7 Reasons To Love Fall in Orlando

7 Reasons To Love Fall in Orlando

Fall in Orlando

Fall in Orlando is a little different than the rest of the country. While we may not have a lot of changing leaves, we also don’t have to spend our weekends raking our lawns either. That means more time to enjoy the beautiful weather and all of these great activities that Fall in Orlando has to offer! Magical Dining Every September, restaurants around Orlando participate in Magical Dining month, where guests can enjoy a 3 course meal from the finest restaurants in Orlando for $33 a person. Magical Dining is a great time to try out the amazing restaurants around town.

Movies In The Park Fall is the best time to pack a picnic dinner and some lawn chairs and enjoy a movie outdoors. Many locations around Orlando host “Movies In The Park” events for free, or for less than the price of a movie theater ticket. Click here for a complete list of Orlando movies in the park events. 

UCF Football Games & Tailgating Everyone knows that fall is football season, but did you know that some of the best tailgating in the country happens right here in Orlando? Before every home game, UCF fans go all out with their tailgate set ups at the foot of Brighthouse Stadium. If you’re looking for a great Fall activity, spend the day tailgating and cheering on the home team!

Beach Days A major perk of living in Central Florida is that beach days aren’t just for summer vacations. In fact, the best beach days are in the Fall when the tourists have all gone home, the water is still warm from summer, the humidity is lower, and the air temperatures stay around 75-80 degrees.

Theme Parks With less tourists, better weather, and special events like Halloween Horror Nights and Epcot Food and Wine Festival, locals know that Fall is the best time to get to the theme parks.

Biketoberfest Every October, Orlando gets a little bit louder with the roar of motorcyclists headed to Daytona’s Biketoberfest. Our Fall temperatures make for great riding weather!

Festivals Local neighborhoods and towns host festivals during the Fall when the weather starts to cool down. Whether it’s music, art, food, or crafts, you can find festivals all around Orlando!

Here’s just a handful of festival events held annually in the Fall:

Winter Garden MusicFest Orlando’s Fiesta In The Park Ocoee Founders Day Altamonte’s Art, Craft and Wine Festival Winter Park Autumn Art Festival

Four Reasons Why It's An Exciting Time to Live and Work in Orlando

Four Reasons Why It's An Exciting Time to Live and Work in Orlando

I love orlando

Without a doubt Disney put Orlando on the map as a worldwide tourist destination, but now the city of Orlando is making a name for itself apart from its tourism roots. It’s an exciting time to be living and working here in Orlando, and here’s four reasons why: A Thriving Creative Community

Urban ReThink

Obviously Orlando has the creativity of Walt Disney World in it’s backyard, but we're also starting to become known for our dense pockets of creatives in the areas of art, digital media, music, photography, videography, and design.

Organizations like Art House Orlando and Urban ReThink are helping Orlando to develop and retain its creative talent, transforming it into a hub of creativity nationwide that could stand side by side with cities like Austin and Portland.

Big City Food

Ravenous Pig Heirloom Tomato TartThe James Beard Foundation Awards are the most prestigious honor in the food and beverage industry. This year, Chefs from four Orlando restaurants were represented among the nominees, including The Ravenous Pig and Luma on Park.

Orlando also has one of the most active food truck scenes in the country, with food truck events around the city on every day of the week (Have you tried the 420 Burger from Crooked Spoon food truck yet?!). And if it’s barbeque you’re looking for, Orlando is also home to the award winning 4 Rivers Smokehouse.

Entrepreneurial Hub

If you’re looking to start a business, Orlando is a great place to learn and network. Orlando is becoming widely recognized as a center for new business and innovation. Orlando is also home to the National Entrepreneur Center, a joint effort between Walt Disney World, University of Central Florida, and the Orange County Government.

Gary Vaynerchuk at the BIG Summit

The Orlando Regional Chamber of Commerce developed an Entrepreneur Academy and also puts on the BIG Summit every year for entrepreneurs and startups, which has attracted well known speakers including Gary Vaynerchuk.

Tax incentives and lower costs than saturated areas like NYC & Silicon Valley have attracted tech companies, startups, and talent to the area. As a result, Orlando has also been recognized by Entrepreneur Magazine as the Number One City for Entrepreneurs, and in the Top 10 for Best Cities to Start a Small Business.

Quality of Life

If you can stand the heat of an average of 107 days over 90 degrees each year, you can’t beat the quality of life here in Orlando. You can enjoy the year round greenery & fresh air on the many bike and walking trails have been developed throughout the Orlando metro area. There’s also no shortage of water around Orlando. From the lakes to the springs to the beaches, you could visit a different spot every weekend for years if you wanted to.

Orlando has been recognized by Forbes as #9 on America's Safest Cities list, and #26 on the Best Cities for Singles list. When compared to other major cities, the cost of living in Orlando is low, so you get more home for your money.

At Talking Head Studio, we feel fortunate to live and work in the Orlando community and are excited to be a part of its continued growth and success!
