My boyfriend’s parents recently bought a beautiful house on a lake outside Orlando, Florida. Last weekend we went down to visit for a fun Florida weekend trip. I’d been to Orlando a couple times before, but only to go to Disneyworld. So it was great to see what other fun things central Florida has to offer.
Throughout the long weekend in Orlando, we explored the lovely town of Winter Park, spent the day at New Smyrna Beach and took in tons of sun by the lake. I even saw my first Florida orange tree. While New York will always have my heart, there’s nothing I love more than exploring new places.
Sometimes the best places to travel to are the ones closest to home. Since flights to Florida from New York are only around two hours, Florida in many ways is super close to home.
