You Belong in Avalon Park

Welcome home to our town, to the nostalgic life of yesteryear, to small-town pleasures and neighborly ways—where kids are raised and grandma’s garden. Where people live and work and learn and play. From the schoolhouse to the sandlot, from little shops to sidewalks, this is a place where everyone belongs.

Here, local merchants know your name and front porch conversations call for lemonade. Here, you live the life you imagined, build the traditions you hold dear, and create those memories to last a lifetime.

Welcome home to America’s town, where the warmth of yesterday unfolds alongside the convenience of today. Where families live and learn and work and play. Avalon Park Orlando, the place where you belong, your own hometown. You never have to leave unless you want to.

Date Night Ideas at Home

If you’re like us, most date nights are spent at home…

We wait till after the kiddos go to bed to get quality time with each other. Maybe you’re like us and don’t have a sitter and are looking to save money – or maybe you just want to stay home for date night.

If you plan on doing a date night at home but you’re stumped for ideas, here’s a list of date night ideas at home!

1. Bon Fire with S’mores

You never know what to expect with this Florida weather, but it is a chillier time of the year. After the sun goes down who doesn’t love a warm fire and s’mores!? Grab some blankets, Graham Crackers, Hershey’s Chocolate, marsh-mellows and cuddle up! It may even be a fun time for the kids to join in as well.

2. Fondue

Maybe you don’t have a fire pit or prefer to stay indoors. You could do fondue with chocolate or cheese or even both! Grab some pretzels, fruit, marshmallows, crackers and whatever else you prefer to dip in that gooey deliciousness.

3. Play Games

When it comes to two player games my husband and I get competitive. Some of our favorites are Checkers, Sorry, Connect Four, War (card game), Jenga, Mancala, Othello and trivia games. There are so many more out there and it may even be fun for you to two to explore a game aisle to pick out someone you’ve never played before.

4. Order Dinner In

We love to hit up our local food hall to order food for a date night in. Whatever you prefer, you have two options here; do a candle light dinner (even if it’s take out!) or set up a picnic in the backyard. If you’re not feeling those two options then consider eating your meal together while watching a movie.

5. Watch a Movie

If you’re anything like my husband and I, we take forever to find a movie to watch. I’d say start off by agreeing on a genre. Next find a few movies within that genre you can agree on. If after finding some movies you’re having a hard time deciding then write them down on separate pieces of paper. Next put them in a hat and then pick!

6. Do a puzzle

Doing a puzzle makes for great conversation. Depending on how much time you want to spend on a puzzle, decide between the 100 piece or 1000 piece ahead of time. I’ve learned those 1000 pieces can take hours. But hey, maybe you want to have hours of conversation?!

7. Create a List of Questions

Make the questions light and fun. Maybe you’ll find out something new. You could do this while going on a walk or sitting on the couch. You can come up with some “would you rather” questions and “what’s your favorite (fill in the blank)” questions on things you may have never asked. TIP: Avoid questions that could cause arguing.

8. Paper Airplane Contest

I thought this would be fun for the competitive couples out there. Grab some sheets of paper. Make your paper airplanes and see whose flies furthest. You could add in bets and deals if you want to make it even more fun!

9. Dessert Time

Do you love sweets? Or love baking? Make your favorite dessert together! If you’re not so much into baking, order dessert from your fave food hall or market! You can never go wrong with dessert!

10. Shared Interest

Is there a hobby you both have in common? Or something your special someone loves that you are willing to give a try? Maybe it’s golf and you can hit some balls in the yard. Maybe it’s painting? Have a fun little paint party together. If you have a basketball and hoop you could play the game HORSE or Around The World. If you have two separate hobbies you could even do both to get a feel for what your partner loves.
