June is just around the corner and the days are full of sunshine once again. With the kids getting ready for summer and Pride rainbows brightening up the city, it’s the perfect time for a vacation. Although Orlando doesn’t host its Pride parade until October, there’s plenty to do to celebrate whether you’re traveling as a couple, with friends, or with the kids. Check out our list below to get you started.
Pride Month in Orlando means sunshine, pool parties, and theme park adventures. If you’re looking for a party, you’ll find some of the nation’s best at Gay Days, Girls in Wonderland, and One Magical Weekend. But if parties aren’t your thing, or if you’re here with the kiddos, you’ll still find plenty to do. Every year, Gay Days participants visit the Orlando theme parks as a group during Red Shirt Days. Don your best red shirts and use #RedShirtDay to share your adventures.
If you’re looking for family friendly activities, Orlando has got you covered. Spend a day together at Orlando’s newest waterpark, Universal’s Volcano Bay™, and find out who’s the bravest of them all as you tackle the Ko’okiri Body Plunge, America’s tallest trap-door waterslide. Take your budding scientists to the SEA Life Aquarium and Skeletons: Animals Unveiled on International drive, or admire Florida’s natural beauty on an airboat ride.
Whether you’re here for a quick getaway or a relaxing vacation, find time to treat your sweetheart to some romance. Share soda fountain style desserts at Ethos Vegan Kitchen, enjoy a sophisticated date night at the Orlando Museum of Art, or catch a performance of RENT: 20th Anniversary Tour at the Dr. Phillips Center for Performing Arts.
Tie the Knot
Has all this talk of romance has got you thinking of taking the next step? Orlando boasts gorgeous settings perfect for both popping the question and tying the knot. Exchange vows in front of Cinderella’s castle at Disney, in the rose garden at the Harry P. Leu Gardens, or high above the city at The Wheel at ICON Park.
No matter what kind of vacation you envision this Pride month, you’ll want to make sure you have comfortable accommodations. At Rosen Inn International, you’ll find spacious guestrooms with free Wi-Fi and HDTV, as well as sparkling swimming pools, on-site eateries, and a convenience mart.
