When you visit Orlando, make sure to add some “green” experiences to your itinerary. With eco-friendly options and green spaces inside the city limits, the City Beautiful features more things to do than just the usual high-energy Orlando resorts and theme parks.

This 1968 property once housed the Utilities Commission but now sports a sustainable makeover. Reclaimed teak paneling, LED lighting, a rooftop solar field and an efficient HVAC system contributed to a coveted LEED Gold status from the U.S. Green Building Council. The hotel presents a comfortable yet sustainable place to begin your exploration of Orlando.

Harry P. Leu Gardens

1920 N. Forest Ave.
(407) 246-2620
The colorful grounds provide a restful alternative to crowded Orlando theme parks. Instead of standing in line or looking for what to do, you can follow meandering paths and enjoy the flowers and greenery. Check out the various gardens and then join a guided tour of the 1880s Leu House Museum, which is a preserved farmhouse on-site.

Orlando Loch Haven Park

777 E. Princeton St.
(407) 246-2283
There are many things to do within this cultural corridor, including museums, but stay outdoors for some fresh air. Check out the giant oak that's nicknamed "The Mayor" or visit the sculpture garden next to The Mennello Museum of American Art, which offers a prime place to sit lakeside and relax. Then plan to walk or bike the adjacent 2.5-mile Orlando Urban Trail, where you might spot blue herons or turtles on your journey.
