Have you experienced Orlando without the kids, yet? You should. There’s so much to do and see.
My list could go on for days, but here’s a few must-see and do attractions while adulting in Orlando. Be sure to check out our review of where we stayed while visiting in Orlando, here.
5 Can’t Miss Attractions In Orlando For Adults
Mango’s Tropical Cafe & Club
One of the best experiences we’ve had in a long time! Mango’s Tropical Cafe and Club offers an amazing night-life with live music, epic performances and a delectable dinner menu perfect for all age groups.
You receive an amazing bang for your buck! We booked the dinner and a show option at 7p.m. By 8pm, I was dancing along to Samba, Merengue, Cuban Conga and the unforgettable Michael Jackson tribute.
Parking is complimentary but I strongly encourage you to arrive early to ensure you receive a spot. You definitely don’t want to miss this show. Learn more about Mango’s, here.
ICEBAR Orlando’s Fire Lounge
Although we ran away from the snow and cold in Chicago, we some how found ourselves anticipating an ice box experience offered by ICEBAR Orlando’s Fire Lounge.
Upon entry, you’re greeted by a cashier for check-in and prompted to purchase a $10 fur coat or choose the insulated windbreaker provided for free. After check-in a host provides you with gloves, a coat and instructions to have fun and a drink inside this beautifully decorated igloo.
The hubs and I took a few photos and ordered our drink. It was 18 degrees inside the ICEBAR and I literally lasted 10 minutes. I could’ve lasted longer if I added on a second layer of pants, a face mask and such but it was a fun experience.
Universal City Walk Orlando
Adulting in Orlando must include a stop at the Universal City Walk. You can spend an entire day exploring the shops, restaurants and entertainment. We decided to enjoy this epic center at night, late at night, when all of the kiddos have left the vicinity. Plus, it’s not as crowded, you can really relax and enjoy the scenery, a bite to eat and then party at the clubs located on the second floor.
Parking was free after 6p.m. Be sure to take a photo of where you parked your car to ensure you can find it after a few drinks at the bar.
Antojitos Authentic Mexican Food
We arrived at 11p.m. and took a seat at the bar. Although they were closing in an hour, the server patiently walked us through the menu and shared his personal recommendation for food options. We decided to purchase a meatless burrito with an extra side of rice to share. It was authentic Mexican cuisine with a great plated presentation. Along with my tasty meal I slowly sipped on a strong margarita. The perfect way to start off our night.
Bob Marley Restaurant & Jazz: A Tribute To Freedom
We stopped in for a quick bite to eat and enjoyed live Caribbean beats. The decor is a replica of Bob Marley’s hometown in Kingston, Jamaica. You will see photos, artifacts and video clips of the legend. Of course, I began to reminisce about my wonderful time in Jamaica for my 30th birthday.
Do you have a sweet-tooth. Let’s just say, I definitely indulged in the delectable chocolate treats. Upon entry, you’ll be taken back in time to a 19th century steam-punk’d theme decor. Offering scrumptious candy, milk shakes and a restaurant for its big portions.
Red Coconut Club
What’s a night out with-out dancing? The decor reminds you of a tiki, Hawaiian feel blended with a tropical twist. You can hear the music outside the club door so, we slide inside and enjoyed listening to some pop music and occasional hip hop tunes.
Have you visited Orlando without the kids? You migh twant to leave them behind for a weekend of entertainment.
