Welcome to the Alex in Orlando blog — I’m an Orlando area resident, not originally from Florida — but after living in and moving to different areas in the country, I find myself at ‘home’ here in Central Florida.
This purpose of this blog is to create a collection of things to do and see in Orlando so you locals and visitors will realize how great this place is (at least in my eyes). With this idea in mind, I give you: Alex in Orlando. With the help of other great local blogs and review sites, my goal is to surprise you with unique and creative outings in Orlando that you can actually afford.
Contrary to popular belief, there are a ton of things to do outside of the theme park area. I hope to highlight the less-visited points of interest. I want to bring attention to independent businesses, family-owned restaurants, cool events, and any other up-and-coming things in CF. Most importantly, as someone on a budget and as a family of 5 (wife and 3 kids), I love to do fun things on the cheap. “More fun, less money!” would be my mantra (if I had one).
A disclaimer on photos: Some of the photos on this blog are mine, many are borrowed. When I borrow pictures from other sites or blogs, I always provide links either in the text or on the picture. If you think I missed a link, or I’m using one of your pictures and you’d rather I not, please contact me.
A disclaimer on events, restaurants, and sites: I’m just one person writing this blog, with a job and family. I can’t possibly go to all the events and therefore rely a lot on reviews and other sources.
A disclaimer on sponsored posts/affiliate programs: some posts and products on this site are from affiliate sites or I received compensation for reviews. The views expressed are mine and reviews are real. Any affiliate income from products or reviews I receive is incidental — if I recommend a product and you purchase it, you do not pay extra to cover my affiliate revenue.
