Think Differently this Black Friday in Orlando

Best Black Friday deals in Orlando

In Orlando, shopping malls are easily accessible and ready to start up the Holiday Retail Season with plenty of Black Friday Specials. Last Year a suggestion on how to best make your dollars count in the area was offered in The Orlando Sentinel and it still makes perfect sense. Avoid the Malls and head to the places known for sales all year long- Outlet Stores.

In Orlando that means heading over to Orlando Premium Outlets. Located on International drive, the retailers such as J. Crew, Coach, Kenneth Cole, Polo Ralph Lauren, and others will be a great place to get the jump on your Holiday shopping.

The number one deals usually are for TVs and now tablets but they will most likely be there next week at the big malls and big box stores. These retailers will be sure to make it worth your while to avoid the crowds and the frenzy- a win-win if there ever was one.

Then returning to the comfort of your apartment at 420 East in Orlando will make the day even sweeter. Close to the beach and great shopping makes this Orlando’s best residential choice.

Hiking in Orlando – Outside of Disney World

Best places to hike in Orlando

There are some refreshing out of the way places close by so why not pick up your spirits with an outdoor adventure.

Start out big by going to Bill Frederick Park. Talk about outdoor activities, hiking on the 2.4-mile trail around the park can be combined with camping, golf, and biking.
