Orlando’s serene Eola Park and its Centennial Fountain have been a focal point for city life since the earliest settlers used to water their cattle here. A popular spot for runners, the sidewalk circling the lake is almost exactly a mile long, making it easy to keep track of distances. But the traditional way to enjoy yourself here is on a lazy afternoon, hiring one of the swan-shaped paddle boats and gliding peacefully among the real-life swans, before grabbing a bite to eat at the appropriately named Relax Grill (211 Eola Parkway, 407-425-8440) and taking in a concert or play at the park’s 900-seater Walt Disney Amphitheater.
