Audubon Park

Tucked around a retro res­i­den­tial neigh­bor­hood known for its gar­dens and wild pea­cocks, Audubon Park is a pop­u­lar hip­ster dis­trict, home to award-win­ning, farm-to-ta­ble res­tau­rants, bou­tiques, mom-and-pop bake shops, live-mu­sic venues and a thriv­ing nightlife scene. audubon­park­gar­dens.com.

Mills 50

De­scribed as Or­lando’s in­ter­sec­tion of cul­ture and cre­ativ­ity, this hip­ster hub fos­ters a mix of artists, res­tau­rants, busi­nesses, spe­cialty shops, mar­kets and bars and larger-than-life sur­re­al­ist graf­fiti and mu­rals cov­er­ing walls, dump­sters and elec­tric boxes. The area, just north­east of down­town Or­lando, is also home to pop­u­lar Asian eater­ies. mills50.org.

Ivan­hoe Vil­lage

For­merly Or­lando’s his­toric “An­tique Row,” this unas­sum­ing stretch of old Or­lando lake­front is a walk­a­ble and bi­cy­cle-friendly dis­trict home to eclec­tic din­ing, funky shops and swanky nightlife. You’ll still find an­tiques, but also cool thrift shops, sam­ple stores and trendy bou­tiques. ivan­ho­evil­lage.org.
