7 Fun Ways to Experience Orlando

Orlando
April 28, 2021


In addition to the expected theme park thrills, you’ll be surprised by Orlando’s variety of exciting offerings when you attend Global Surgical Conference & Expo this August. Make plans to incorporate some Florida fun while you reenergize your spirit, regroup with your colleagues, and recommit to your perioperative career.

Check out these seven fun ways to experience the Sunshine State.

  1. View Wildlife from a Boat
    More than 12,000 square miles of Florida’s geography is water, and its lakes, rivers and wetlands are home to plants and animals not found anywhere else.
  2. Cool Off in the Water
    If you’d rather be in the water, you’ll find plenty of options. The Atlantic Ocean is only an hour drive and the Gulf of Mexico is only 90 minutes away.
  3. Play Golf
    Florida’s golf scene is among the best in the U.S., with the most courses of any state.
  4. Escape to a Tropical Garden
    Lush tropical gardens and green spaces thrive in central Florida’s environment.
  5. Experience an Adrenaline Rush
    Are you ready to get out of your comfort zone?
  6. Play a Mind Game
    Take your periop team and put your minds to work on quirky clues and creative solutions to get out of the room before the time runs out.
  7. Explore the World on International Drive
    Not sure what type of food you’re in the mood for, what you want to buy, or which experiences you want to try?
    • Step outside the Convention Center and stroll or take the I-Ride Trolley down International Drive for an amazing selection of dining, attractions, shopping, recreation, and more. 
    • View Orlando’s theme parks, surrounding lakes, and other central Florida landmarks from The Wheel in ICON Park. Pick from dozens of cuisine options from American to Thai. Cool off at ICEBAR Orlando featuring 70 tons of hand-carved ice, plus custom cocktails served in carved ice glasses.

The options for fun are limitless in the Orlando area.
