Neighborhoods featuring bungalows and turn-of-the-century homes and having a down-home feel are what dwellers and visitors find in the SoDo (South of Downtown) district. The area's landmark is Fort Gatlin where the Army established a military outpost during the Second Seminole Indian War from 1838 to 1849. Today, the area is flourishing with bars, restaurants and chain stores. Take a trip to South Orlando and experience part of Orlando's history. (Photo by Sandra Carr)
