Orlando and its surrounding areas are full of venues, events, activities and shops, and while we cover them on a week-to-week basis, this is our attempt at highlighting a year's worth of cool stuff. Inside, you'll find useful lists of museums, bars and clubs, consignment shops, date ideas and more, along with a breakdown of some of our favorite things in Orlando's diverse neighborhoods. And while Orlandoans are constantly telling out-of-towners that Orlando is more than just Disney, we even include a few tips to help take the headache out of your next visit to the mouse.

You'll want to keep your copy of Annual Manual around for a while. Whenever you find yourself caught in a rut of doing the same old same old, crack it open to get the skinny on a neighborhood, museum or event that you haven't tried before. And pay special attention to the list of Orlando Weekly's events. We've expanded our schedule to include enough can't-miss parties and activities to keep you entertained for practically the whole year.

We always enjoy putting together this annual guide, because it reminds us that even with all of the problems we deal with (looking at you, I-4 Ultimate), Central Florida is truly a special place to live and getting better every year. We hope you feel the same way.
