Romantic Orlando – West Orange Bike Trail

We had the opportunity to spend an afternoon bike riding together on the West Orange Trail in West Orange County. It was a beautiful day, and the cost was minimal thanks to a Living Social Deal. We pedaled for 12 miles, stopping to take pictures along the way.

There are many rails which have been converted to trails throughout Central Florida. If you love to be outdoors and enjoy biking, walking, running, skateboarding or in-line skating, this may be a great way for you to see the real side of Florida. We sure enjoyed our time together as you’ll see in the pictures below!

Happy Trails! 🙂

♥ Fun Dates To Celebrate ♥

January 23

  • National Pie Day – This is a great day to bake your favorite or go out together and order one slice or two.
  • National Handwriting Day – Why this day? Because today is the birthday of John Hancock, the first signer of our nation’s Declaration of Independence. Why not write your love a handwritten note on a napkin and place it under their plate at dinner. Be sure to sign your “John Hancock,” so they know it’s from you! 🙂

January 24

  • Compliment Day – Everyone needs at “atta boy” now and then. Especially from the one you love most.

January 25

  • Opposite Day – Have fun with this one…and finish it with some great sex – after all opposites attract, right?

January 26

  • Spouse’s Day – That’s right – every spouse should have their own special day. Make this one so special they’ll never forget it. Plan by making a list of all their favorite things, and then do all you can to give them the list in one 24 hour period. The fun part – don’t tell them you’re doing it. See how quick they catch on that it’s all their favorites day!

January 27

  • Chocolate Cake Day – no explanation needed.

January 28

  • National Kazoo Day – if you’re inclined to play one, serenade your spouse and see if they can “name that tune.”

January 29

  • National Puzzle Day – Combine both holidays by putting together a jigsaw puzzle…
  • National Corn Chip Day – …while munching on nachos!

  1. Wow- they CHARGE to ride a bike trail in Florida. I guess that’s what you get when you have no income taxes…


    • Debi Walter says:

      Actually, it’s free to ride the trail IF you have your own bike. We don’t – but after such a fun day, I think we’re hooked! There is a place that rents bikes by the hour. As always, it’s good to hear from you! So glad the problem seems to be fixed. 🙂
