"Busy Street, lots of shops"
The street is under major construction and there is always traffic. It’s a pretty congested road since it runs right through downtown Orlando. There are however, lots and lots of restaurants and shops. Some sections of colonial are better areas than others. Some spots can get a little sketchy, but over by Fashion square in Winter Park, the area is nice with plenty of spots to eat. I wouldn’t stay on this road, but it’s a great spot to do some shopping or grab dinner. If you’re looking to take this road into downtown Orlando, jump on I-4 instead, Colonial has way too many lights and slow, bad drivers.
