Best Orlando Events February 2018

The glow of twinkling lights, the aroma of Italian cuisine, the sound of opera in the air: It's not the Mediterranean coast, it’s the Harbor Piazza at Loews Portofino Bay Hotel.

-SPONSORED- Held four times a year, Harbor Nights is an incredible event that has all the makings of a romantic date night or unique group outing. Spend an evening beside the picturesque harbor sipping select wines and trying unlimited gourmet food samples from the hotel's restaurants. Live music completes the elegant ambiance. It’s truly la dolce vita—the sweet life—at its finest. Visit each wine and food station as often as you like throughout the evening. Plus enjoy live music by Sweet Talkers and dancing.
