When visiting Orlando, one thing that you should not miss is the beauty of Downtown Orlando. Downtown Orlando offers so many different things for the whole family to enjoy, whether you’re attending an Orlando City Soccer Game, grabbing bottomless mimosas at one of Orlando’s brunch hot spots, or taking a walk through the park.
Downtown Orlando also has tons of delicious dining options for the family, a night out with friends, or date night! One of our favorite restaurants in the downtown area is the Eola Wine Company, where you’ll find a wonderful selection of wine from all over. Whether you consider yourself a “wine snob” or just enjoy the occasional glass of white or red, you’re sure to find something on the menu you’ll enjoy. Can’t decide? Try one of their wine flights and get a 2 oz pour of four different types!
If you’re like our staff, you like to munch on something with your glass of Pinot. Eola Wine Company also offers up a pretty awesome food menu. Cheese and charcuterie, salads, sandwiches, and delicious flatbreads will all catch your eye. If you visit during their happy hour (Monday-Friday from 3 to 7) you’ll enjoy a free flatbread with the purchase of a bottle of wine! Perfect for a group! Our suggestions? You can’t go wrong with the Buffalo Chicken or Steak Flatbread.
While you’re in Downtown Orlando, there’s no better way to spend an afternoon or evening than just across the street from Eola Wine Company, at the beautiful Lake Eola Park. Take a walk around the lake, admire the swans, or rent your own swan- a boat that is! On Sundays, the park is filled with vendors for the Orlando Farmers Market. Take a stroll, and stock up on some fresh Florida goodies, or enjoy a cold drink under the pine trees. The downtown area, about a twenty minute drive from the Vista Cay Resort, is a hidden gem that many people overlook when visiting Orlando. It’s not to be missed during your stay with us!
