Church Street Station Tips (2)

VISIT CHURCH STREET...

Favorite thing *ALAS..CHURCH STREET as it was once known is CLOSED*

VISIT CHURCH STREET STATION:Church Street Station is specifically an entertainment complex in the vein of Universal’s CityWalk and Downtown Disney. But the area known as CHURCH STREET is simply the streets in the vicinity and they are aesthetically pleasing with cobblestones and interesting period architecture. Its a joy just to walk around the area.

The Church Street Station complex was originally constructed around Orlando’s original train station. The restored station along and old-fashioned bar Rosie O’Grady’s Good Time Emporium swelled in popularity until eventually a whole 10 block area of restored buildings was created with TONS of things to do.

The designers paid a lot of attention to detail and historical accuracy. 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.

Like Pleasure Island, you pay a fee at the entrance to the complex and you are admitted to all the shows. Food and drinks are not included and seem to be especially priced for tourists. Weekend nights are usually very crowded, but in that good way.

Besides just bars, Church Street Station offers live entertainment, fine dining and the Church Street Exchange Shopping Emporium - a three story complex that has over 50 shops, restaurants and midway games.
Its free to enter and has great atmosphere.

Here is a list of some of Church Street Station’s more popular attractions:

1-Rosie O’Grady’s Good Time Emporium
This is Church Street Station’s original bar, and in many ways it’s still the best. It evokes the feel of turn of the century San Francisco with a dark wood bar and brass fixtures. The two real draws at Rosie’s are the Dixieland Jazz Revue (complete with bartop Can-Can girls) and a specialty drink called the Flaming Hurricane. Although you won’t be in Disney, if you have more than one you’ll see (and be) Goofy.


2-Phineas Phogg’s Balloon Works
This is where the 20&30/something tourist should go to dance the night away. Weekend nights are crowded with a good mixture of tourists and locals. The sound system is incredible.

3-Cheyenne Saloon and Opera House
This immense building is one of the staples of Church Street Station. Built inside a former opera house, the Cheyenne Saloon attracts a large crowd almost every night. It is spread out over three levels and is decorated with tons of old west memorabilia. It is worth it just to look at the inside of this cavernous edifice! There is plenty country music and you won’t feel out of place with a ten-gallon hat.

*To get to Church Street Station take I-4 to Downtown Orlando Exit 38-Anderson St. Turn left on Boone St.; left on South Street; right on Garland Ave. It’s not an easy route , but there are lotsa signs.
