Valentine’s Day in Orlando, FL

Romance is like doing laundry—you have to make time for it and it doesn’t happen by itself. Laundry day is coming, friends. February 14th is right around the corner. It takes a little planning and a little effort to make a great Valentine’s Day. But, again, like the laundry, the day after doing it you’ll be rewarded with a fresh glow that your friends and colleagues can’t help but notice.


Here are your best Valentine’s Day options in Orlando!




Nothing tops a romantic dinner. Taverna Opa has a Valentine package infused with the lively spirit of the Mediterranean. OPA! The package includes flaming saganaki brought right to your table, a surf and turf entree and dancing! Belly dancers start warming up the dancefloor at 7 with a Greek-style celebration to follow.


The vivacious atmosphere is topped only by the food. Taverna Opa imports its cheese and olives directly from Greece, and their tzatziki, hummus and Greek yogurt is made in-house from scratch!




Disney has sent the bar high for all of you aspiring Prince Charmings out there. If she’s not your Cinderella, there’s certainly other suitors in the Magic Kingdom with a shoe that fits. Make her dreams come true with a Disney Carriage Ride! There’s two unique rides to choose from. One route will take you through the rustic beauty of the Port Orleans Resort Area. Your carriage will glide along the charming pathways and the banks of the Sassagoula River. The ride through the Fort Wilderness Area is a bit more rugged. You’ll travel “through the lush pine and cypress forest where deer, rabbits, ducks and armadillos like to roam.”




The magic of a ferris wheel is hard to deny. The Coca-Cola Orlando Eye takes you 400 feet above Orlando in your own private gondola. The city sprawls beneath you and the clouds hang above. Views reach all the way to Cape Canaveral. Until somebody invents a magic carpet ride, this is the next best thing.


The dining and entertainment in Orlando brings travelers from throughout the world. This Valentine’s Day, show your sweetheart that they mean the world to you at one of our city’s hottest date spots.


The Best Yoga Studios in Orlando

Yoga offers strength, flexibility and a still point of peace in an ever-shifting world. Our busy professional lives and even our beautiful city of Orlando often requires a valuable adjustment in perspective to truly appreciate. Behind all the psychic clutter we drag around with us lies the lives we’ve always sought, if only we had the right eyes to see them.


It’s time to open our 3rd eyes to the amazing options out there. Here are the best yoga studios in Orlando.




Orlando Power Yoga teaches a Baron Baptiste style of yoga that emphasizes the flow (or vinyasa) between the traditional, static asana poses as much as the poses themselves. The room is kept to around 90 degrees fahrenheit to help increase flexibility and release toxins. And the fast-paced flow between poses will melt away fat and build muscle.


If you’re curious about yoga or you’re exploring new studios, OPY offers an unbeatable offer to new students: 40 days of yoga for $40. Stop lounging around in shavasana and check ‘em out!   




Warrior ONE is another Baptiste affiliate offering a variety of classes at all skill levels. They have both heated and non-heated classes with a vow to “meet you right where you are and grow with you in the creation of a happy and healthy life.” Warrior ONE fouces on community. They describe themselves as a “teaching studio” with multiple 200 and 300-hour teacher certification sessions every year.




Project 7 Yoga brings nirvana to the masses. All classes are just $7! “We believe yoga isn’t a luxury, it’s a necessity,” their website declares. Based in downtown Orlando, The Culture Trip praises them for their instructors, who are “known for being incredibly friendly and welcoming to yoga beginners.” With their emphasis on safe and effective movement, deep breathing and meditation, Project 7 will heighten your awareness without lightening your wallet.


You need a break from your busy, city life. And we’re not talking about just another happy hour. You owe it to yourself to be good to your mind and body. Check out the best yoga studios Orlando has to offer!
