Places to go in the metro Orlando area besides the theme parks
A vegetarian/vegan restaurant with unique choices. The staff is friendly and the food is healthy.
This restaurant serves tapas and offers a variety of artists and performers every night. It's a fun atmosphere with great staff!
Langford Park is a park in the downtown Orlando area. It has a tiny tots playground, a "big kids" playground (not in the same area), picnic benches, gazebo, and lots of grassy spaces for kids to run around, play football, fly a kite. This isn't a super park, but if you are looking for a quiet park in the downtown area-it's Langford Park.
Lake Eola is a fun place to walk around and people watch. Twice a year they have art festivals at Lake Eola. Don't miss the swans. There are swan paddle boats that you can rent and paddle around the lake. It's romantic or can be fun for the family.
This is one of my favorite places in all of Central Florida. It's about an hour and a half away from Orlando. You can order pancake batter and toppings to go in your batter (like blueberries, chocolate chips) and then you cook your pancakes right on your table. After you're done at the restaurant swim in the Springs (a nice cool temp all year) or rent a canoe.
No many how many times I go to Sak's it is always hilarious! It's cheap entertainment that's perfect for anyone ages 10-100. The comedy is clean and the actors interact with the crowd and in the beginning of the show they toss out free candy. They also sell cheap eats like popcorn and soft drinks. Don't miss it!
This theater shows independent films and also serves food. It's about 1/2 hour away from the attractions. If you are looking to see an independent film in Orlando this is the place to go. Also once a month they show movies in the park. It's a fun experience-you bring your own dinner or snacks and they show a movie for free. Check their website for times and movie of the month.
