Please come join us Sunday, April 19th for ‘The Private Gardens of Historic Orlando featuring Lake Eola Heights’ tour. The event is held by Lake Eola Heights Garden Committee and features a number of local sponsors, including us, the ThinkLiveBe Property Team! We are so pleased to be a sponsor and cannot wait to spend the day strolling through the gardens of one of Downtown Orlando’s most historic neighborhoods. This is a self guided tour where you are invited into the gardens of a number of residences and you’ll have an opportunity to speak with the garden care takers and in some gardens you will even be serenaded by local musicians as you take in these lovely surroundings. We cannot think of a more special way to spend the day!
Tickets are available at Handy Pantry Grocery, aka ‘Garden Central’. They are $15 in advance or $20 on the day of. You can also purchase them online, here.
The tour starts at ‘Garden Central’ at noon and goes until 5pm, but remember it is self guided. There will be complimentary Gem Cars available to take you to and from the homes.
This year is the 61st Annual Easter Egg Hunt in Winter Park. The city hides 10,000 eggs throughout Central Park, children up to age 10 are welcome to join, everyone else can join in on the laughs! The hunt begins at 10:00am but get there a little early to get a good spot as there will be lots of competition…but don’t worry, its very friendly competition! And its okay to come up empty handed because there are plenty of treats to be had at the treat table.
Where: Central Park in Winter Park
When: Saturday April 4th at 10:00 am
Welcome to Colonialtown North! This is a charming neighborhood just North East of Downtown Orlando. Colonialtown North is filled with 1920s and 1940s bungalows, some 1950s ranch homes, and also home to some new construction. It is not a historic district although it is filled with historic charm.
The neighborhood is located within walking distance to Mills50 Main Street district, a thriving business district with shops and restaurants and biking distance to Downtown, Thornton Park, and Audubon Park. The proximity to the Orlando Urban Trail makes it a very bike friendly neighborhood. You’ll find charming bungalows priced in the low $200,000s all the way up to large two – story homes near $400,000. There is a voluntary neighborhood association, a community garden, and community pool and rec center. If walk-ability is in your must have list, this neighborhood should top your list.

What’s Up Downtown. An opportunity for local residents, businesses, employees, educators and pretty much anyone else who wants to network and learn more about developments and initiatives taking place in Downtown Orlando. It happens the first Thursday of every month and in the past there have been some really cool settings and awesome information shared.
Next Thursday, April 2nd, What’s Up Downtown will be a 45 minute Historic Walking Tour around Downtown Orlando. You’ll hear from multiple speakers, see character appearances and even be welcomed into the History Center for a complimentary visit!
The tour starts at 8:30am at the Downtown Orlando Information Center and will end at the 1927 Historic Orange County Courtroom which is located within the Orange County Regional History Center.
I love little neighborhood cafés and restaurants that are nestled between residential homes. We are lucky have a few of them to choose from in Downtown Orlando neighborhoods, and one of my favorites is 903 Mills Market. It may not really be a hidden gem because it is so well known and so popular and for good reason! The menu is awesome, the staff is great but the ambience is what really makes it special. It is super chill, relaxed and easy going, most of the seating is outside but they have a few tables inside as well. During the day you can relax under the shade of the umbrellas and at night under the string lights and night sky. It is located on the corner of Gore and South Mills, just a few steps from Lake Davis. A great place to have a bite and a drink and then meander around the lake and catch a beautiful view of Downtown Orlando skyline!
