Mayor Buddy Dyer and the Orlando City Council established Orlando Main Streets in 2008, recognizing the critical role that local commerce areas play in the overall health of the city’s communities. Orlando Main Street Areas construct, define, and improve our city’s commercial districts through yearly financial support, technical help, and rigorous training from the City of Orlando. 

A nonprofit Board of Directors envisions and implements a distinctive work strategy for each District. Orlando’s current communities rely on Main Streets for their economic survival. 

Orlando Main Streets and Main Street America provide technical help and training in the Main Street Four Point strategy to Main Street Districts in Orlando. Each Main Street group, in turn, hires a full-time Executive Director, obtains matching funds, forms its business, and conducts its initiatives in accordance with an annual work plan. 

Today We’ll be looking at High Tide Harry’s, a relaxed seafood family restaurant with something for everyone at a reasonable price. Between Gatlin Rd. and Pershing Ave they are approximately 2 miles north of Orlando International Airport. Since Orlando’s development of the Districts, High Tide Harry’s has moved to their current location. High Tide Harry’s is within the Gateway District. The Gateway District has partnered with High Tide Harry’s to help promote and uplift local business around the area and serve others. They have been part of the gateway community for three years now and are wanting to help the city come together. These types of synergy within businesses working together brings an incredible sense of community and helps the further growth of all the communities here in Central Florida.
