Quick Tips for Business Travelers: Orlando

Ferris wheel in Orlando

Orlando is iconic for being the home of Disney World Resorts and Universal Studios, but there is much more to see and discover in this Central Florida city.

In honor of our team heading to Orlando, FL next week for an event, we compiled a list of the top things to see and do in Orlando.

Food and Drink:

Café Tu Tu Tango

Interested in a unique dining experience? Head over to Café Tu Tu Tango where you can share tapas with friends and watch artists paint as you eat.

Rocco’s Tacos and Tequila Bar

This standard Mexican joint, located off of International Drive, does not disappoint. Rocco’s Tacos and Tequila Bar has reasonably priced meals and over 175 Tequilas to choose from.

Tom + Chee

Looking for a casual bite to eat as you head on your way to Disney? Check out Tom + Chee, a local eatery, that offers out-of-the-box sandwich selections like “bananarama” and “choco bacon bliss.”  

Activities:

Downtown Orlando

Many locals consider Downtown Orlando the “real” Orlando. It boosts skyscrapers, theaters and shopping centers, and it has a diverse restaurant and nightlife scene.

Kennedy Space Center

Have time for a day trip? Head over to Cape Canaveral and discover the site of many rocket launches over the years. After taking a few photo ops, wander through the Kennedy Space Center museum and test out their interactive space simulations.

Alligator watching

Interested in watching alligators in their natural habitat? Jump aboard an airboat for an hour-long ride in the beautiful Lake Tohopekaliga. Located just minutes from Orlando, Wild Willy’s Airboat Tours is the closest in proximity to Orlando, and it gives you access to see gators, bald eagles, blue herons and more local wildlife.

ICEBAR

Escape the Florida heat and step into ICEBAR, Orlando’s unique ice bar. The 22-degree ice room has ice sculptures and serves drinks in a carved ice glass.
