Why I love Mills Park District
The Mills Park District of Central Florida is conveniently located between Winter Park and Downtown Orlando, and offers plenty of activities for individuals of all ages. With the recent opening of the Mills 50 plaza which includes The Fresh Market, Firebirds, and the Gallery at Mills Park, a 310 unit apartment complex, the area is a convenient place to live, and play.
The Mills Park district has always been known for its eclectic art scene, and unique Asian grocery stores and restaurants, but more recently it has been home to several new and upcoming restaurants that have quickly become staples, and favorites. Included in the list of my personal favorite are Pig Floyd’s Urban Barbakoa, Santiagos Bodega, Hawkers Asian Street Fair, and The Propagation Coffee shop.
There is something for everyone when it comes to things to do and experience in and around the Mills Park District. Leu Gardens, located just minutes from Mills Park boasts beautiful gardens, and often hosts family or couples movie nights; the Orlando Science Center and Museum of Art also have plenty of activities for all ages. For the adults looking to have some fun there is an active nightlife scene in the area, including several bars, restaurants that stay open late and even a winery called Quantum Leap. Other local businesses that cater to your overall experience of the area include Marilyn Monroe Nail Salon, Mosaic Hair Studio & Blowout Bar and Barre Method; all helping you to feel and look your best.
When it comes to living in the Mills Park District there are varieties of architectural styles that are prominent in this part of town. Single story bungalows and duplexes make up a majority of the real estate market around Mills Park. With the ease and convenience of location, many homeowners are able to walk to the areas attractions and resturants.
If you’re looking to be in the heart of Orlando’s up and coming Mills district, I’d be happy to help you consider the various real estate and rental options, and show you around this fantastic neighborhood.
