Lake Eola Park is quite the little gem in downtown Orlando.
Not far from all the theme parks this is both a nice break for those visiting Florida as well as for those of us who live here.
Here are the top 7, cause 7 is a nice number, things to do while at the lake:
#1: Ride the Swan Boats (this is why I went)
cost is $15 for 30 minutes, that was a perfect amount of time with 3 little ones
and if it’s a busy day you may end up waiting 30-40 minutes for your boat, but waiting is fun- you know builds character – patience!
#2: Feed the Swans
They do a good job keeping the swans easy to interact with, feeding stations dot the shoreline; we were near the playground at feeding time and were able to help the guy feed the swans
#3: Relax by the Lake
There are plenty of benches and areas in the shade to lay out a blanket and enjoy the view and the breeze
#4: Go with Friends
There is so much space and time here to walk and talk and have fun with friends
#5 Play on the Playground
#6 Shop the Farmer’s Market
Food, fresh, fun,
music, beer and wine garden. Need I say more.
Here’s a listen, this girl is great, plus I love the hat.
And here’s a little overview of the market
#7 Walk the Lake
It may seem like a no-brainer to some but you need to make the effort and walk the whole lake perimeter.
You’ll run into some fun bridges, ducks, ponds, trees, statues and more… go explore!
Whatever you do, enjoy the day, the moments and the company.
