Where are the best art districts and places in Orlando?
The art districts came to be as a way of keeping the photographic photos, sculptures, and artifacts of local artists for future generations.
They have existed for a long time and have been very useful learning centers for new and returning visitors. Over time, art has sprawled into many museum parks and this has become a source of discovering new artists.

2. Downtown Orlando/Church Street District
This is a perfect place to come and meditate on any day of the week as you marvel about the design of this town. Without a doubt, this historic church street travels your imagination back to the past that dates to the 1800s. This district features a booming nightlife, live entertainment, professional sports, and eclectic mix of fine dining. There are also very modern restaurants in this area where, if you are riding the SunRail from the central part of Florida, you can stop over to have a bite. Some of these shops are Kres Chop House, Rusty Spoon, Ceviche, and Artisan’s Table.
You can also enjoy a cultural night because of presentations at the Mad Cow Theater. This theater is one of the most popular theaters in Orlando.

Milk district is quite a premier live venue for hosting touring and local artists. The milk district is frequented by celebrities including Jimmy Fallon and also hungry locals since its inception in 1968. It is the second of the only two fast-food sandwich joints known for roast beef in the United States. For the lovers of fashion, there are unique pieces of vintage clothing, handmade designs, and products from recycled goods, suspenders and ties, hats, wearable art pieces, and other local brands.
