Moving to Orlando? We’ve compiled some posts to help you navigate the City Beautiful. From neighborhoods, to favorite restaurants, coffee shops, parks and more!
Becoming a FL Mom
Moving to Florida is a welcome change, especially for many people coming from the super snowy winter regions. If you’re a new Orlando mom, here’s a quick guide to becoming a true “Floridian.”
Located In the heart of downtown Orlando, you can find locally owned businesses for all your needs. Fancy an afternoon at the park (we have several) and then a stroll up to grab ice cream (or a milk shake!) on the main street? Sure. You can do that because it’s College Park. I love my neighborhood, can you tell?
Orlando can seem huge, so we’ve created a way to make it feel a little smaller. Whether you’re a new mom, new to the city, or just want to meet new friends, the Village is the perfect way to connect with moms in Orlando.

Winter Park, Florida
Whether you are a tourist or a local, if you are looking to experience elegant “Old Florida” charm, look no further than Winter Park, Florida, a city just north of downtown Orlando.
I spent the better part of a day driving from St. Cloud to Winter Park, tasting doughnuts (donuts?) from some amazing bakeries. I have a headache, my stomach hurts, and I need a nap.
Kids Eat Free
Every parent loves the word “free”, even more so when used together with the word “kids.” Here’s a list of restaurants in the greater Orlando area that offer ‘kids eat free’, or almost free!
A little over 2 years ago my family relocated to Central Florida. Little did we know that we would find the perfect neighborhood in Maitland. From the parks to restaurants, I’ve listed some of my favorite things about Maitland!
