Orlando is a major city in the central region of the U.S. state of Florida. It is the county seat of Orange County and the center of the Greater Orlando metropolitan region. Originally the center of a major citrus-growing region, Orlando is now an urban city with various industries. The area is a major tourist destination, as the home of the Walt Disney World Resort, the Universal Orlando Resort, and Sea World. These attractions helped make Orlando the third most visited American city among travelers in the year 2007. Since the establishment of destination tourism in the 1970’s, the local economy has diversified, and today the region is the center of operations for companies servicing Central Florida.
