Airlines get a bad reputation. But for me, it’s not the absurd fees and inflexible policies that upset me the most, it’s the complete lack of compassion, personalization and acknowledgement and ownership of their mistakes that makes them, deservedly, one of the most loathed industries in the public’s eye. Here’s a perfect example from a recent Delta Airlines trip (and don’t forget to read about my American Airlines experience too).
Don’t mistake it’s placement on International Drive as yet another tourist trap attraction. Titanic the Experience* just may surprise you. That’s the discovery I had this past weekend as I explored this fascinating exhibit nestled between a Chinese buffet and Indian Restaurant.
Your experience begins with a tour from a “passenger” aboard the Titanic. At first I was a bit skeptical at this approach. I mean, I want to explore the artifacts at my own pace. But after five minutes, I was convinced that this was the best way to explore the Titanic.
Orlando is most commonly known for it’s theme parks and tourist attractions illuminated in neon lights, but the City of Orlando offers a lot more than roller coasters, characters, water rides and discount buffets. If you’re looking for something beyond what’s published in the Florida guidebooks, try some of these hidden, Orlando gems that are favorites of the locals.
One of Orlando’s signature events is their food trucks. You can get everything from Barbeque to cupcakes, dog treats to vegan specialties and even breakfast. Always arrive early to minimize your wait in line and bring a few chairs to eat in. And if you go with friends, you can split up to the different trucks and sample everyone’s food.
