Waltzing Matilda

The Mennello Museum of American Art sculpture garden is free to view outside the museum. It’s perfect for a photo shoot, romantic walk or picnic date.This is one of my favorite pieces of art in Orlando. This is “Waltzing Matilda” by Alice Aycock. What does it look like to you? A tornado, paper or a flower?

The Mayor Tree is an impressive 200-year-old live oak tree. It’s my favorite large tree in Orlando. It’s part of the City of Orlando significant tree map located on It’s also a popular wedding ceremony spot. It looks magical like it belongs in a movie. It’s located by the parking lot for the Mennello Museum of American Art.
