Things to Do in Orlando

It’s not all about the mouse!

There are so many other things to do and see in sunny Orlando after a long day in the classroom. Or, stay a few days and make a vacation out of it!

Pointe Orlando

Within walking distance of the hotel, you’ll find Pointe Orlando, a place where you can elevate your dining experience at restaurants offering everything from casual fare to haute cuisine. Where you can discover a diverse collection of specialty shops. And where, when the sun sets, you can find a place pulsing with energy, music & live entertainment.

Take a Step Inside Hogwarts Castle
Just 3.3 miles from the hotel, you’ll find Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure, home to all things Harry Potter. Learn more about ticket pricing.

Winter Park

Stroll the brick streets of Park Avenue for an ice cream cone at Kilwins or shopping for unique toys at Lighten Up! Step back into old Florida at Kraft Azalea Gardens with 13 acres of Spanish moss-lined oaks and cypress trees along the shore of Lake Maitland. It’s a prime spot for a picnic. Take the Winter Park Scenic Boat Tour and experience lakefront beauty, local history and the sheer pleasure of a boat ride. Boat captain tales are always lively and informative. Pop into The Coop, a quaint casual restaurant featuring Southern cuisine, for their famous fried chicken or savory fried green tomatoes. Be sure to say “yes” to dessert. Old-school banana pudding and the moon pies are hometown favorites.

The Beaches

Only 45 minutes away, you can visit the Cape Canaveral National Seashore, a 25-mile stretch between Titusville and New Smyrna Beach, known for its pristine beaches and dunes dotted with sea oats for a serene getaway. If you need a little more hustle and bustle, then visit Cocoa Beach, only an hour from the hotel, which earned its fame from the 1960s “I Dream of Jeannie” series. It’s also home to the perennially popular Ron Jon’s Surf Shop.

Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex

Who doesn’t have a fascination with outer space or rockets? Make sure to visit the Rocket Garden with enormous rockets as well as replicas of space capsules from the Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo eras of the space program.  This fantastic facility is located only an hour from the conference hotel.

Florida’s Famous Natural Springs

Long before the popularity of Orlando’s world-class attractions, visitors came for the natural springs. In fact, Florida has the largest concentration of springs in the world with over 700 beautiful springs spanning across the state. Many are only a short road trip away. Take a dip in the crystalline waters that average a 72-degree temperature almost year-round. Rent inner tubes and slowly stream down Ichetucknee Springs near Gainesville or head to Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge to snorkel or swim with the gentle giant manatees in King’s Bay.
