The Beautiful day in downtown Orlando! I love going to the farmers market on Sundays at Lake Eola. If they haven't already, Orlando's city council should vote the swan as the official bird of Orlando. There are swans larger than pit bulls everywhere you step around Lake Eola. Mind your step… maybe they should rename it The Incredible Hulk steel roller coaster was voted the #1 roller coaster by Discovery Channel viewers in 1999, the roller coaster uses a launch lift hill as opposed to conventional chain lifts. This means you get an acceleration to 40 mph in approximately two seconds before speeding through several inversions!
When the Hulk opened, it featured the world's tallest cobra roll at 110 feet ! Be sure and go right after a big heavy lunch.

A family affair.
#Green Lake Eola in downtown Orlando Florida has a nice walking path around it which is about 1 mile long. The temperature here is just about perfect for most people this time of year. Kraken...
The lengthy floorless coaster includes a 119-feet-tall vertical loop, a diving loop, a cobra roll, a zero gravity roll and some G-force-inducing turns, which more than make up for its dull setting. Don’t forget to check out the eels that live in tanks underneath the ride, which represent the Kraken’s offspring. #KidsFun Day 31 - Park life in Downtown Orlando.

You won't leave this sweet shop without a chocolate frog or pumpkin juice. Located only in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
#SweetSpot Islands of Adventure is a great theme park, made even better by the addition of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Just the ride in Hogwarts Castle is worth several rides alone! Then there's the butterbeer, the owlery mail room, and so much more! Oh, and the rest of Islands is pretty great too! There are some pretty cool faux vintage signs throughout the park. It a pretty photogenic place ! Take a day to stroll through the gardens. Plenty of wildlife and beautiful scenery. Lake Eola Park, Orlando
#desktop #Orlando is more than mouse ears. #orlandosecrets #therealorlando #thecitybeautiful Downtown Orlando's Lake Eola Park is the city's most iconic spot – a favorite of photographers of all levels. #orlando #lakeeola #bestof5 Nice contrast between large buildings and palm trees in nature here in Orlando This was such a good park to walk around, lots of birds to see like Ibis, swans, ducks, herons and this little guy, a spotted woodpecker.
You can also buy food for the birds at 25 cents (it's good fun to see the Ibis birds and Squirrels chase each other over the food) or hire out a paddle boat. We saw this bird on her nest at Lake Eola park. We were told by locals that she lost her eggs to other animals but has been sitting on her nest still for days. Epcot center theme park earth night view, Disney World Florida Winter in Orlando! Ivanhoe lake.... Downtown Disney Village! Try Raglan Road Irish Pub for dinner.. it's amazing! Sea World.. has the most colorful flamingos! Orlando's city oasis and a local favorite, Leu Gardens is full of floral wonders. The first Monday of the month is free! This is a great creative center for the entire family. Plenty to do and explore. A pretty park at Orlando! 🇱🇷 Camellia blooms are all over Leu Gardens during the mild Florida winters. If you're in Orlando, don't miss out! Had to climb this fire escape to grab a Geocache. Nice view but I was terrified of dropping my iPhone. Hanging with the #alligators and #turtles  One of Orlando's beautiful parks. A quiet lake hidden in a beautiful neighborhood, with a path to walk around and grassy spots to sit and watch the swans with little to no other people around. At the site of the memorial to the 49 victims whose lives were taken by a gunman at Pulse nightclub in Orlando. The memorial sprung up on the green in front of the Dr. Phillips Performing Arts Center in downtown, site of the first large vigil that took place Monday night, and where President Obama and Vice President Biden laid flowers, paid their respects and gave a speech to the nation in response to the tragedy. #orlandostrong #bestof5 Sunset over Lake Concord #orlando Downtown Central Florida Lake Eola, Orlando, Florida Downtown central Florida Downtown Disney horse drawn trolley. Back To The Future car. Spanish Moss blowing in Central Florida. #roadtrip This huge center is filled with different reptiles and innovative games to keep the kids entertained. My bike ride home was slightly delayed by this the other week. #orlando #lakeivanhoe #LoveMyTown One of my favorite spots in downtown Orlando -
Lake Eola. Take in the magnificent sculptures along the shore and beautiful views of the city. I've never witnessed such outpouring of love and embrace of the LGBT community here in Orlando before this week's tragedy. While capturing photos of downtown in the wake of the tragic shooting at Pulse nightclub, my partner and I were stopped numerous times by people who wanted to give us hugs, talk to us, pray for us or to just make sure we were OK. Words can't express the heartfelt gratitude. #orlandostrong #bestof5 One of my fave parks #TroveOnTuesday The Simpsons part of Universal. Pretty .85mi walk around the lake. Watch out for the swans, they're pretty but mean. Lake Eola Park is a beautiful section of downtown Orlando. The bandshell arena has some great events, or just the walk around the lake is perfect for an evening stroll. Escape the concrete jungle for a piece of nature in central Florida. Along the.boardwalk in Daytona, on Daytona Beach... first the.Atlantic ! Morning walk at Lake Eola, highlighting the fountain and The Disney amphitheater that has been painted in rainbow colors honoring the victims of the pulse shootings. Take a Sunday stroll around the lovely Lake Eola. Keep an eye out for the not-always-so-friendly residents ;)
Every Sunday they host the local Farmer's Market. Grab a fresh coconut and a straw and sip your way through all the venues.

This is just up the street from where I live – always wanted to do this building justice with a long-exposure nighttime shot after a rain when the streets are wet and shiny – finally got my chance last Saturday. #CollegePark #TopDrawer Miring walk at sunrise at Lake Eola in Orlando FL. The lake is a mile long walk all the way round. It's a popular place for families., date nights or exercise. Each night different music is offered. You can rent the swan boats. Awesome Vietnamese food and interesting decor Really great and campy little coffee house. Credo donates part or all of their profits back to the community.. Could stop there but great well made coffee and the latte I had was very good. Pastries and muffin are a little different (think blueberry pancake bar) and really good. Comfortable and eclectic seating. Glad I finally found a place I want to come back to in Orlando. A packed house at the Orlando City Soccer game Delicious cold brew at Lineage Coffee in downtown Orlando. Delicious local roaster .with cool vibes Downtown Orlando.
