What initially attracted people was the landscape and various central Florida ecosystems providing plenty of everything
– citrus, seafood, crystal clear springs, freshwater ;sh, and a
sub-tropical, anything-grows climate to die for.
;e lush, jungle-like interior of northern Florida is dappled
with sandy-bottomed springs and geological mysteries and/or
happy accidents that attract visitors from around the world.
Orlando is surrounded by them. Several state parks less than
an hour away don bubbling springs overrun with massively
looming manatees. Kayaking, swimming with the manatees,
snorkeling, and cave-diving tours are options in many surrounding state parks. Crystal River and ;ree Sister Springs is
a touch farther, but well worth the trip!
Nearby parks not to miss are Wekiwa Springs State Park,
less than a half hour away and Blue Springs State Park about a
half hour north of Orlando.
Food, Wine, Craft Beer, Oh My!
Orlando is quickly becoming a foodie destination. From
James Beard award winners, James and Julie Petrakis (;e
Ravenous Pig and Cask & Larder), among others; the ViMi
district – a wonderland of Asian culinary delights; to Puerto
Rican mofongo around every corner; and the famously col-
ored, ubiquitously-distributed eggs of Lake Meadow Naturals
(from partridge eggs to Aracuna, it’s a veritable rainbow), this
is where people who know good food come to explore.
Wherever foodies ;ock, one can be sure to ;nd cra; beer
and wine shops galore. ;is is de;nitely true in the quaint village of Winter Park (home of Rollins College) just 15 minutes
from Orlando. ;e gorgeous Alfond Inn near Park Avenue
(highly recommended) is the whole package – art, food, wine,
and history – all wrapped into one luxuriously comfortable hotel. Plus, it’s a minute’s walk to some of the ;nest restaurants
(like James Beard winner, Cask & Larder) and wine and cra;
beer bars, like aptly named “Wine Room” and Winter Park
If wine and beer are not your thing, there’s always the “Cra;y
Cocktail Tour” in downtown Orlando for those looking for a
taste of Orlando’s nightlife. If you’ve got a serious sweet tooth,
Peterbrooke Chocolatier is a must with deep vats of dipping
chocolate waiting to greet you.
Arts and Culture
Once again, Winter Park shows in the running as a beacon
of high culture. Winter Park boasts Rollins’ Cornell Fine Art
Museum, the Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of American
Art, and the gorgeous Albin Polasek Museum & Sculpture
Gardens, all of which belong on the art enthusiast’s list. For the
classical music connoisseur, if you happen to be strolling the
