Who Says There’s Nothing To Do In Orlando? – Lake Eola Swan Boats

eolaslide1Lake Eola is one of those iconic places in Orlando.  The shining water always calms me down.  I love being able to see all the ducks and swans swimming around, or the geese chasing people.  One of things that’s been on my list of to do’s is to rent one of the Swan Boats for a romantic afternoon with my hubby.  For just $15/half hour you and 4 of your friends or kids can take a leisurely ride around the lake.  You don’t have to make reservations and they are available for rent Sun-Tue 10A-7P and Wed-Sat 10A-10P, making it accessible for everyone.

It reminds me of my childhood.  We lived in Texas but would go to Norman, OK every year for our family reunion.  We stayed near Lake Thunderbird and every year my sister and I would look forward to a boat ride with our dad around the lake!  It was the highlight of my summer for many years.

Clearly I have some real nostalgia about it so I’ve definitely got to do this soon, before it gets too hot.  Maybe we’ll see you there!
