Although Orlando’s biggest draws are its world-famous theme parks and attractions, the city has many exclusive offerings that few visitors get to experience. If you’re planning a trip to Central Florida and have time for a romantic night out with your special someone, there are plenty of hidden gems that can only be found in The City Beautiful. Here are some of the most unique date night spots in Orlando.
Those looking for a perfect date night near Downtown Orlando need look no further than Harry P. Leu Gardens. During the day, visitors can enjoy a self-guided tour through the 50-acre botanical oasis that hosts over 12,000 flourishing flowers and plants including beautiful winter camellias, azaleas, orchid heliconia, pink ball tree, sweet osmanthus, and powderpuff blooms. Afterwards, guests can view featured art in the garden’s historical museum and stay for a free outdoor movie under the stars on the first Friday of most months.
Orlando Flying Trapeze
Treat your SO to an extraordinary date. Learn the art of the flying trapeze at Orlando Circus School. Before flying through the air with the greatest of ease, guests will be instructed on proper harnessing, acrobatic techniques, and safety steps during a brief class. Visitors can then defy gravity as they soar upside down above a safety net while performing various tricks and catches.
ICON Orlando 360 (formerly I-Drive 360)
With attractions that include the SEA LIFE Aquarium, SKELETONS: Museum of Osteology, Madame Tussauds Orlando, and the 400-foot ICON Orlando, the ICON Orlando 360 complex has a little something for everyone. Couples can enjoy a date night high above International Drive aboard the ICON Orlando observation wheel. By renting a private cabin, guests can enjoy an intimate view of the city for two.
Lake Eola Swan Boats
Located in the heart of Downtown Orlando, Lake Eola offers couples a relaxing ride in large swan-shaped paddleboats. Guests can paddle around the lake’s fountain and take in the beauty of the city as a bevy of swans drift by.
International Drive offers couples a chance to cozy-up and chill at ICEBAR Orlando. With interior temperatures of 23-degrees, ICEBAR Orlando is literally a bar made of ice! Guests bundled-up in warm layers can toast among 70 tons of hand-carved ice sculptures with frosty cocktails and warm spirits in glasses made entirely out of ice. Afterward, there is a fire lounge with a full-service bar where couples can raise their temperatures to the beat of Orlando’s best DJs.
Orlando is the ultimate place for couples to mix it up. And the best way to experience a truly romantic Orlando date night is by staying in the middle of all the action. Conveniently located on International Drive, the Rosen Inn at Pointe Orlando is just a short distance away from all the hidden fun that makes Orlando unique.
