Finding Orlando Vacation Routes.

If you need help finding a route in the Orlando area here is an example of one of the services we provide. One of our readers e.mailed us with this Question…

Dear Sir / Madam

I have a vacation at Chatham Circle, Kissimmee, Florida, please can you provide direction details from Orlando International Airport?
Many Thanks
Mr *** ***


Thanks for using my sites.
I have a page for you -

Note the reference to the 'tricky' left turn onto R-535.
If you are a First Time USA Driver, I would recommend continuing on to Celebration Avenue and avoiding all left turns except for the last onto Siesta Lago Drive.

Hope this helps.
