There’s always so much new to see and do! This year alone the theme parks have kicked-it up a notch with some amazing new attractions. I love to workout outside and Orlando’s weather, trails, paths and other work-out friendly locations make it easy to wake up early and get a nice workout in. Lake Eola in downtown Orlando is one of my favorite spots because the people-watching and scenery makes it so much more enjoyable.Of course, after a good workout, it’s time to refuel! Orlando offers so many different cuisines and many with amazing outdoor patios. I have many favorites but LUMA on Park in Winter Park wins the medal with their outside seating and amazing wine selection.Orlando is called The City Beautiful for a reason. I recently went to Blue Springs State Park and I loved being out in nature, strolling around the park and paddling in a canoe being accompanied by manatees. It’s was a breathtaking experience.

I was born and raised in Orlando, Florida and I couldn't have been luckier. Orlando is an adventure filled city! We have several theme parks (Disney, SeaWorld, and Universal) along with International Drive which has the Orlando Eye ( A ferris wheel that is 400 feet in the air) and plenty of other adventures as well! Aside from the attractions, the endless amount of food options that we have here is amazing and our beaches are some of the best in the country!
