When the end of the year rolls around, there are usually two types of reactions to it: planning an extravagant party to ring in the new year, complete with costumes and mile-long resolutions, or digging your heels in harder than ever at the idea that a new decade is literally less than a week away. Whichever way you’re feeling, 2020 is on its way whether we’re ready or not, so to help the transition into a new period, we’ve compiled a list of some of our favorite free activities in Orlando to make the most of January.\nWhile the gyms are full of newcomers and the produce section of the grocery store is full of people vowing to eat healthier, you can take this list and venture out into the new year with experiences of substance.\nOrlando Brewing\nWhen: Monday – Saturday, 6 p.m.\nAddress: 1301 Atlanta Ave, Orlando, FL\nWhy You Need To Go: Take a deeper look at the science of brewing with a free tour through Orlando Brewing.
