Orlando is a true culinary hot spot with award-winning restaurants and celebrity chefs that cater to visitors from across the globe. There’s an extensive menu of fine-dining establishments, international eateries, casual cafés and chic wine bars for just about any taste (or budget). Restaurant Row, a mile-long stretch on Sand Lake Road, includes more than two dozen casual and upscale dining options. Pointe Orlando, an entertainment complex located on International Drive near the Orange County Convention Center, is perfect for dining and dancing the night away. And additional dining experiences can also be found in downtown Orlando or Winter Park.


Attendees can also celebrate heritage, diversity and history here in Orlando. We offer numerous historic cultural attractions to explore. Like the historic Wells’ Built Museum in downtown Orlando, where music greats like Ray Charles and Count Basie once stayed. Or visit The Hannibal Square Heritage Center in Winter Park, where exhibitions, photographs and works of art capture the lives of the city’s African-American community. Additionally, The Zora Neale Hurston Museum contains artifacts and pieces representing the life of the famed Harlem Renaissance author. The museum sits in Eatonville, the oldest black township in America, and where Hurston once lived.
