The Orlando Library Offers More Than Books

The Orlando Library System is an extensive collection of libraries and programs with a lot to offer residents of Altis Sand Lake Apartments. The system is a part of the Orange County Library System and features 11 locations in the city as well several more in surrounding towns. Whether you are looking for the newest best-selling book, lessons, workshops, culture or community, the libraries in Orlando have it all!

Deepen your awareness of arts and culture at the library. Experience the relaxation of coloring in an adult coloring class. You’ll get your creative juices flowing while de-stressing. You can also celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month in Spanish language book clubs, Hispanic Heritage artist receptions and Hispanic dessert and recipe swaps.

Expand your knowledge of technology in one of the library’s many computer classes. You can learn the basics of computers, learn how to create and format a professional looking resume, or master Microsoft Office.

The library also offers interactive experiences. Visitors can attend Meet the Author events and participate in Q&As, book signings and win prizes. Or attend Music in the Library and experience talented musicians and vocalists perform jazz, classical and other genres of music.

In addition to all these programs and activities, can you guess what else the library offers? Books!

Visit Volcano Island for Challenging Mini-Golf

If you’re looking for a great way to relax and have fun, a round of miniature golf may be just what you need. One somewhat challenging course near our luxury apartments in Orlando is Volcano Island. This establishment contains not one but two different courses that you can take advantage of to test your skill while enjoying some delightful Florida sunshine.

Volcano Island is the more popular of the two courses, and is somewhat more challenging. This par-45 course contains 18 holes that go up and down several flights of steps throughout. The adventure will take you through a volcano, underneath waterfalls, and across rivers, where you will meet several life-sized dinosaurs along the way.

Tiki Falls is the second course, and is somewhat easier at a par-41. This course actually winds around Volcano Island, and is also adjacent to a lazy river. There are several bridges spanning this river, making for an attractive view throughout. This course is also less challenging physically to navigate.

Special savings are available if you choose to play both courses in the same day. Management even offers a “flex play” policy that will allow you to do so at your own leisure. Simply pay for both games, and then return at any time within the next 24 hours to play the second. Military and senior citizen discounts are available as well.

Playing miniature golf is a great way to stay active, and is something you may want to do often when you live at Altis Sand Lake. If you desire renting a luxury apartment that is close to a number of Orlando attractions, please contact us to schedule a showing.
