  • The month of February may be second on the calendar, but it's the first to celebrate love. Skip the heart-shaped box of chocolates and the over-priced roses and enjoy the sweetest holiday of the year with Orlando's romantic activities and special events. For pull-out-all-the-stops romance, wrap your arms around these 14 adoring things to do for Valentine's Day in Orlando. #1. Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts His music set the scene for two friends falling in love. Harry Connick, Jr. vocal and piano jazz stylings created the memorable "When Harry Met Sally" romantic comedy soundtrack. He performs Valentine's Day evening in the Walt Disney Theater. #2. Harbor Nights Romantico at Loews Portofino Bay Hotel at Universal Orlando Delight in la dolce vita featuring sparkling wines, gourmet food and live music at Harbor Nights Romantico. Surrounded by twinkling lights, you'll be swept away to the Mediterranean with tastes from each of the hotel's restaurants. #3. Grand 1 Yacht at Walt Disney World Resort Nicknamed "The Love Boat", gaze upon the "Wishes" fireworks showering above Magic Kingdom as the 52-foot yacht cruises along Seven Seas Lagoon and Bay Lake. Add the private butler service, gourmet meal, champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries for a magical evening of romance. #4. SeaWorld's Discovery Cove SeaVenture Proposal Package Need a little help popping the question? Let thousands of tropical fish and graceful rays be your wingmen/women. The Grand Reef can provide an unforgettable setting for the surprise of a lifetime. Just bring the ring and your beloved - and Discovery Cove takes care of the rest. #5. Leu Gardens Two date night options under the stars: February 6, catch the romantic comedy "Stuck in Love" on an outdoor screen, surrounded by the beautiful garden. And on the day of hearts itself, let luminaries light the way as live music fills the air for the Valentine's Stroll. #6. Barnie's CoffeeKitchen  Celebrate the "Season of Love" with the first Valentine's Weekend Couple's Prix-Fixe Dining Experience at this Winter Park eatery. It starts with a flirty cocktail and ends with (appropriately) a Sweetheart Latte. Call (407) 629-0042 for reservations. #7. DRIP Orlando Let's face it: love can be messy. But it doesn't mean it's not fun! The Valentine's Experience combines performing and visual arts with raining paint, raw emotion and live music, topped off with chocolate and adult beverages. Save your elegant threads for another night out. The show warns: you may get wet! SEE ALSO:  Unique Orlando Gifts and Experiences for Valentine's Day #8. SAK Comedy Lab If you've always wanted to find someone who makes you laugh, the Valentine's Show at the SAK Comedy Lab is where you want to be. In case your date can't pull it off, the improv professionals can surely give you the gift of giggles. The "Sweetheart Special" includes admission, drinks and popcorn. #9. Bach Festival Society - The Sweetest Sounds Members of the Bach Festival Choir join Michael Andrew and Swingerhead for a Valentine's Day concert on Park Avenue. This free event is the ideal place to bring a picnic basket, spread out a blanket and spend the afternoon with your sweetheart on Park Avenue. Bach Festival Society performance will begin around 5:15 PM.    #10. The Enzian Enjoy "The Only Someone For Me" brunch with the only someone for you at Central Florida's only full-time alternative cinema. Start off with a buffet and live music before cuddling up to the classic ‘90s rom-com, "Sleepless in Seattle." Reserve a VIP table, and your sweetheart will know that you're M.F.E.O. (made for each other!) #11. Indie-Folkfest at the Mennello Museum of American Art Enjoy a sweet-heart of an afternoon and evening at the debut Indie-Folkfest at The Mennello Museum of American Art with a Valentine's Day family affair including music, special picnic foods from East End Market, craft cocktails, music and art on February 14 from 2 to 7:00 p.m. in the Sculpture Garden. #12. Painting with a Twist If you prefer to your paint to decorate a canvas, channel your inner Rodin with four classes themed for romance: Love Blossoms, Love You to The Moon and Back, Two in Paradise Set, Scissortail Kiss. Encouraged by professional instructors with paint, canvas, and brushes provided, let your creativity flow with each stroke. #13. Emil Buehler Perpetual Trust Planetarium The stars weave tales of love on the campus of Seminole State College of Florida. Learn the trio of romantic stories of Vega and Altair, Orion and Artemis, and Algon the Hunter and the lost star maidens of Pleiades during the hour-long show on February 12. #14. Rivership Romance  Let the sun shine down on your love...or celebrate by swaying in the moonlight on one of four romantic cruises. Valentine's Day weekend offers a special schedule.

    Where to Go in 2015? Orlando Makes New York Times Travel's List
  • Escapology has come to Orlando! What is Escapology you ask? Our group was asking the same question as we walked through the doors of what looked like a large storefront on International Drive in Orlando. But open the doors and an antique filled room with maps on the walls awaits. An Explorers Club of sorts right in the heart of the lovely Piazza Roma Shopping Plaza. We all got comfortable on the leather couches as our head escapologist was describing how each of our teams (up to 5 players) would work together to find clues, solve puzzles and discover the key to the escape door within 60 minutes. One of three games have been developed by Escapology, The Escape Game Company: The Cuban Crisis, Shanghaied and soon the Arizona Shootout. Our game was loosely-but very authentically--based on The Cuban Missile Crisis.   First we watched a video where we were instructed that we needed to get in and out of Fidel Castro's compound with some top secret information before his return-in one hour, natch! Once we were given our instructions-which still had us scratching our heads-we were ushered into a room and locked in (there's a key inside for those who might feel claustrophobic). But while we scouted out the room of locked boxes, maps, and all kinds of objects that could be clues we set off to solve the puzzles. Tip: We worked in teams. When two of us were coming up with a dead end, we enlisted our co-conspirators to look at it-hopefully in a different way-which worked splendidly! Photo courtesy of David Martin (@Fox35David) Also, if you're really stumped, our head escapologist was watching from outside the door via video and could sense when we needed a nudge. But finally, one room after the other to the next we solved the clues. I don't want to give too much away, but we did get out before Fidel's return-with only minutes to spare. We worked as a team and had fun in the process. In Shanghaied, groups must escape the clutches of Captain Kellett and the Arizona Shootout will put groups to the test on figuring out who the outlaws are before they escape to Mexico. Great for families (they suggest kids over 7), teambuilding groups and pals! A great way to spend an hour! Price per person is $28 and there are also group discounts. Orlando is a destination filled with fun things to do. There are unexpected thrills and laid-back experiences to be discovered. See why you'll never run out of great ways to create memorable vacation stories in Orlando.
