While we LOVE all of the fun tourist activities to do here in Orlando, sometimes it’s great to go “off the beaten path” to escape the crowds and do something the locals do. Downtown Orlando is just a quick 20-30 minute drive from any of our resorts. Lake Eola Park is located in the heart of Downtown Orlando. The sidewalk that circles the lake is just about a mile in length, making it easy for visitors to keep track of their walking or running distances. Other activities available to park visitors include renting swan-shaped paddle boats, feeding the live swans and other birds inhabiting the park, seeing a concert or a play in the Walt Disney Amphitheater, grabbing a bite to eat at Relax Grill on Lake Eola. The Eola Sunday Market has gained a reputation of being one of the best in Central Florida. The market features fruits and vegetables, home-made breads, an assortment of local cuisines, beer, wine and a variety of artwork and entertainment. If you happen to be in Orlando on May 28th, 2016, you may be able to see a free performance of “Cinderella,” presented by the Russian Academy of Ballet. This classic fairy tale will have incredible sets and costumes and will be held at the Walt Disney Amphitheater!
