Orlando, Florida is becoming a hot spot for millennials to both live and travel–and it’s no surprise, with the number of things to do, cool neighborhoods, and good eats in this city. While Orlando is still the “theme park capital of the world”, it has a lot of other exciting things going for it, too. Here are 5 things for millennials to do in Orlando, that include a mix of both activities and food.
1. Enjoy An Evening At The Boathouse
If you’re looking for great food and a memorable dining experience, look no further than The Boathouse. Art Deco meets nautical at this Disney Springs restaurant with waterfront dining.
In the mood for steak? The Boathouse has their own Gibsons Blue Star Heritage Angus. How about Oysters? They have the largest selection of Oysters in the state and their very own Lucky Dux Oysters. Cocktails? The Boathouse has an extensive menu full of those, too, including one with a rubber duck on top (Duck Duck Razz). And that’s just part of The Boathouse’s menu.
When you’ve finished dinner, take a Captain’s Guided Tour in a vintage Amphicar around Disney Springs. These rare cars drive on land and enter the water with a splash. It’s truly an unforgettable experience!
2. Go Axe Throwing
Axe throwing is very popular right now, so why not give it a go while you’re in Orlando? It’s a lot of fun! Axe On Axe Off is Orlando’s largest axe throwing venue. The building is broken into 20 custom built target structures that surpass minimum axe throwing standards. Work on your aim or engage in some friendly competition with one of their point tallying games.
You don’t have to be a pro to throw at Axe On Axe Off. The friendly staff is more than willing to help you learn. You can even bring your own food and (non-alcoholic) drinks.
3. Spend Some Time At Topgolf
Topgolf is one really fun thing for millennials to do in Orlando, whether you’re traveling solo or with a large group of people. This sports entertainment complex features an inclusive, high-tech golf game that everyone can enjoy. There are a lot of Topgolf games to choose from, but my favorite is Angry Birds.
Pair your Topgolf experience with some of their awesome food (appetizers, burgers, sandwiches, salads, desserts) and drinks. You can even visit for breakfast.
Tip: Game play is half price every Tuesday!
4. Have A Fantastic Meal At Wine Bar George
Wine Bar George is another fantastic restaurant at Disney Springs. Created by George Miliotes (Master Sommelier), Wine Bar George serves 140 wines by the glass, bottle, or ounce. As if that wasn’t reason enough to visit, they also have cocktails, (very popular!) frozen drinks, and delicious food, including a weekend Wine Country Brunch.
Don’t have time for a sit down meal? No problem! Stop by The Basket at Wine Bar George and pick up an appetizer, frozen drinks, or cocktail to go. You can even make your own picnic basket.
5. Play The Escape Game
The Escape Game is a 60-minute adventure. Choose a themed room and then team up to search for clues, solve puzzles, and complete your mission to “escape” before time runs out. There are 6 adventures to choose from: Playground, Gold Rush, Prison Break, The Heist, Mission: Mars, and Special Ops: Mysterious Market.
While you may have played an escape room before, The Escape Game’s themed rooms and attention to detail are superior.
