A common question from both investors and renters revolves around what the city of Orlando has to offer. Even if you are only slightly familiar with the area, you know that Walt Disney World and Sea World are extremely popular attractions in the beautiful city of Orlando. While we love our local theme parks for their great fun and entertainment, we also want to showcase the other options for families to have fun when they are in town. The following are a few of our favorite things to do in the area that you might not have thought of.
The Mennello Museum of American Art
Established in 1998, this gorgeous museum is owned and operated by the city of Orlando and offers some of the most prestigious pieces of art from the past several centuries. The Sculpture Garden is always open to the public and is most recognized for the 350-year-plus live oak tree draped with Spanish moss that is called “The Mayor.” Numerous sculptures can be found in the surrounding Old Florida landscape and walking paths, which merge into the larger Orlando Urban Trail bicycle and pedestrian path. If you haven’t had the chance to explore it, there has never been a better time than now!
The Orlando Brewing Company
This seven-year-old brewery located near Orlando’s downtown area is an educational and fun place to learn about Florida’s favorite beer. Offering free tours Monday through Saturday, they also provide live music on the weekends.
Rather than a loud and noisy atmosphere of tour guides and vehicles, take the more relaxing option of a local Kayak Tour through the Shingle Creek waters. Here, you may see alligators, eagles, and much more.
Encore Resort Homes Aqua Park
Regardless of whether you want to take advantage of our theme park concierge service or enjoy local entertainment, you will always have the opportunity to enjoy our lovely Aqua Park! Enjoy our signature 50-foot slide, resort-style pool and much more located directly next to the clubhouse! In addition, since it’s only available to Encore residents and guests, you’ll never have to fight the crowds!
