Orlando, FL

“We would start the day off right with a nice BBQ lunch at 4 Rivers. The food there is out of this world. Then we would probably head over to Downtown Disney. We are suckers for Downtown Disney and City Walk! The atmosphere there is great for hanging out with friends. We would then head over to Winter Park for dinner and night life. Winter Park is such a charming city and there are a ton of excellent restaurants in that area.” — Boyce Avenue
