With countless destinations to thrill and entertain, one might assume that outside the realm of amusement parks, Orlando does not posses a variety of attractions. However, Orlando is home to many museums as well as the largest collection of Tiffany glass in the world. The new Tiffany Wing is just one of the many reasons why The Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of American Art should be included on your to-do list. Exhibits showcasing jewelry, art made of glass, and pottery by Louis Comfort Tiffany are must-sees for those with a true love of unique art.
For those who have been going to Orlando for years (perhaps with the kids), Del Frisco’s is a relatively new spot on the restaurant circuit that shouldn’t be missed.

With two floors including state-of-the-art bars, dining rooms, and a charming patio, Del Frisco’s is the perfect place to relax and treat your taste buds.
