Hello everyone! Today is a big day for CitySurfing Orlando, as it was TEN years ago today that I opened this blog dedicated to covering Orlando and surrounding Central Florida!
From theme parks to local dining to amazing events, I’ve had the pleasure to discover so many of the wonderful things that make this truly the City Beautiful.
I want to thank each and every one of you who have visited this site over the last decade! Every visit, every social media click and share, every comment…you’ve helped shape this site and let me know what you want to know more about in our city and its nearby neighbors.
At yesterday’s annual State of the County address, Orange County Mayor Jerry L. Demings announced a new campaign the county has launched, called “Safer, Stronger, Together.”
The campaign seeks to further encourage business and resident participation in COVID-19 safety guidelines, and invites consumers to positively support businesses that adhere to strong, visible safe measures.
It may not be snowing, but Central Florida loves a good holiday party. But I also know funds are tight this time of year, with everyone shopping to complete their Christmas lists.
So I scoured the web and found every FREE Central Florida holiday event I could find. That’s right…every event listed has no admission charge.
Visit Orlando’s Magical Dining for 2019 is in full swing, and we were invited to try the Magical Dining menu at The H Cuisine in Dr. Phillips.
This new addition to the famous restaurant row is located in the Marketplace at Dr. Phillips, and features a diverse Mediterranean menu, along with charcoal-oven cooked and charcoal-grilled dishes from its open-fire kitchen.
Up til now, MegaCon has been the premiere fan convention in Orlando, but now word comes that Wizard World will bring their Comic Con experience to the city in August 2016.
Wizard World Comic Con Orlando will run August 5 through 7 at the Orange County Convention Center.
Wizard World is known for contracting celebrity guests to appear at more than one convention so they get a lot of big names in the fandom genres, and has a pretty good reputation for being fan friendly and well-run. I personally haven’t attended one, but I will definitely check out this one in Orlando.
