Parramore Orlando

Written By VAMONDE Orlando


Parramore has a rich history dating back to the 1880s. It was established as a neighborhood for a segregated African-American community that suffered greatly during the Jim Crow era of institutionalized racism. The history and culture are preserved at the Welles' Built Museum (open to the public Monday through Friday 9 am to 5 pm). For a $2 to $5 fee, visitors can appreciate the history of this community and their contributions. The community, within the years has grown rapidly, reaching about 18,000 residents and the neighborhood has become the home for different schools, theaters, local shops, hotels, and restaurants. The progress is definitely exciting for locals and visitors.

Looking for fun things to do? Visit the Orlando City Stadium and support your team watching a game or assist to the Farmers Market every Saturday and find fresh and healthy food provided by local farmers. For food options, Chef Eddie's is a go-to because of its delicious menu ranging from chicken and waffles to pork chops and mashed potatoes. Unidos Restaurant is also a great option because it serves Carribean cuisine buffet-style and you can eat as much as you can. Just make sure to try the fried Dominican salami, fried cheese, fried eggs and ton of mangú. When it comes to bars, a great spot is Broken Cauldron, home to two breweries with great craft beer selections: Broken Strings and Black Cauldron.
