Orlando Solar Bears vs. Florida Everblades
Hockey is back and we couldn’t be more excited! The Orlando Solar Bears are playing the Florida Everblades at the Amway Center in downtown Orlando this weekend!
The Amway Center is following all safety precautions this year to make sure Orlando has the best hockey season, so make sure to get your tickets before they run out. Shades, the ulta-cool polar bear mascot can’t wait to see you there.

Rescued dogs and craft beer? We can’t think of a better combination. If you’re looking for the perfect weekend activity head on down to Celery City Craft in Sanford just north of Orlando for Brews and Rescues!

Blue Springs Manatee Tour
Colder weather in Orlando means more manatees, and what better way to see them than paddling on a Paddle Board in Blue Springs! Located just north of downtown Orlando, join Wave of Wellness on their Blue Springs Manatee Tour this weekend.
All levels of paddlers are invited to this event where you can either bring your own paddle board or rent one. Educators will guide you through the process, as well as teach you all about the gentle giants that call this place home!
