8 Surprising Things You Can Do in Orlando

So you’re attending the IECA conference in Orlando. Whether you have free time in the evenings, or are sticking around for a few days after IECA, discover what else Orlando has to offer (aside from the theme parks!).

 

  1. Dine out at Orlando’s unique restaurants
    Orlando has a lively culinary scene that you can explore during or after IECA. For a stick-to-your-ribs Southern experience, give 4 Rivers Smokehouse a try for the best barbeque in the city. In the mood for something a little lighter? Then get a table at The Ravenous Pig for a seasonal, locally sourced meal.

  2. Experience the outdoors at Wekiwa Springs State Park

This gem of a park is known for its beautiful landscapes and abundant wildlife. With 7,000 acres to explore, it’s the perfect way to end a conference spent indoors! To really see Wekiwa, rent a canoe or kayak and explore the park by water.

  3. Soar to the stars at the Kennedy Space Center
    Science fiction becomes reality everyday at the Kennedy Space Center, the original launch site of NASA. Tour the Center, come face to face with Space Shuttle Atlantis, and have lunch with an astronaut for a one-of-a-kind day.

  4. Get airborne at Rebounderz
    Not just for kids, this indoor trampoline arena is the perfect way to kick off your shoes and let loose. With thousands of square feet of jumpable trampolines, you can bounce away to your heart’s desire (and dunk a basketball on the jumpable court, just like the pros!).
