Immerse yourself in the magic of the theme parks
They may be well-known, but no trip to Orlando is complete without the theme parks. Whether you want to soak in the magic at Walt Disney World Resort, have an adventure at Universal Orlando, or embrace marine life at SeaWorld, there’s something for everyone.
Ride a swan
Did you know Orlando has its own version of Central Park? Lake Eola serves as a gathering place for all kinds of community events, as well as the perfect place to view the Downtown Orlando skyline. It also serves as a home for the unofficial symbol of the city—the swan. You can even glide across the lake like a swan via the iconic swan paddleboats. It’s a great way to experience the real Orlando.
Satisfy your cravings
If you’re a foodie, you might not realize just how much Orlando has to offer. Stroll along Park Avenue in Winter Park or Edgewater Drive in College Park and enjoy your pick of cute local eats. Check the local happenings for a food festival, or catch up with one of our favorite food trucks. You can even take a food tour. Love dessert? Gideon’s Bakehouse is world-renowned for their half-pound, eye-popping cookie creations. Dig in!

From fine art to Broadway, Orlando has plenty to enjoy. Check out an exhibit at the Orlando Museum of Art or the Mennello Museum of American Art.
