Relaxed Family Style At Lake Eola

Every once in a while you have one of those days when you sit back for a moment and think to yourself, "This is a good one". I'm slowly venturing out in Central Florida and made it to Lake Eola Park over the weekend. I drove by a little while back with Wannie (my unofficial tour guide) and knew that I had to make a day out of it with my family. The weather this past Sunday was glorious - 70's with a light breeze - a perfect day to spend outdoors. As a former New Yorker, I definitely appreciate the higher temperatures, however they don't lend to good outdoor family activity days. There's free yoga on Sundays as well as the Farmers Market - both of which I plan to check out next time. But yesterday, it was so good!

My main goal with this visit was to do the Swan Boat ride. I prayed it wasn't too expensive - it actually turned out to be extremely affordable at $15 for 30 minutes. We had such a fun and relaxing time on the water, I'd love to do this at sunset with just the hubby and I for date night. How romantic would that be?

We opted for lunch at Relax Grill which is located right across from the boat rentals. I enjoyed the chicken bacon ranch wrap, fish & chips for the hubby, Philly Cheese for Lil Sis and Grey ate everyone's fries. He also demanded to sit in his own chair - no stroller or high chair, lol.

I'm really excited about the Fall season and seeing more of what Central Florida has to offer. It's certainly a family friendly area which is exciting for us as parents. I'm always on the hunt for fun and cheap! Let's see what else I can find :)
