Things to Do While It’s Cold Near Orlando
In the land of sunshine and warm (most of the insufferably hot) weather), it’s been rather cold as of late. With a cold front in full swing here near Orlando, it looks like your weekend plans of kayaking on the lake or hitting the beaches are all busts. But, there’s no need to worry! There are still plenty of things to do in Clermont and Orlando that you’ll forget all about how fun it is to clean your car after a day at the beach. Lucky for you, Toyota of Clermont has compiled a guide on things you can do this weekend despite it being cold outside.
The Cold Never Bothered Me Anyway
