Downtown Orlando is a vibrant and eclectic area, filled with art, culture, and nightlife all within walking distance from the Camden Downtown Orlando apartment communities. Here are some things you can do to experience the local vibe:

Explore the Farmers Market

One of the best ways to experience the local vibe of Orlando is by visiting the Farmers Market. There are a few Farmer's Markets in downtown Orlando, including the Orlando Farmers Market at Lake Eola. You can find fresh produce, locally made goods, and handcrafted items every Sunday from 10 am to 4 pm. It's a great way to support local businesses and meet members of the community.

Visit the scenic Lake Eola Park

Lake Eola is the centerpiece of downtown Orlando and features a beautiful lake with a fountain in the center. You can take a leisurely walk or rent a swan boat to enjoy the views. It is only a few blocks from a great place to live - Camden Lake Eola.
