You’ll see birds native to central Florida, fields of wildflowers, and beauty of Lake Jesup as you ride throughout the breathtaking scenery. After, take a short drive to Historic Sanford near Lake Monroe where you can stroll hand-in-hand down 1st Street, grab a bite to eat at one of the many romantic restaurants and bistros, and finish this date with a walk on the Sanford River Walk.

Leu Gardens

This botanical oasis is located just minutes from Downtown Orlando and hosts a monthly movie night. Pack a picnic basket with your favorite snacks and a nice bottle of wine so you and your loved one can enjoy a romantic picnic and a movie under the beautiful starlit Orlando sky.
