The Beauty of Universal Orlando Resort

Most of you know that I live in Orlando, Florida. I also have the good fortune to live just 4 miles from Universal Studios Resort.

Besides the 3 theme parks (Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure, and Volcano Bay water park), the resort has about 7 or 8 hotels, all connected by a pathway. On Saturday mornings, I like to walk that pathway even if I never visit the parks.

The pathways are beautiful, and give be about 3 to 4 miles worth of walking – which I did today. I took some pictures for you, which include:

  1. The beautiful butterfly garden, though there were no butterflies out today.
  2. The awesome 40s-Hollywood-themed Hard Rock Hotel.
  3. Bamboo trees which help line a portion of the path.
  4. The lovely Italian-themed Portifino Resort.
  5. A water taxi, which transports hotel guests to theme parks.

I hope you enjoy them!
