Harry P Leu Gardens is a 50-acre botanical oasis just minutes from downtown Orlando. It's peaceful, relaxing and of course beautiful. A stroll through this haven is ideal for date day, but you may want to mark your calendar for the first Friday night of each month and a special showing on Valentine's Day. That's when outdoor movies are shown at 7:30 p.m. Alcohol is permitted so stock up that picnic basket with a bottle of wine, some cheese and chocolates and enjoy an evening outside. Admission is $6 for adults. If you want to make it family date night, the little ones will cost $3. You will need to buy your tickets online (starting Feb. 1) as they will not be sold at the event and capacity is limited. Social distancing is enforced and groups cannot be more than 10 people. Masks also are required.
- Gardens: Daily 9am-5pm
- Museum (Aug - Jun): Daily 10am-4pm
- Adult $7; Child (5-17) $2; Child (0-4) Free
- Free Things to Do: "Leu Gardens also offers free admission for moms on Mother's Day and dads on Father's Day. Check for plant-sale days, too, on which admission may also be free."
- Best for Free Things to Do Because: I'm no doctor, but I suspect Leu Gardens' 50-acres of botanical splendor may drop your blood pressure a few points on arrival.
