Where Orlando - - THE GUIDE -

While the rest of the coun­try is still icy and cold, Or­lando is in full bloom. 1) Ep­cot’s 24th In­ter­na­tional Flower & Gar­den Fes­ti­val is un­der­way March through May. En­joy play gar­dens, ad­mire 100 top­i­aries and 220 float­ing gar­dens, and dine at pop­u­lar out­door kitchens. 2) Bok Tower Gar­dens is a peace­ful es­cape. Set on 250 acres with a brand-new chil­dren’s gar­den and play area, the gar­den is fa­mous for its 200-foot-tall bell tower, played daily by the world’s best car­il­lon­neur. Near down­town Or­lando, 3) Leu Gar­dens fea­tures 50 acres of land­scaped grounds along Lake Rowena. Ad­mire 200-year- old oak trees, stroll through the rose gar­dens and even par­tic­i­pate in a di­nosaur scav­enger hunt where you can spot 18 life-like di­nos hid­ing in the flora.
