Downtown Orlando is great place to explore and enjoy, daytime, nighttime, during the week or on the weekend. The vibrant Downtown area, located off of I-4 is just 15-20 minutes north of the theme parks. The area is filled with restaurants, shops, bars, nightclubs, and other entertainment venues. N. Orange Avenue and Central Blvd. is at the heart of the city with the famed Lake Eola Park just a couple of blocks to the East. The Amway Center (home to the Orlando Magic), the Bob Carr Theater and the newly constructed Orlando City Soccer Stadium are a few short blocks to the West. Church Street District, as well as the Dr Phillips Center For The Performing Arts, can be enjoyed just a couple blocks away to the south. There’s plenty of parking downtown and throughout the year the area hosts a variety of festivals and special events, so be sure to regularly check out the NTO Directory for great places to go and upcoming events.
