VICTORIAN DISTRICT Gwinnett Street to 37th Street Is porch envy a thing? If you're exploring the city's Victorian District, a residential neighborhood featuring homes, galleries, shops and bed and breakfasts, most defi nitely. Named for the architectural style popularized during the mid-1800s through the early 1900s, this roughly 50-block neighborhood features elaborate homes that look like life-size gingerbread houses: think decorative trim, delicate spindles, fanciful turrets and dentil molding all in candy-hued colors. Located just south of the Historic District around Forsyth Park, this area is small, but a must-see for architecture buffs — or anyone who can envision themselves whiling away the hours on a scenic, wraparound porch.
