Explore Orlando and Find the Unexpected


There’s so much to see and do in Orlando — you might just want to make a vacation out of your stay when in town for the PRSA 2011 International Conference. Soak up some of that Florida sun by the pool or at the beach, just an hour’s drive from Orlando. Or, try your hand at one of the golf courses designed by the likes of Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer. Why not reach for the stars at the Kennedy Space Center or relive your childhood with the magic of Walt Disney World? And, for all the shopaholics out there, we’ve got you covered. In Orlando, there truly is something for everyone. What’s that? You want to do it all? Don’t fret. You can always come back!

Inspired Restaurants

Orlando is a true culinary hot spot with award‐winning restaurants and celebrity chefs that cater to attendees from across the globe. The destination provides an extensive menu of fine dining establishments, international eateries, casual cafés and chic wine bars. Restaurant Row, a mile‐long stretch on Sand Lake Road, includes more than two dozen casual and upscale dining options. Pointe Orlando, an entertainment complex located on International Drive near the Orange County Convention Center, is perfect for dining and dancing the night away. And additional dining experiences can also be found in downtown Orlando or nearby Winter Park.

Imaginative Attractions

With seven of the world’s top 20 theme parks in one destination, not to mention nearly 100 other attractions, Orlando certainly knows how to entertain. Attendees can indulge their inner kid — or some seriously adrenaline‐charged adult fun — by checking out Orlando’s theme parks and attractions. Whether seeking to reconnect with childhood nostalgia or experience leading‐edge innovations in ride technology, these latest additions are truly one‐of‐a‐kind.

Oh, and make sure to bring your flip flops and shades. The average high in October is 85 degrees.
