When most people think of Bel Air, Orlando may not be the first place that comes to mind! Here in downtown Orlando, Bel Air is known for its deep roots and beautiful streets. In Bel Air, small town charm is on full display. Nestled among Orlando’s Historic Greenwood Cemetery and Lakes such as Lake Como, Lake Lancaster, Hourglass Lake and Lake Weldona, is where you will find this beautiful neighborhood. Here, you would never know, you are just minutes from the heart of downtown. Tucked along the oak covered streets you will discover mid Century ranch style homes, predominately built in the 1950’s to 1960’s.
Bel Air is a family oriented community where progressive dinners, holiday block parties and Easter Egg hunts take place annually. Here you will still see children playing outside, neighbors catching up on their neatly landscaped lawns and children riding their bikes. The Brand New Lake Como School has been a great addition to the area.
Due to its close proximity to Orlando Regional Medical Center, Arnold Palmer, Winnie Palmer and Cancer Treatment Centers makes this neighborhood highly sought after to local Doctors, Nurses and Medical Staff. This is where Bel Air’s nickname, “Pill Hill” came from in the 1950’s. The Urban Nickname still sticks with residents today! With the many parks, lakes and bike trails surrounding Bel Air, families are able to enjoy the outdoors year-round. If you have a chance, take the Greenwood Cemetery Moonlight tour. You will get a history lesson and learn a little more about the area and founding families of downtown Orlando.
As the local hangouts and restaurants, such as Mills Market, Cilantros Taco’s, Gringo’s and Market on South continue to thrive in the Hour Glass and Milk Districts, Bel Air will continue to be one of Orlando’s Premier Neighborhoods providing families a place to call home for decades to come. As residents of Bel Air, you have the convenience of the city with the beauty of the parks!
