Outdoor Activities, Parks & Playgrounds

Florida is hot. But, not always. Outdoor activities are scheduled for the cooler times of the year. Ok. That’s a lie. Sometimes, they’re scheduled for the dead heat of the summer too. But, not matter the season, outdoor events are a great way to get outside and enjoy whatever Mother Nature throws our way.

From outdoor fairs and festivals to food and wine events to concerts and more, outdoor events and activities can be unique and fun events that don’t come around but once a year. It’s fun to get outside, bring the pets, take a picnic and become one with nature. Don’t let the weather scare you away!

No matter what opportunities you find here for outdoor activities, we hope you enjoy getting out there and finding something new, unique and fun to experience with your Central Florida family.
