Summer days are here and we can all use this time to explore what’s around us. And whether you prefer hiking (like me), beach days, or wineries, being outdoors always has something for everyone. No matter where you are, you’ll also have more than a handful of pretty and colorful mural art around. Here in Central Florida, we have a lot of these cute art murals!

I have no idea if this mural art still exists. Bu if it does, you will find it in Downtown Melbourne.

And although I’ve explored a whole lot of them, I have my set of personal favorites that I want to share. However, it’s very likely that you’ll see more of them at walking distance from the ones I am sharing.

Explore them and create your very own list of favorites!

Where to Find Beautiful Mural Art in Central Florida

Without a doubt, there are a lot of art murals in Florida. It’s quite impossible to show even half of them in just one post. However, it’s within these murals that I found my Florida vibes when I first moved to the Sunshine State back in 2016. No matter how many art murals I explore, these are the ones that have made my favorites list.

1. Downtown St. Petersburg

St. Petersburg is definitely one of my favorite places when it comes to mural art. The best thing about exploring these murals around this downtown is that you will also find cute shops and all the artsy vibes!

2. Downtown Melbourne

Melbourne is one of the coastal cities that I enjoy visiting the most. At just 1 hour and 25 min drive from Orlando, it’s a place that you really have to visit. There are many murals around the town that are very colorful and super fun for pictures.

3. Mills 50 District – Downtown Orlando

The Mills 50 District is the epicenter of most of the art murals in Downtown Orlando. It’s an amazing place to explore many artsy and colorful murals. Although I have many, many favorite murals in O-Town, I’ll never get tired of these.
