    Looking for fresh culinary ideas as well as fresh produce? You’ll find plenty of both at Sunday’s Downtown Farmers’ Market. It’s been a favourite with top chefs since 1987, so get there early.

    Lake Eola Park is always good for a stroll, run, or just a break from beautiful downtown Orlando. Be sure to check out the farmers market on the weekend.

    Take quarters for the bird feed machine! The birds will thank you! Especially the swans because there are signs posted saying that the swans shouldn't have bread!
