For a feel for Orlando's hipster scene, be sure and visit these three cool neighborhoods.
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.
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.
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.
