Young Professionals

Downtown is the hotspot for older Gen Z and younger Millennials. It’s where college students and professionals live so they can walk to class or to work. It also is home to some of the newest most interesting restaurant choices, plenty of bars and nightclubs so after work and on weekends you can get out for the night. Plenty of highrise apartment and condo choices at good prices for a big city make it affordable to boot!

South Eola


If you want some action but want to be a bit removed from Downtown then look at South Eola. Just south of the business district it surrounds much of Lake Eola, so you get lots of water recreation, but it’s also filled with a cool mix of homes, high-rise apartments/condos and has tons of walkable dining, drinking, cafe-ing and shopping options.

Within the Colonialtown area sits the Milk District. A historic neighborhood filled with beautiful mid-century bungalows and lakefront botanic gardens. It’s also home to tons of bars, eclectic restaurants, boutique shopping and cafes that are owned by and/or cater to the LGBTG+ community in Orlando. https://www.outcoast.com/most-lgbt-friendly-neighborhoods-in-orlando

Baldwin Park


Baldwin Park is a good place for families to start their search if you like the idea of a neighborhood that feels like a part of the city but has the benefits of a suburb. It has its own town center with tons of shops, eats and drinks, all walkable from the apartments and homes in the neighborhood. It also has great homes, schools and 50 miles of walking, biking and hiking paths in the actual Baldwin Park. Mix in the live music, fresh produce and crafts at the Orlando Farmers Market, and you get a sense of the community vibe of the place.

Lake Eola Heights


Hard to beat Florida for retirees and Orlando is no exception. South Eola is a great neighborhood to consider: lots of dining, shopping and entertainment in the most walkable neighborhood in all of Orlando. Not only are the houses great choices for retirees and empty-nesters but it has two of Orlando’s retirement communities: Baptist Terrace and the Orlando Lutheran Towers, for those who favor more structured environments.
