Starting off the Main Street Orlando Series, today I will touch on the Audubon Park district.

The Audubon Park Garden District is a unique district of the Orlando Main Street program. Their website describes them best as having an “eclectic historical past.”

In 1911, what is now known as Audubon Park was originally developed as Lakewood Estates by the Fairview Home Company. In 1956, after the US Army Air Corps took control of the Executive Airport, the first commercial airport to Central Florida, the Corrine Shopping Plazas were constructed.

Today, these shops are some of the coolest small businesses around. The area is incredibly laid back and definitely caters to the hipsters of Orlando.

I am a personal fan of the Monday evening marketplace held at Stardust Video and Coffee, and am also looking forward to the long-term economic redevelopment of this particular Orlando Main Street district. Check out the post about my recent visit at the Audubon Park Community Market.
