Adelyn Rivera is an avid Orlando enthusiast — with New Jersey roots! She moved to Orlando four years ago eager to explore and discover what the area had to offer…but with three kids, it was important to stick to a budget while keeping the family happy.
Her favorite free things to do in Central Florida: Wekiva Island in Longwood, Lake Eola Farmers’ market, Sanford’s Alive After 5 monthly event, rock hunting in local parks, feeding the ducks at Castle Park in Winter Park, and riding the SunRail.
As a stay-at-home mom, she keeps busy with playdates, school functions, kids’ sports, date nights and moms’ nights out. Her philosophy: having fun is all relative. She’s happy to help those who want to keep it simple and inexpensive.
Adelyn graduated with a degree in Business Administration, concentration in Business Management from Wesley College in Dover, DE. Most of her career was spent in the financial industry, but she is also a certified teacher. So you could say she has an honorary degree in budgets and kids — which is perfect for Orlando on the Cheap!
