Located one block east of Lake Eola Park, there is Thornton Park. It contains historic homes that range from bungalows to Tudor Revivals, and the streets are paved with bricks. The neighborhood also has a small fountain that has become a central point. Howard Middle School, which was the original Orlando High School, is located here.
Upscale eateries, coffee shops, fun bars, and high-end fashion boutiques are some of the options that Thornton Park offers. It is a lively 24/7 neighborhood with a cosmopolitan feel where a diversity of people live. And the best thing about it is that you don't need a vehicle because everything is within walking distance, great advantage that not all the communities can brag about it!

If you are looking for a fun night, The Stubborn Mule is a great option. With freshly prepared food and a selection of Mule cocktails, this spot has an outdoor patio that offers shaded seating when the sun is too hot. But if dive bars are your go-to, Burton's Bar and Grill is a wonderful idea for the night. Make sure to choose your favorite song on the old jukebox while playing darts.
In case you are wondering if there are dog-friendly restaurants, the answer is yes! Bring your dog to Dexter's and a seat on the outdoor patio while you have either brunch, lunch or dinner. Thirsty? The drink menu offers wines, champagne, ports, and sherry.
