我的故乡系列博文(10):我的故乡奥兰多

我土生土长于佛罗里达的奥兰多。当然,奥兰多最出名的是它是迪斯尼和环球影城的大本营。我的第一个暑期工作是在魔术王国工作,操作一个名为“丛林巡航”的电动骑乘。在迪斯尼乐园,我有太多美好的时光。迪斯尼工作中我最喜欢的部分之一是看晚上的烟花。夏季非常炎热,所以在游泳池或水上乐园乘凉是完美的解决方案。环球影城的过山车是最棒的!他们刚刚开放了一个看起来极棒的被称为“哈利波特魔法世界”的单元,我兴奋地盼望下次回家时去光顾。主题公园的附近是Sandlake路,那里全是很棒的餐饮选择,从牛排馆到墨西哥餐厅。我最喜欢的餐馆之一是四季52,在那儿能看到美丽的湖景并户外用餐。

 

但奥兰多可不仅仅只有主题公园,还有很多其他吸引人的地方!我最喜欢的地区被称为冬季公园。绿树成荫的街道,沿街到处是很棒的精品店,咖啡馆和餐馆。我最喜欢的街道叫做公园大道,我经常去那里的红酒酒吧喝一杯或与朋友们在户外用餐。我也喜欢到海滩一日游。我经常去可可海滩,大约一个小时的路程,那里的海滩很漂亮,浪花滚滚。

 

总体来说,奥兰多是一个好地方。我特别喜欢冬季去,摆脱寒冷,沉浸在阳光、温暖的天气里!

I am a native of Orlando, Florida. Of course, Orlando is best known for being the home of Disneyworld and Universal Studios. My first summer job was working at the Magic Kingdom, operating a ride called The Jungle Cruise. I had so many great times at the Disney parks. One of my favorite parts of working at Disney was watching the nightly fireworks. The summertime is very hot, so cooling off at the swimming pool or waterparks was the perfect solution. The rollercoasters at Universal Studios are the best! They just opened a section known as “The Wizarding World of Harry Potter” that looks amazing, and am excited to visit on my next trip home. Close to the themeparks is Sandlake Road, which is full of great dining options from steakhouses to Mexican restaurants. One of my favorite restaurants is Seasons 52, which has beautiful lake views and al fresco dining.

 

But Orlando offers a lot more than just the themeparks! My favorite area of town is called Winter Park. Its tree-lined streets are filled with great boutiques, cafes, and restaurants. My favorite street is called Park Avenue, and I often went there to enjoy drinks at one of the wine bars or dine al fresco with friends. I also loved taking day trips to the beach. I often went to Cocoa Beach, about an hour away, which has a nice beach and great waves.

 

Overall, Orlando is a great place to visit. I especially love going in the winter, escaping the cold and soaking up sunny, warm weather!
