We have officially headed East for the first part of 2020! After an incoming storm changed our New Orleans plans, we booked it to the Orlando area a few days early to explore the city outside of the theme parks. We kicked off the day with coffee, went kayaking at Kings Landing/Rock Springs, had an amazing lunch, and ended the day with a delicious ice cream disaster! We were very surprised by the great coffee, food, and the many things to do in the Orlando area!
