Houlihan’s chefs unite diners with mouth-seeking meals culled from a menu of inventive recipes produced with local and all-natural ingredients and flanked by expertly crafted cocktails. Savory lunches arrive tableside in 15 minutes or less, swiftly occupying chompers with midday delicacies such as So-Cal fish tacos with tilapia, chipotle mayo, honey-cumin dressing, and pico de gallo ($8.95–$10.95). Dinner announces its approach with sophisticated cocktail heralds including wines, martinis, and specialty mojitos in flavors such as guava, raspberry, pomegranate, and snozzberry ($6.75–$7.75). Garlic-herb cream cheese nuzzles into the center of savory chicken breasts served over gold mashed potatoes and the vegetable of the day ($15.95–$18.95), and wild mushrooms romp through a blend of cheeses within corn tortillas blanketed by smoky mozzarella sauce in the wild mushroom enchiladas ($13.95–$15.95). Crisp calamari crowns napa cabbage and banana in the University Boulevard location's popular calamari salad ($14.95), with an aromatic banana-ginger vinaigrette that's also sold in incense form.

Nestled in the shadows of ancient oaks and towering cypress trees, Kissimmee Bay Country Club's 18-hole course takes golfers through 6,486 yards of fairways and greens lined with serene water hazards. In total, the course features a dozen ponds that come into play on nearly every hole, challenging players to try forced carries and other crafty shots. The verdant course also peppers a dash of wildlife into rounds, as sand hill cranes are often spotted along the fairways and waterways. Before taking to the course, golfers can warm up their swings at the driving range or motivate golf balls by showing them how easily they can be replaced at the pro shop.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par 71 course
  • Length of 6,846 yards from the farthest tees
  • Course rating of 72.2 from the farthest tees

What began in 1990 as the gymnastics and dance company of competitive athlete and Broadway dancer Christopher Harrison has evolved into something of a worldwide phenomenon. AntiGravity NTF's staff members are some of the same athletes and acrobats who soar over audiences with the AntiGravity theater group, and who appear in high-profile celebrity musical acts and Hollywood productions. Current director Daniel Stover's work, for example, was featured in the 2012 movie Step Up Revolution, for which he choreographed a scene in which AntiGravity NTF dancer-athletes vertically scale a wall using bungee cords.

These performers practice and share their knowledge of the aerial arts in an impressive facility, which boasts equipment that is the stuff of sports performers' dreams. It includes a wall-running track suspended 40 feet in midair, which allows athletes to scale the walls, do flips, and easily dust away ceiling cobwebs. The trampoline staircase puts extra pep in climbers' steps, as do custom-enhanced AntiGravity boots that act as jumping stilts and gravity-defying silk hammocks, specialty harnesses, and an aerial cube. In the dance and gymnastics studio, students bounce on competition-style mats and flooring, whereas an outdoor conditioning field helps boot campers get fit, and a pole-dance fitness studio invites people to strut their sultry stuff.

Liquid Bar & Grill serves up an eclectic menu marrying fine dining staples with casual favorites.

A 12-ounce new york strip steak brings a taste of Manhattan ($17.99), and mahi-mahi comes poached, blackened, grilled, or broiled ($15.99). Fettuccine alfredo pairs the rich Italian classic with sensible broccoli for a balanced, colorful plate ($11.99). Lunchers can cap off a club sandwich and fries ($8.99) with a dessert such as the homemade bread-n-butter pudding ($4.99). A large selection of wines and specialty cocktails invites guests to unwind as they pen family cheers to perform in line at nearby Walt Disney World.

As Tommy, one of Howl at the Moon’s piano players, explains on the club’s website, “Every night…we try and throw a party, regardless of whether it’s a Tuesday night or a Saturday night.” The bar’s trademark dueling pianos serve as the epicenter of these nightly celebrations; patrons submit their favorite songs on slips of paper for the pianists and backing musicians to recreate. If the website’s playlist is any indication, the bands can handle popular songs from all genres and eras, from Bon Jovi’s “Livin’ on a Prayer” to Kanye West’s “All of the Lights.” The performances are spirited: colorful lights splash upon a stage where servers, guests, and chairs that have somehow developed mobility all dance along to the music.

Fueling the celebration is the bar’s indulgent selection of drinks. Servers stand over patrons to plunge jello injectors into their mouths, and revelers grab colorful straws to help drain 86-ounce booze buckets filled with sangria or other fruity libations. Pomegranate liqueur and honey-infused whiskey sweeten specialty cocktails, and local beers add depth to coolers stocked with Stella Artois and Dos Equis.

Amid brick walkways and burnt-red walls, leaves rustle softly. Steam rises in the distance, then quietly disappears. One moment, this place emits smoky hints of cedar; the next, it teems with notes of ginger and cinnamon bark. This isn’t an idyllic college campus on a brisk autumn night. It’s Infusion Tea, a charming café on the balmy streets of Orlando. Sun streams through oversized windows, warming chilly scoops of gelato and triple-decker cream-cheese sandwiches. More than 70 types of tea—including blacks, greens, oolongs, and herbals—can be ordered hot or cool, like most jazz saxophone solos. Though they hail from faraway lands such as China, Japan, and South Africa, many of these teas are organic and fair-trade certified, reflecting values owner Christina Cowherd cultivated while traveling the world in the Peace Corps. Rare, premium teas such as gyokuro transport taste buds to new frontiers as well, whether nestled in a takeaway tin or steeped in a pot made for sharing in house.
