  1. Orlando Attractions Area News & Developments

    I liked this article from WMFE 90.7 about our growing local industry to design theme park attractions. Who better than Orlando to do this? It also helps broaden our tourism economy and allows it to offer better-paying job opportunities. http://www.wmfe.org/with-theme-parks-spending-orlando-attractions-companies-grow/80444
  2. Winter Park & Maitland

    Both the current WP library and city hall are sort of meh. At least this time they're thinking out of the box.
  3. Uptown

    I'm sticking with Thornton Park. I like trees too much to live with all that concrete on the other side of the lake.
  4. UCF News

    And Mark Richt at The U, if we have to talk about South Florida. Guess I'll just never be a big city boy.
  5. UCF News

    Tacko was back today against the Tribe - it's a pretty close game at the moment. Amazing to ponder the name coaches leading the Florida football teams at the moment (Lane Kiffin FAU, Charlie Strong USF, Jimbo Fisher FSU and Scott Frost leading the way at UCF at the moment.) Wow.
  6. Other Metro Area Projects

    $1 million redo of landmark Daytona broadwalk's bandshell coming: https://m.orlandoweekly.com/Blogs/archives/2017/11/16/daytona-beachs-historic-bandshell-will-get-a-1-million-facelift From Orlando Weekly Great to see this happening to one of the region's most beloved structures (sadly, we can't say the same for the rest of the broadwalk but one makes do)
  7. Orlando Attractions Area News & Developments

    Downtown Orange County just won't die. It will be in interesting to see if a changing of the guard on S. Rosalind will change the priorities. http://orlando-rising.com/teresa-jacobs-not-done-drive-convention-center-plans/ From Orlando Rising
  8. Lake Nona - Medical City

    And now a Lake Nona Resort. Is there anything that WON'T be at Lake Nona? https://m.orlandoweekly.com/Blogs/archives/2017/11/16/a-health-resort-and-spa-with-a-15-acre-lagoon-is-coming-to-lake-nona From Orlando Weekly
  9. Orlando Attractions Area News & Developments

    But the big question is, will it have a 7-Eleven? "Oh Thank Heaven" will have a new meaning!
  10. If you had four hours

    Alternative: Winter Park Boat Tour and Morse Gallery (for the artsy types.)
  11. If you had four hours

    If first-time to Orlando: the Orange County Regional History Center (about 2 hours), then Lake Eola for World of Beer/ Relax Grill and (if they're particularly athletic), a swan boat ride.
  12. Uptown

    Oh Thank Heaven!
  13. Lake Nona - Medical City

    Water-sports park to open in Lake Nona next year: http://www.orlandosentinel.com/travel/attractions/theme-park-rangers-blog/os-bz-lake-nona-adventure-park-water-20171110-story.html From the Sentinel
  14. Interesting update from fellow UPer Mark Baratelli at Daily City about the proposed "Magnolia Hotel" across the street from DPAC: http://www.thedailycity.com/2017/11/two-story-downtown-restaurant-space.html?m=1
  15. Orlando Citrus Bowl Stadium [Renovation Completed]

    Another big investment in the residents surrounding the Citrus Bowl: http://www.orlandosentinel.com/business/brinkmann-on-business/os-bz-lift-orlando-boys-and-girls-club-20171108-story.html From the Sentinel
