“It's a great spot of Downtown Orlando”
Reviewed January 29, 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

“The Real Orlando”
Reviewed December 3, 2010

Thornton Park is a neighborhood in the "Real Orlando." Beautiful historic homes and bed and breakfasts withing walking distance of restaurants or the park at Lake Eola. We like to stay here because the park has an incredible playground. Sometimes it is tough to entertain kids when you stay in a hotel or bed and breakfast. Here, you can take them for a walk in a beautiful, safe neighborhood or to the playground (with activities for all ages) or for a walk around Lake Eola. BTW, on the other side of the lake (a bit of a walk) are white swan paddleboats for rental. The restaurants also are top of the line, especially, Hue and Dexter's.

“Very small area where Locals go.,”
Reviewed April 14, 2009

Close by to down town. This is a small area where locals go to mostly eat and hang out. Most popular place is Dexters of Thornton Park. Nice resturant with a artsy flair. Certain night there is live music. Or Hue, most locals go there for dinner. Very trendy.
