Orlando 2023: Mills 50

by | Mar 1, 2023 | Food & Drink, street art, Travel, USA Travel

On Saturday we didn’t want to stay in the hotel room (or at Disney Springs) the entire day, so we took an Uber to the Mills 50 area to check out the street art. While we did find a few murals to photograph, the area doesn’t compare to downtown St. Pete or the Wynwood area in Miami. A lot of the neighborhood looked pretty run down and there were abandoned items of clothing in front of several buildings.

North Mills Ave is wide and busy so you have to go up one side and down the other to see everything and unfortunately, several pieces were blocked by parked cars or construction. The good news is that the art is concentrated in a 3/4 mile stretch so it’s easy on the feet.

 

Once we got to the north terminus (Virginia Drive) we took a left and headed through the Ivanhoe Park neighborhood.

We found this walk to be a lot more pleasant and the Ivanhoe Park brewery itself was inviting with helpful staff and tasty beers. Eric had the Guavacation (a sour, of course) and I got the Tupac Shaporter, then we split a small pour of the Tiers for Years 2022 which was a surprisingly smooth imperial stout. We soaked up the sunshine and the 90s music for about an hour then headed back to the hotel for a dip in the hot tub (and free cocktail) before our 5:15pm dinner reservations.
