Orlando in late November - All Around Town

I decided to do this thread a year after I did the first one because so much has changed in a year. Orlando was doing really good with a lot of projects on the table to fill the density in, but with he economy the way it is, development has slowed...I went to a few spots in town for the pics:











City Hall:




The Church St ballroom:




My favorite coffeeshop:










Our really cool new SuperTarget!


You have to park on roof at thisTarget, so here's the view from the top floor:






Baldwin Park:










Downtown Disney:


Cirque du Soleil - Théâtre de la Nouba














Some shots from "Little Saigon":








Back downtown:










Lake Eola/Thornton Park Area:










The Farmers' Market:








Publix - A Grocery Store:


From Lake Ivanhoe:




Park Ave Shopping District:












Downtown Again:




























The County Library:


















Thanks for looking! :-)

typically in the winter the average low is 44⁰F (7⁰C). however, tonight the low is supposed to be 31⁰F (-1⁰C). the days are usually warm though (about 68⁰F/19⁰C). it never snows here.

Having lived there for a while, and now west of there....
While you can wear shorts on Christmas usually, after the new year for a month or two you can get to Freezing sometimes. It goes to Freezing, then warms up for a few days to 60-70 degrees(F), and then another front comes, repeat until March give or take a few weeks.

For us, after the summers, to me, it's a nice change of pace for a few weeks!

Nice shots! Good to see some different sides to Orlando, rather than the usual touristy kind of photos we always see. Well done, MNiemann
