Internationally inspired tapas served in an art-filled restaurant with an open-air patio. Although originally set up in Key West, Santiago’s now boasts two additional locations in Orlando, each with a particular personality. This communal spot embodies the sharing mentality behind Spanish-style small plates. Come here with a large group to sample the breadth of the menu but make sure not to leave before really delving into the space’s look. The reclaimed wood bar top, stained glass windows, Gaudi-esque furniture and one-of-a-kind artwork all over the restaurant make it that much more special.

A fancy restaurant serving American food… with a twist. The Ospery Tavern is a treat for the tastebuds and the eyes. The design of this modern American spot leaves you feeling luxurious but cozy, with camel colored leather seating, a long marble bar, reclaimed-wood walls and brass detailing characterizing the space. The menu then wows the palate with dishes like pork chops in a whiskey glaze, oak charred shrimp and a very good whole grilled branzino. Come here with a group so you can order even more without feeling too guilty.

Trevi Pasta is a market, cafe and small service restaurant located in College Park. Angelo, the owner, hails from Rome and began making pasta for his family's trattoria in his early teens. The pasta is so fresh (it’s prepared daily!) that all you need to do for a steaming plate of deliciousness is to choose your cut, sauce and potential protein addition before indulging in the delicacy.

This modern sushi spot is more than a restaurant, it’s an experience. Upon entering, notice the white couches illuminated by harajuko-pink lighting and anime artwork and get in the mood for some truly outstanding sushi. The omakase. Let the chef exercise his creativity as he prepares a sampling of both traditional nigiri and sashimi (purists will be catered to) and more Western-inspired rolls, like the hot mess—made with yellowtail, flounder, salmon, avocado and bacon.

Associated to such a long list of awards and commendations, it is hard to believe that Chef’s Table at the Edgewater Hotel isn’t talked about more. In short, expect an intimate dining experience that showcases fresh, local ingredients in a historic atmosphere. The Edgewater Hotel is located in historic Winter Garden, surprisingly close to Disney but undeniably opposite in style and cuisine to the buffet dining you’ll find in the theme parks. Disney goers looking for an upscale meal at the end of the day should flock here in droves.

A hip and eclectic eatery serving Pan-Asian flavors in a Latin American disguise. Take Cheena is for adventurous eaters. Flavors hail from all over Asia but are served in American style. Ever had a Korean beef empanada or an Indian butter chicken burrito? Definitely try the “JapaDog,” featuring Chinese sweet sausage, avocado-wasabi, fumi, cabbage mix and scallion. Just remember that you won’t find any yellow mustard here.

O-M-G! That delicious but tiny Asian snack that's become highly popular across the globe: the bao. These Taiwanese buns are light and fluffy snacks that really pack a punch when it comes to flavor. Fillings come in the shape of braised pork belly, chili lime shrimp, crispy tofu for the vegans and much more. Our advice? Pick three for $9.

To those who know Whole Foods, this is the one we go to when we stay at the condo. For our international friends, this store carries a lot of locally sourced foods, many are more sustainable and/or organic than most grocery offerings. Beware rush hour though, this area of town gets gridlocked at rush-hour as tourists and workers collide from 4:50-7p most days.

Publix is the local grocery chain. Some are better than others. This one is a little...."tired looking" on the outside, and definitely needs a bit of renovation, but inside they have a lot of nice offerings at the deli, the butcher, the fishmonger, etc. They have deals all the time. So if you need to stock up on waters, tea, juices, cereal, steaks, diapers, grab a bottle of wine, some snacks, whatever... this is your closest "true" grocery store.

Shopping
Is this a shopping mall? Eh, it's more of a shopping frenzy. Holiday Shoppers make the pilgrimage several times a year--standing in lines for hours upon hours for designer discounts and deals. It can get down right crazy--people park their cars on landscape medians when parking is full--they're not likely to tow any shoppers... just stay out of the handicap parking and the firelanes, but they'll let you park in a tree if you don't hit anyone else's car. Walking from store to store is outdoors, [pro-tip] but the beer vendors and pretzel hawkers can make a sunny day more manageable for the husbands who fade on the power-shopping expedition. There is an indoor foodcourt and foreign currency X

The Farmer's Market is open on Saturday Mornings 7a-1p and has a ton of great vendors and food hawkers. We highly recommend finding street parking in any parallel parking space in the area, grabbing a cup of coffee and a bagel and strolling through the market, the old train station, the history museum, and making your way down to Park Ave. There are a multitude of stores and great restaurants.

Having lived in big cities, I found this wine store to be truly awesome. Tapped out from throwing around $$$ at the Mouse House? Come grab a chilled Sauvignon Blanc for $5. Maybe you want a nice Borolo from Piedmonte, something to help you taste the dirt of someone's hard work, they have that too. Need a smokey Mezcal? How about some local florida Beers? There's always a free tasting going on, but at peak traffic, there are more offerings, they even do scotch tastings and a lot of cool stuff. To all those retired bartenders and amateur sommeliers, this is your go to.

This is the REAL fountain of youth (it actually could be one of the springs Ponce de Leon was looking for). A local swimming/kayaking place, the water is always the same, 74-degrees. It's crystal clear. Water shoots out of a crack in the limestone like a geyser with such force you can't swim into it. Picnic baskets are allowed, but not alcohol. There is an entry/parking fee--it goes to maintaining our parks, and it's worth it. The entire swimming area has a sea wall around it to protect it from runoff infill and making it nicer to swim.

