Editor's Favorites: Sandra Carr

Being an Orlando native, I have seen my town grow and evolve by leaps and bounds. The "City Beautiful" also has more to offer than just the mouse house. Learn a little bit about me as well as find out what Orlando has to offer by taking a gander at my faves.

Walking down scenic paths and under old oak trees at Mayor Carl T. Langford Park makes you want to appreciate Florida even more.
