Going to Real World - a few tips

Well, you are going to Orlando for Real World?
Great, best you get the room in the Holiday Inn Hotel, so you can spend all day with Real Studio developers and get the most out of the conference. With three days full of sessions, one day of optional training and the evening events. In the whole week, you'll easily find people in the hotel lobby or at the bar in the evening.

From the hotel, you can walk just 500 meter to Downtown Disney and enjoy a few shops and restaurants. A huge Disney shop, a Lego shop, restaurants in several styles and even a cinema is there. Walking in the other direction down the Hotel Plaza Blvd. you leave the Disney property and there you find a dozen fast food restaurants and a 24/7 supermarket. All in walking distance.

If you like you can see nature. In Florida for example the lakes: Lake Apopka with the Lake View Park in Winter Garden or the East Lake Tohopekaliga in St. Cloud. For some more nature, you can drive to the Hillsborough River State Park. This is a nice park, where you can walk a mile along the river and see some turtles, squirrels or alligators.

Of course you can drive to the east coast. The Kennedy Space Center is a great place and you can easily spend a whole day there if you want to do the bus ride and all the shows. On the way there you can also visit the Astronaut Memorial, Astronaut Hall of Fame and next to it the American Police Hall of Fame. And if you drive to south you can also visit Cocoa Beach.

Like to see history? Seven miles down from Hotel to Kissimmee, you find the Osceola Country History center. Just after Walmart, turn right in the Bass Road, and after some hundred meters, you find it on the right side. There you find a park with a couple of houses from the late 18th and early 19th century.
Next on history is the Fort Christmas Historical Park located half way to the Kennedy Space Center. Another nice way to learn something about history of Florida.

See you soon at Real World!
