Luxury Orlando Resort Encourages A Weekend Outside
Exploring Orlando’s Natural Beauty
ORLANDO, FL – February 5, 2019 — While most travelers come to Orlando for theme park entertainment, The Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes has designed a Presidential Weekend Staycation showcasing the resort’s setting on 500 acres of the most enchanting natural surroundings in Florida. “The goal,” according to General Manager Jon McGavin, “is to get kids of all ages outside, away from electronic devices, and interacting with nature.”
Local Orlando residents and those near enough to travel to Florida for the long weekend of February 15 to 18, can partake in the President’s Day Weekend Activities which include Eco-Tours on Shingle Creek (kayak or canoe), Fishing Excursions, Sunrise Safari, Gator Show, and more.
To make the most of the warm Florida sunshine, kids are encouraged to be outdoors all weekend long with free golf all day when with a paying adult, boat rentals on Grande Lake, all types of water and pool activities, and arts and crafts including nature-based themes and one involving Recycled Art American Flags. A highlight of the weekend will be the Fireworks Over Grande Lake, which takes place at 9 p.m. on Sunday, February 17.
