This is just the preliminary walk route/schedule and is subject to change as I get more information but here is what I have planned so far. Our walk will include two Orlando landmark areas, the first is Lake Eola. This lake is in downtown Orlando and can provide some really nice cityscapes, especially after dusk.

From our starting point at the North-East corner of the lake we can head South and follow the lake around the southern rim. We can then walk West on West Central Blvd. over to the train tracks and then turn South to the Church Street Station area.

Church Street Station is located in downtown Orlando and was constructed around Orlando’s original train station. The restored station along with old-fashioned bars like Rosie O’Grady’s Good Time Emporium swelled in popularity until eventually a whole complex of restored buildings was created. The Train Depot is listed in the National Registry of Historic Places and contains numerous historical artifacts. The most impressive artifact is “Old Duke”, a steam locomotive that was in the movie “Wings of Eagles” with John Wayne.
Once we have walked through this area, we can head East on Church St. and then turn North on Rosalind Ave. back along the eastern edge of Lake Eola. We will then make a right on Robinson St. and head East towards our starting point. I chose this as the start/stop location because there will be some opportunity for some nice sunset cityscapes from this corner of the lake.
The Church Street/Lake Eola location is about 13 miles North of the Orlando Convention Center, that’s about a 20 minute drive up Interstate 4.
If you have any suggestions for alterations, additions, or anything else, please feel free to post it in a comment. I will try and get this all nailed down by the end of this week.
