Fun at Design & Construction Week
Have friends and family members joining you for the shows in Florida next month? The National Association of Home Builders has some good ideas for last-minute fun in this NAHBNow blog post. See you Jan 10-12 in Orlando!
The Coca-Cola Orlando Eye
This 400-foot observation wheel can be seen from miles away – and offers some of the most breathtaking views of Central Florida. Take in the beautiful Orlando skyline, theme parks, lakes and lush landscape, and on a clear day, even Cape Canaveral on the East Coast. The Eye is on International Drive at I-Drive 360, one of Orlando’s newest dining and entertainment complexes. Pre-book tickets online for the best savings.
Bowling at Kings
This retro-inspired establishment is a great place to hang out for a few hours. It has 22 10-pin bowling lanes, four billiards tables, more than 60 giant high-definition TVs (to catch the game) and great food and beverages. Families with children are welcome during the day until 6 p.m., but it’s 21 or over after 8 p.m.
Disney Star Wars Fireworks
If time is limited, the Symphony in the Stars: A Galactic Spectacular is an excellent reason to visit Disney’s Hollywood Studio. According to the VisitOrlando blog, this show is a pairing of an “over-the-top fireworks show and larger-than-life video projections displayed directly on the Chinese Theater. The new technology transports guests directly into their favorite moments from the entire Star Wars saga.”
Universal’s CityWalk & Disney Springs
These are great places for nightlife, dining, entertainment and shopping. At CityWalk, there are a number of celebrity restaurants including Emeril’s, Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville and the Hard Rock Café. Disney Springs is home to over 175 shopping and dining venues, including the House of Blues and the Indiana Jones-themed restaurant, Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar.
Here, creativity is encouraged with 26 hands-on attractions. Children (and adults) can learn how crayons are made, star in their own coloring page, name and wrap their own Crayola crayon, embark on a 4D coloring adventure and more. The Crayola Experience is at the Florida Mall, and for savings, buy tickets online and skip the line.
Ripley’s Believe It Or Not
Where can you find shrunken heads, an authentic vampire killing kit, a shooting gallery and a wild spinning vortex tunnel in Orlando? Spend a few hours exploring 10,000 square feet of exhibits that will leave you asking: Believe it … or not? Discount tickets are available online.
Millions of people worldwide have enjoyed the extraordinary experience that can only be found inside Madame Tussauds. At the Orlando location, come and pose with some of the most famous faces from history, sports and pop culture, including Shrek, Will Smith, Michael Jackson, Dan Marino, Steve Jobs and Oprah. Discount tickets are available online.
