Reason #5 to Visit Orlando

Beautiful Lake Eola Park!

Located in the heart of downtown Orlando, this gorgeous park and lake is home to many-an-angry-swan, a large population of homeless people, and the occasional street merchant. HOWEVER, it is also one of the most beautiful and diverse places to stroll hand-in-hand with your honey and four-legged friend in Orlando.
Not to mention the sunsets? Are stunning.

Lake Eola is also home to the cities best Independence Day fireworks display (besides Disney, of course) as well as many festivals throughout the year (like an eco-concious Earth Day fest) and a weekly farmer's market.

Lake Eola also has a bandshell right on the water that often has free concerts throughout the summer. Did I mention the angry swans? If you are into that sort of thing, there also oversized swan-shaped paddle boats to impress your special someone, or for some fun for the whole family.

How great is Lake Eola Park?! Who knew Orlando was so much more than theme parks to offer? Oh yea, this girl right here. ;)

That looks beautiful and really fun. I've always wanted to ride in one of those giant swan paddle boats :)
