I will be moving to Orlando this summer for a job transfer. I'm single and don't know much about the night life in or around Orlando. I'll probably rent until my current home sales, but then would be looking at something in the 300k-350k range when I'm ready to buy. For once, I'd like to able to walk most anywhere for anything - movie, dinner, healthclub, dry cleaning, etc. I know there are a lot of downtown condo projects that are either finished or being built, but I have no idea of their demographics. Is there an obvious place that I should look? Thanks in advance.....

Most live in downtown areas. One of the best areas, IMO. Look into Thornton Park, Delaney Park or College Park. All nice places with a decent nightlife.

In Orlando, if you are a single professional, I'd look around Lake Eola and just east of the lake and south of the lake - Thornton Park area.

College Park along Edgewater drive is a good spot to look, as someone had mentioned.

However, when I was young and single, I lived in Winter Park. It was near Rollins College, and trendy Park Avenue. Highly recomended for young single professionals. I like it better than downtown Orlando - it had more of a college campus feel to it.

The above are good suggestions, but lets not forget Seminole County (north side) Look to Lake Mary/Heathrow. Lots of HQ offices up there, decent amount of Tech industry, and right now, Bonefish grill AND Fishbone grill are hot. Just north of Orlando is Winter Park - check out 5th ave and winter park village.

If you want to be able to walk to places, Baldwin Park or Winter Park would be good for you to look into.

Pine Hills suggestion was obviously a bad joke.

I live in Winter Park right near Park avenue, and I think it is the best place to live for a single professional. My other friends (who are also single) live downtown, and we bounce between locales.
