Orange County Government, Florida

Spend Some Time With Us

We invite you to explore the rich variety of destinations our area has to offer.

In downtown Orlando, visitors may enjoy a leisurely walk around Lake Eola. It’s less than a mile around the lake, just enough to work up an appetite for some of the outdoor cafes and restaurants, which ring this downtown landmark. Rent a swan boat and paddle out to the famous fountain which anchors downtown Orlando.

While in downtown, explore some of our lively neighborhoods like Thornton Park with a wide variety of restaurants, cafes and clubs. Downtown neighborhoods feature quaint bungalows, tropical cottages and sprawling Italian style villas.

Be sure to visit our many art galleries and museums, including the Orlando Science Center, the Orange County Regional History Center and the Orlando Museum of Art.

The Green City

A close neighbor to Orlando, the City of Winter Park enjoys more park space than any other city in Florida and is home to the Morse Museum of American Art, which houses the largest collection of Tiffany glass on Earth. The city draws thousands of visitors to annual festivals, including the Bach Festival and the Sidewalk Art Festival.

Southern Charm

Fourteen miles west of Orlando, the City of Winter Garden offers small town charm and an interesting historic district with shops, cafes and restaurants.

RECREATION

Orange County has 100 parks, trails and facilities with activities for just about anyone, including bike riding, hiking, horseback riding, swimming, fishing, tent and RV camping, and canoeing along scenic rivers teeming with wildlife.

So as you plan your visit, make sure to reserve a few days to explore all that Orange County has to offer.
