Orlando is most closely associated with the theme park and resort scene, but the city’s artistic and cultural landscape is much more far-reaching and diverse than that. As summer draws to a close, most of the country shifts their focus to indoor fun, and while there’s no shortage of that here, being in the middle of the Sunshine State means being able to take advantage of a few more outdoor gatherings than most.
Whether you’re a foodie, a sports fanatic or simply looking for a place to take the kids, Orlando has a lot to offer in the autumn. Here are just a few of our recommendations:
The Global Peace Film Festival
Celebrating its fifteenth year, the Global Peace Film Festival features an eclectic mix of documentaries and feature films from aspiring movie makers and marquee Hollywood names. The festival has seven participating venues, including the Plaza Cinema Café, the Enzian Theater and the Bush and SunTrust Auditoriums.
Some of the festival’s most noteworthy submissions include Hidden Secrets of the Florida Springs, The Evil Within and The Promise, starring Christian Bale and Oscar Isaac. Whether you’re a die-hard movie buff or just looking to escape the summer heat for a couple hours, make sure to check out a flick or two at the Global Peace festival.
Blockbuster Concerts and Buzzer Beaters at Amway Center
The Amway Center has been Orlando’s top event venue since it opened in 2010—and even going back over two decades when it was the Amway Arena. Obviously, Amway Center is open year-round, but this fall the arena features many high-profile concerts from household names like Bruno Mars and Jay Z. And, as the home court of the NBA’s Orlando Magic, the Amway Center is no stranger to hosting sporting events. In fact, Amway Center has been put on the map as the host venue of Arena Bowl XXVI, the NCAA Tournament and the 2012 NBA All Star Game.
Visit Orlando’s 12th Annual Magical Dining Month
To get a true taste of Orlando, you must first recognize there isn’t just one. Over 100 Orlando-area restaurants will participate in the 12th annual Magical Dining Month. Whether you’re a long-time Orlandoan still looking to sample all the cuisine the city has to offer or you simply need a satisfying dining alternative as you finish a kitchen remodeling project, you’ll be able to indulge in fixed-price meals from restaurant offering everything from French cuisine to Latin and South American fare.
The roster of participating restaurants is vast and varied, including locations from Restaurant Row and the Greater Downtown Area. You’ll also feel leave feeling as charitable as you are full since one dollar from each dish is donated to charities like BASE Camp Children’s Cancer Association.
Brick or Treat at LEGOLAND
Brick or Treat combines two things that adults and kids agree are awesome: Halloween and LEGOs. This year’s Brick or Treat event begins in October and will run through the entire month. Some of the most popular festivities will include scavenger hunts across Miniland USA and daily costume contests, but the real showstoppers will be the spider-themed firework shows that cap off every Saturday and Sunday night. Unfortunately, Halloween falls in the middle of the week this year, so make sure to bring the kids a couple days earlier to close out your spooky October with an awe-inspiring bang.
