Bach­e­lorettes

For a mem­o­rable (hope­fully) bach­e­lorette week­end, hit In­ter­na­tional Drive. With a nice se­lec­tion of restau­rants, Pointe Or­lando is a good place to start. For the food and the fun fac­tor stop by Tav­erna Opa—you're ac­tu­ally en­cour­aged to get up on the ta­bles and dance. Af­ter din­ner, stroll over to (1) Icebar, where you can en­joy bot­tle ser­vice and don fur coats inside the 22- de­gree ice bar. Con­tinue the bar crawl at Howl at the Moon, where the du­el­ing pi­anists know every song under the sun and es­pe­cially love bach­e­lorettes. Grab a spe­cialty cock­tail at (2) Sugar

Fac­tory and take your party up 400 feet on the Or­lando Eye on your own private cap­sule. End the night at (3) Mango's Tropical Cafe, a spec­tac­u­lar Latin club straight out of South Beach with live shows nightly.

Guys Night Out

Or­lando of­fers plenty of fun for the guys, too. Take an Uber over to the Hard Rock Ho­tel for a fa­mous steak din­ner at (1) The Palm. Then walk over to Universal Ci­tyWalk, where you’ll find a mix of dance clubs and bars. Grab a beer and watch the game on one of the 100 big screens at (2) NBC Sports Grill & Brew, the only res­tau­rant of its kind in the coun­try. Pat O’Brien’s is an­other great op­tion, with hur­ri­canes served in the court­yard just like New Or­leans. Once you’ve had some liq­uid courage, you're ready for Ris­ing Star where you can take the stage with your own band and back-up singers. Af­ter your 15 min­utes of fame, head over to (3) Red Co­conut Club for great peo­ple watch­ing. ( Tip: Pur­chase a Party Pass for $12, which gives you ac­cess to each bar in Ci­tyWalk.)

Ro­man­tics

Start your day with a stun­ning (1) hot air bal

loon ride, just in time to see the sun rise over Cen­tral Florida. Toast with a glass of sparkling wine be­fore crawl­ing back in bed. Then head to the lovely town of Win­ter Park for a one­hour boat ride. Win­ter Park Scenic Boat Tours will take you on Lake Osce­ola and two other lakes con­nected by nar­row canals. You’ll see cy­press trees and birds along with mil­lion­dol­lar homes and Rollins Col­lege, Florida’s old­est univer­sity. Grab lunch at a charm­ing side­walk café on nearby (2) Park Av­enue. For the ul­ti­mate date night, make reser­va­tions at (3) Vic­to­ria & Al­bert’s, lo­cated at Dis­ney’s Grand Florid­ian Re­sort, where award-win­ning chef Scott Hun­nel presents seven im­mac­u­late cour­ses paired with wine. Out­side, see the fire­works shower Cin­derella Cas­tle.
