Lake Cherokee Historic Homes, Orlando FL

Description

In the Lake Cherokee Historic District there are gorgeous 1930s homes on lakes surrounded by lush tropical trees. It is inspiring to take a stroll along these streets, particularly Fernwood St, Delaney Ave, Copeland Dr, and Agnes St. When you round the corner from Euclid Ave onto Agnes St, you see Lake Cherokee glistening a pale green before you and your heart skips with delight! Fernwood St and Copeland Dr, which connects on either end of Fernwood St, have wonderful trees and tropical plants, and houses looking out on Lake Copeland. There is a park with tennis courts and a small playground called Delaney Park, along Delaney Ave.
Continue walking north up Delaney Ave and you will pass Lake Lucerne and its bustle of cars, and come to the main part of downtown Orlando.
Afterwards, drive south on Orange Ave and check out the modern, chic development anchored by Target called Sodo. The Smoothie Room has juicer juices and techno music.
