Downtown Orlando is divided into two main districts for you to explore - Church Street and Thornton Park.
The Church Street District, which dates to the 1800’s, is in the heart of Downtown Orlando and has all sorts of historic buildings featuring Art Deco architectural styles and a mixture of restaurants, entertainment venues, and night spots.
The Thornton Park District is only steps away from the serene beauty of Lake Eola Park and features upscale dining, neighborhood bars, and trendy boutiques. Brick-lined streets welcome visitors to explore the energetic night life of Thornton Park.
Here are a few places you should visit while you’re exploring these two districts in Downtown Orlando:
Home to the NBA’s Orlando Magic and ECHL’s Orlando Solar Bears, Amway Center is the premier sports venue in Orlando. Amway Center also doubles as an entertainment venue that hosts musicians and other performers from all over the nation. Catch a game of basketball or hockey, or see your favorite band perform live! This modern, mixed-use venue is environmentally conscious and has earned a LEED Certification, all while being able to accommodate over 20,000 seats. View the event calendar here.
Art can be viewed throughout Downtown Orlando in museums, galleries, and even outside! See Art Orlando is a collection of eight permanent outdoor sculptures inspired by the diversity of Orlando. City Arts Factory has six art galleries, classrooms, studios, and an 8,000 square-foot event and performance space in the downtown Arts District that’s dedicated to bringing culture to Orlando. The historic Rogers Kiene Building, built in 1886, displays contemporary art.
Downtown Orlando also offers plenty of family activities for everyone to enjoy. Find fresh, local fruits and veggies at the Orlando Farmers Market at Lake Eola Park. The market is open every Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Afterwards, rent a swan-shaped paddle boat that holds up to five people out on the lake. You can witness the Orlando skyline from the middle of the water, which is a truly amazing experience. Take the family out for an evening of live music, theater, and dance at the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts. There’s no shortage of family fun to be had in Downtown Orlando!
