Orlando Weekly
Yes, we know, it’s our publication and our site. But our weekly issue, published in print and online every Wednesday, tells you about all the good stuff happening in Orlando – think of it as your guide to the city. You can browse our website, pick it up in hard copy (it’s somewhere on your college campus) or browse it in flipbook form on your iPad (just download the app). We have blogs, a weekly calendar, guides to dining and neighborhoods and tons more.

The Daily City
Not only does the Daily City keep tabs on local news and happenings around Orlando, it also hosts listings of area farmers markets, blogs, vintage stores, food trucks, cupcake shops and more. The Daily City is also the sponsor of the Food Truck Bazaar, a curated food truck gathering that happens at various locations monthly. Check the website or sign up for the newsletter for details.

Tasty Chomps
Restaurant reviews and foodie news. Food blogger Ricky Ly and his team are always on top of restaurant openings and closings, and they’ll tell you which Orlando restaurants are worth checking out – and which you should probably avoid.

The Orlandoan
This site features interviews with local people doing cool things and a weekly events calendar, and it sells our favorite Orlando T-shirts, which read: “Orlando doesn’t suck.”

Orlando Retro
We love blogs and websites that give us a sense of what came before, and Orlando Retro does just that. From stories about old downtown buildings to cool historical lists (“10 historic places in Orlando to get a drink,” “3 Orlando businesses in vintage Publix buildings”) to images and postcards of old Orlando, this site is a treasure trove of awesome info about the place we call home (well, at least until graduation).

Orlando Hipsters
This Facebook page is updated daily with all the best stuff going on in Orlando.

We welcome readers to submit letters regarding articles and content in Orlando Weekly.
