You think the UCF area is all done growing, and then … surprise! With new eateries opening and new locations popping up in tandem with spanking-new student housing compounds, the area grows more diverse in its offerings, bound by sticky floors and nickel beers no more. Don’t forget about the cultural offerings around the area, too, including Theatre UCF and plenty of quality concerts, art shows and literary events dotting the University of Central Florida campus and surrounding spots. Stretching down Alafaya Trail and up University Boulevard, this neighborhood is starting to mature in its own way, while keeping that laid-back college vibe alive.
