Our local experts take every effort to accurately capture this information through photography, videos, virtual tours and writings. It can be truly said that our content is fresh, local and 'hand-made'.
Our Local Experts in Orlando
The Orlando franchise is owned by brothers, Matt and Travis Hope. Matt and Travis both graduated from the University of Central Florida in Orlando with degrees in Marketing and Accounting respectively. After university they both decided to do some extensive traveling while calling Orlando home whenever they were back in the states. They both spent a month and a half in Central America backpacking and Matt was fortunate enough to return again to Central America for two and a half more months and also spend close to four months traveling and living in Western Europe.
Their thirst and appreciation for travel began to mold the decisions they made for their future and when the chance to own the Orlando franchise arose they quickly pounced on it. The combination of working within the travel industry and working within their areas of expertise from university was the opportunity of a lifetime, and they were determined to make sure it did not pass them by.
With a combined eleven years of living in Orlando they've both had the time to explore the countless pubs and night clubs, the numerous restaurants and theme parks, and everything else that Orlando, the tourism capital of the Southeast United States, has to offer. Now they are in a position to share their knowledge of Orlando with the masses, and they are looking forward to the adventure ahead as they attempt to make MyDestination.com/Orlando the most comprehensive guide to all things Orlando.
