Orlando is the city of dreams—where ideas are born and innovation is a way of life. You almost have to see it to believe it. And thanks to these four best views in Orlando, business event attendees can do exactly that and set their sights on something extraordinary.
Orange County Convention Center
Chances are, if you’re doing business in Orlando, one of your first views will be of the OCCC. At the center of Orlando’s tourism corridor, this venue is situated in a walkable, well-maintained resort setting. The eco-friendly complex boasts plenty of large windows and a 1,500-foot open-air bridge so attendees can soak up as much sunshine and palm tree views as possible. Four hotels are connected by pedestrian bridges, each of which overlooks the lush landscaped facility grounds.
Lake Eola Park
For views of downtown from downtown, take a stroll through Lake Eola Park. Rent a paddle boat to drift on the water amid swans or bring a picnic and stretch out to admire the lakeside views of downtown’s tallest buildings. The lake’s iconic fountain also puts on water shows at regular intervals.
The Wheel at ICON Park Orlando
ICON Park is a 20-minute walk from the Orange County Convention Center (OCCC), making it a great post- or in-between-meeting activity. Perhaps one of the most recognizable Orlando vantage points, the 400-foot observation wheel is ideal for both daytime and nighttime sightseeing, and the largest on the east coast! Pro tip: Go at sunset and get the best of both worlds!
This shopping, dining and entertainment destination is where you go if you want just a taste of Disney. Group dining space is available on all three of the decks at Paddlefish, a seafood and steak restaurant set aboard a steamboat with stunning views of Lake Buena Vista. Or sit under the glow of resort lights and a firepit on the outdoor patio at STK Orlando.
