“The City Beautiful” is an under-the-radar metro with can’t miss attractions at every corner. This fall, skip the mouse ears and butter beers with a visit to Lake Eola Park at the heart of Downtown Orlando. Rent a swan boat and paddle across the lake with jaw dropping views of the city’s skyscrapers or enjoy a nighttime stroll with a light show from its iconic fountain and rotating markets available for locals and travelers alike. The best part of Lake Eola park is their schedule of events from open-air concerts to festivals and more.
Grab tickets for the Immerse Festival in October which takes guests on a journey through 10 city blocks of unexpected creative encounters, epic performances and interactive art. The three day festival culminates with the launch of ‘Color Day’ featuring colored powder fights, paint explosions and eruptions of foam. Opt for a stay at AC Hotel Orlando Downtown, the new lifestyle hotel at the center of it all, where travelers can wind down from a getaway of fall fun with signature cocktails at the stunning rooftop SkyBar (order ‘The Cloud!’) paired with 360 views of the city, outdoor fire pits and the perfect mix of luxe and cozy accommodations to complete the perfect trip.
