What to do in Orlando, during SAS Global Forum

Blog Post on the SAS Learning Post by Robert Allison

 

They say "a picture is worth 1000 words" - and I think it might be more like 2000 when it comes to planning out fun/interesting things to do in  a new city! I'm going to the SAS Global Forum (#SASGF) conference in Orlando this year, and I was wondering where the conference hotel was in relation to the fun things to do in the area. So, of course I plotted it all out on a map, using SAS! You might enjoy seeing how I created the map, and you might find the map itself useful if you ever visit Orlando.

Hi, about an hour and a half (1 hr 30 min) northwest of Orlando is Silver Springs (just outside of Ocala).  At Silver Springs, you can take a glass bottom boat and see aligators beneath you (http://www.silversprings.com/glass-bottom-boats)!  Silver Springs has also been the used in many movies - including two old James Bond movies.

Does anyone know of folk music venues, Irish pubs, that sort of thing?

Raglan Road is an Irish Pub at Disney Springs. Good food, drink and music.
