Located 60 mi/95 km by road northwest of Belize City, Orange Walk Town is a center for Belize's sugarcane industry. Its cultural center, Banquitas House of Culture, offers interesting exhibits when it is open.
From a traveler's perspective, Orange Walk Town is mostly notable for what it's near: the Maya archaeological sites of Altun Ha, Cuello, Lamanai and Chan Chich, and the Crooked Tree Lagoon Wildlife Preserve (https://www.belizeaudubon.org/?page_id=3613). Some of the Belize's Mennonite communities are also nearby.
On the east side of town are a number of nice, reasonably priced hotels and restaurants.
