Dining & Entertainment Districts

Orlando is a culinary hot spot with new award-winning restaurants and celebrity chefs, such as Wolfgang Puck, Todd English, and Emeril Lagasse and now Chef Morimoto, that cater to visitors from across the globe. With over 5,000 restaurants you’ll find an extensive menu from fine dining and international eateries to casual cafes and chic wine bars, there’s something for every taste or budget. The destination has six distinctive dining districts including the Convention District (I-Drive), Restaurant Row, Universal Citywalk®, Disney Springs™, Downtown Orlando, and charming Winter Park.

Vibrant Nightlife

From casually sipping wine and enjoying a leisurely cigar at a trendy outdoor lounge, to dancing at a high-energy club and checking out a rock band at a live venue, Orlando provides attendees with nearly unlimited nighttime opportunities. You can see live music performances at the House of Blues at Disney Springs™ (formally Downtown Disney®) and Hard Rock Live at Universal CityWalk®. Experience mind-bending entertainment with the La Nouba™ by Cirque du Soleil® or the Blue Man Group. Or discover a modern, big-city nightlife scene in downtown Orlando that includes dozens of dance clubs, bars, restaurants, and live music venues.

Distinctive Shopping

When it comes to distinctive shopping, Orlando has something for all budgets. While the destination can certainly bring out the glitz, it also knows a great deal when we see one. Our mix of sophisticated malls like The Mall at Millenia, quaint boutiques on Park Avenue in Winter Park, and value-driven outlet centers serve up internationally known brands and unique local finds. And the close proximity to the convention center district – within a 15-mile radius – makes for a stress-free shopping spree.

Golf Legends

Take it from the professionals: In addition to being home to more pro golfers than any other city in the world, Orlando was voted the “North American Golf Destination of the Year” by the International Association of Golf Tour Operators. And with a multitude of stunning courses designed by the likes of Nicklaus, Dye, and Fazio, Orlando offers attendees an exclusive golfing experience not found anywhere else.
