    Cool National Geographic article - Mar'07

    I couldn't find that anyone had mentioned this yet ... In the currently issue of National Geographic (March 2007), there is a feature article about Orlando and it's world of growth outside of Disney.

    I just came back from a brief visit there, and was absolutely amazed (devastated?) at the tremendous growth and development of large areas - especially areas along I-4 very close to my resort.


    Please read the article:
