Tuesday Tours – Lake Eola Heights

IMG_0445

Officially gaining it’s title as the First Historic District of Orlando in 1989, Lake Eola Heights began to build in the 1920’s and has since created a diverse collection of Craftsman, Mediterranean, Minimal Traditional and Colonial Revival homes.

Located just south of E. Colonial and consisting of homes between Magnolia and Mills Ave, Lake Eola heights main point of attraction (aside from the historic homes) would be Lake Eola and the surrounding establishments.  

Lake Eola

From enjoying lunch by the lake at one of the patio seating restaurants to taking a boat trip on the self operating swan boats found on the northern side of the lake, Lake Eola is a quaint location to enjoy the serenity in the heart of Orlando.

A mix of brick and paved roads, sprawling tree lined streets,  and just a quick walk to Lake Eola Park and all that Downtown Orlando has to offer makes Lake Eola Heights the desirable area it is.

With 9 decades and counting the community has managed to restore and remain consistent in appreciating the history of this district.

Go out, see the beauty, take a bike ride through Broadway ave, Stroll and appreciate the landscaping of some of the homes through Concord St, and most of all… Love where you live!

#OurCityBeautiful consists of so many beautiful segments. Send me tons of photos and messages consisting of locations/establishments that I should include when highlighting neighborhoods of Orlando! admin@thinklivebe.com
