Hello! Florida Sales Coordinator Maria Panico shares her top Orlando picks!

My definition of One Perfect Day in my hometown is Wandering around the farmers market, drinking coffee at Downtown Credo, walking around Lake Eola, and finishing at my favorite restaurant Hawkers Asian Street Fare.

I chose to make Orlando my home because I originally came up here for school and then fell in love with Orlando, There is always something going on here like a big city but the style of living is a lot more small town homey.  

I’m passionate about the food culture! Most people don’t understand how great it really is here, we have so many cool up and coming restaurants in my hometown.

People would be surprised to know that most people in Orlando don’t have Theme Park Annual Passes, I get asked by out of town friends all the time if I want to meet them at the Park, they just assume we live in Orlando and the parks ARE Orlando.

In my opinion Asian Food  like Pho, Bau, and Korean BBQ are the signature food items that visitors must sample in my hometown.
