“Everyone friendly little part of town to enjoy lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2012

Boasted as the "gay friendly" part of town, this old neighborhood has under gone a remarkable transformation!! The older homes and businesses have all been remodeled and look amazing! There are some great boutique shops, salons, spas, bars and restaurants in this area and within walking distance to Lake Eola. The area Feels safe and lively! Great way to spend a day outdoors and living like the locals!
As a straight girl, I feel right at home in this welcoming to all neighborhood!! :)

“It's a great spot of Downtown Orlando”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 January 2012

Its one of those places you instantly feel at home in. This neighborhood as great feeling if community, all encouraging customers to use their competitors restaurants and bars.

Plenty if things to do on Washington Street that means you can ditch the car and enjoy the city and what the local facilities offer.

Looking forward to my next stop in the Street - it does feel like my American Home.

Visit and enjoy this little section of Orlando life
