We've been to Orlando several times. We often think, we'd try something new but we end up doing the same things. After you've done Disney, Universal, Seaworld, even Gatorland,you kinda don't want to do them again (unless you have kids).
Each time we did go, there are several places that we go to. We stay at Parliament House of course http://www.parliamenthouse.com with three bars, a pool, 2 stores, a restaurant and a theater house, its the complete package for a weekend getaway. No nude sunbathing allowed though but we witnessed several people try to do it. Remember, Orladno is family friendly and there's hardly any place that we went to that gets too risque. Sunday nights is best at Parliament where all the tourists and locals converge to Party till dawn.
Savoy is an enjoyable bar. Kinda pricey for drinks but nurse that baby and just watch gorgeous men wearing next to nothing. Full moon Saloon is our favorite. Its a leather bar with a huge patio. As hot as Florida may get sometimes, men here take their leather seriously. So all year round, there are people in harnesses and chaps and sometimes a police officer's uniform.
For a good meal, Friend's is a great place and has big servings (bigger for Twinks but just right for us bears/cubs). The waiter there can give a lowdown on where to hang out during whatever night you're in town.
Bottom line is, Orlando offers some great alternatives if you're tired of the touristy stuff. There so many other men to see and even more to ride.