For those of you who like nature and like a laid back party experience, this is your spot. Live music, good food, beer and wine, nice art, nice water, young crowd, plenty of back yard games, kayaks, canoes, etc. Open daily. This is a local gem. Keep your eyes open for the kapuchin monkey's said to live in the forest across the river. Best times to go? Weekday afternoons and weekend mornings before they fill up. This is the Brunch or.... option? Rent a kayak and paddle down river for the rope swing area and some scenic florida... just don't tease the gators or wade into the grassy areas.

This hidden gem! The Maitland Art Center (formerly known as The Research Studio) is a historic site in Maitland, Florida. It was founded and designed by architect and artist J. Andre Smith (1880-1959) in 1937 as an artist colony, dedicated to experimental art. Funded by philanthropist Mary Curtis Bok, the colony hosted artists such as Ralston Crawford, Milton Avery, and Consuelo Kanaga. It is located at 231 West Packwood Avenue. On November 17, 1982, it was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places. The Maitland Art Center is one of the five museums encompassed by the Art & History Museums - Maitland (A&H). The A&H's Maitland Art Center offers artist residency programs, a variety of art classes for adults and children, professional development for artists, and dynamic programming for art appreciation. The A&H is a non-profit organization funded by earned income and contributions by the City of Maitland, the State of Florida, United Arts of Central Florida, grants, and individual donations. The A&H's Maitland Art Center is one of the few examples of Mayan Revival architecture, also known as Fantasy Architecture in the southeast. The grounds are a common location for outdoor weddings. The art center offers three areas for weddings: the Main Garden, the Chapel, and the Mayan Courtyard. The Center (as The Research Studio (Maitland Art Center)) was designated a National Historic Landmark in August 2014. It was given this designation primarily for its distinctive architecture, a Mayan-influenced interpretation of Art Deco.

The art center offers three areas for weddings: the Main Garden, the Chapel, and the Mayan Courtyard. The Center (as The Research Studio (Maitland Art Center)) was designated a National Historic Landmark in August 2014. It was given this designation primarily for its distinctive architecture, a Mayan-influenced interpretation of Art Deco.

Uncle Tony's Donut Shoppe doesn't sell donuts. They sell records. But on the North side of the building, they commissioned an artist to paint a "Greetings form Orlando" sign. So, for your instagram, here-ya-go.

At the front of the park, you can stroll through Tomorrowland and go to Space Mountain and mine some astroids? Environmental Prototype Community Of Tomorrow... And then because adults ruin everything, you can "drink around the world."

I grew up calling it MGM Studios... I guess we're now calling it Disney's Hollywood Studios--this park is about special effects and is pretty fun. Tower of Terror and the Haunted Mansion are classics.

Universal came to Orlando after Disney. Whereas Disney is outside the city and attempts to create a magical utopia, Universal squeezed into a void between Disney and Downtown--it's flavor is more gritty, and leans toward the fantastic over the magical.

American racing owe's a large bit of history and innovation to the hard, hard, hard, white beach sand of Daytona. Wave after wave has crushed and ground what was once coral into sand so fine, it's like pavement--so naturally, thrill seekers found the beach to be like a long flat stretch of road--to race on. A hundred years later...Daytona 500 and bike week(s).

In Florida, the term "Cracker" referred to cattle drivers. The cracker cow is extremely resilient having adapted to Florida over 500 years. Adventure seekers can even join the yearly cattledrive that passes through Yeehaw Junction.

is a historic neighborhood in Tampa, Florida, United States, located just northeast of downtown. It was founded in the 1880s by Vicente Martinez-Ybor and other cigar manufacturers and was populated by thousands of immigrants, mainly from Cuba, Spain, and Italy. For the next 50 years, workers in Ybor City's cigar factories rolled hundreds of millions of cigars annually. Ybor City was unique in the American South as a successful town almost entirely populated and owned by immigrants. The neighborhood had features unusual among contemporary communities in the south, most notably its multi-ethnic and multi-racial population and their many mutual aid societies. The cigar industry employed thousands of well-paid workers, helping Tampa grow from an economically depressed village to a bustling city in about 20 years and giving it the nickname "Cigar City". Ybor City grew and flourished from the 1890s until the Great Depression of the 1930s, when a drop in demand for fine cigars reduced the number of cigar factories and mechanization in the cigar industry greatly reduced employment opportunities in the neighborhood. This process accelerated after World War II, and a steady exodus of residents and businesses continued until large areas of the formerly vibrant neighborhood were virtually abandoned by the late 1970s. Attempts at redevelopment failed until the 1980s, when an influx of artists began a slow process of gentrification. In the 1990s and early 2000s, a portion of the original neighborhood around 7th Avenue developed into a night club and entertainment district, and many old buildings were renovated for new uses. Since then, the area's economy has diversified with more offices and residences, and the population has shown notable growth for the first time in over half a century.

Think you're a real hipster and all the other hipsters are just imitating? Do recognize the correct brand of absynthe being drizzled ceremoniously over the flame-kissed sugar cube? If you don't you can politely ask for a menu, the bartenders always come courteous and come correct. Check out The Courtesy.
