Unique experiences for your day off OAKLAND Oakland Nature Preserve West of Orlando, just 30 minutes from the attractions and nestled between Winter Garden and Clermont in the beautiful town of Oakland, lies a "hidden gem": a 128acre preserve offering environmental education and ecotourism activities for visitors of all ages. The preserve includes miles of trails through hilly, forested uplands and wetlands, some of which used to be citrus groves and planted pines. You’re likely to see gopher tortoises, alligators and many types of birds.

MT. DORA Modernism Museum David Bowie, mourned by the world on his passing in 2016, was one of the most radical figures in recent popular culture. Memphis, founded under the leadership of Ettore Sottsass in Milan in 1981, was the most radical of all design groups. The exhibition Space Oddities: Bowie|Sottsass|Memphis brings them together. Bowie built up an extensive body of Memphis work over the years — iconic works by Sottsass and his colleagues, including Michele De Lucchi, Nathalie DuPasquier, Shiro Kuramata and Martine Bedin. This exhibition, the largest gathering of Memphis objects ever presented in an American museum, includes more than 75 examples, many from Bowie’s private collection. It is a fabulous opportunity to see a large collection of Memphis — and to experience the private world of a great pop visionary.
