CityArts is downtown’s largest collective of art galleries where guests will find local and international works of art. The best part is, admission is free Tuesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. For a dose of comedy while you’re at it, check out SAK Comedy Lab where laughter reigns supreme. It’s a place where a small cadre of comedic geniuses, like Wayne Brady, got their start.
With all that said, the real draw here is a massive body of water smack dab in the city’s center. Lake Eola, the area’s ultimate landmark is a peaceful retreat. Joggers trot the nearly milelong loop around the lake. Yoga gurus practice contortion-like stretches. Toddlers toss bread crumbs to the swans. On Sundays the place buzzes with the popular farmers market. With so much to do in this section of town, it’s impossible to get bored.See all Thornton Park Attractions »
