Ptown is a summer favorite for many – especially east coasters looking for an easy, quick jaunt. Carnival sees crowds of over 100,000 people which can be chaotic but certainly a lot of fun. As someone who works with businesses in Ptown, I have had the opportunity to visit throughout the entire year and can honestly say October is one of my favorite months in town.
Visiting off season really gives you a chance to realize how special a place Ptown really is – without the clusters of people. You can actually get into that restaurant you wanted to try or take the time in that art gallery. You can stroll the beach and grab a cocktail and just sit and chat with friends or reflect on the beauty of your surroundings. With the crisp fall air, you can take a leisurely bike ride without sweating all over the place.
There is still a lot happening in Ptown in October – with events almost every weekend. Here are a few coming up:
As temps go down…so do our rates! Stay 2 nights, Sunday – Thursday.
Book in September for $199 for both nights with promo code: SEPTBUY2

Another loved, and one of the top rated restaurants in Ptown, was The Mews! They have a fantastic list of vodkas for your favorite martini as well as one of the best burgers around!

Anne Steele’s amazing song, “Love Can Take Us There,” has been chosen by the Carnival committee as the theme for this year’s celebration. The song is an uplifting and exciting dance song that reflects the beauty and energy of life and happiness. The song is available on iTunes TODAY, with 100% of the proceeds benefiting the One Orlando Fund.
“I was devastated by the tragedy at the Pulse nightclub and I knew I had to do something to help the victims and their families. So, what could I do? Well, i have a lot of friends in the music business and I knew the best way that I could give back was to write and record a song. I reached out to 2 OUT and accomplished songwriters from Nashville, Shane Stevens and Stephony Smith, and we immediately got to work. We have since written and recorded a song called “Love Can Take Us There”. I thought it was very important to have it be an uplifting dance song for many reasons. One, because I think its important to focus on the love and the outpouring of support that has followed this tragedy. The coming together of the community has been a beautiful thing to watch. Two, because so often in the gay community we feel like outsiders yet we can go to a club or bar and feel safe and surrounded by acceptance. Those victims were dancing and celebrating when they were taken from us and I think its important to keep that spirit alive on the dance floor. The song will be a loving reminder that love can help heal us all. “ – Anne Steele
You can hear Anne perform the song LIVE during the Carnival So80’s Dance Party. She will open the show and get the party started. Get your tickets at:
