central part of the state of Florida. Central boundaries are not official or consistent. In 2007 Florida residents identified central Florida as comprising a large swatch of peninsular Florida. Including Orlando metropolitan area, costal stretches from the Big Bend south to the Tampa Bay Area in the West, and from Daytona Beach south to Martin County in the east.

The absolute location of Orlando, Florida is 28 degrees N and 81 degrees W. The relative location of Orlando, Florida is 117 miles west of Port Richey, Florida.


Region- How is it similar to areas around it?

Orlando is known as "Hollywood East" because of the numerous film studios, TV shows, electronic gaming and commercials produced there. Along with hip hop, rock and latino music scene.

The weather in Orlando is similar to most of Florida but due to it's inland location, it is less exposed to hurricanes than coastal regions.

Human and Environment Interaction - How do people change or use their environment?

The state of Florida has an array of land and marine life. This environment has drawn millions of people to settle in the state over the last hundred years. Florida's population increases by about 1000 residents each day. Land development and water use have transformed the state, primarily through drainage and the infill of the wetlands. Much of Florida consists of karst limestone with water-filled caves and sinkholes. As development has increased demand for groundwater has also risen, resulting in damage and drying out of the cave systems causing them to collapse and threatening the ecosystems.
