The others in the car will think you're nuts, but if you love Jack Kerouac's writing, you'll make this pilgrimage, even though it's a 5-10 minute stop, tops. Just standing where he stood, sitting on his back stoop (where he sat and ate tangerines pulled...More

Pretty neat to see his house and imagine him living there. If you are a fan it’s worth it. It’ll only take up 5 mins but there’s not much else to see in Orlando.

The program that allows writers to live here rent free is awesome. I think it s a great program which allows the creative people focus on their craft. But it might be interesting to actually see the spot where Jack Kerouac actually lived when his...More

I swung by the house as a long time resident of Orlando. There is a historical marker and a sign on the door saying it is not open to the public. The house is a nice older home, but not much else. It does have...More

The house isn't much. It's just a small, regular house located on some suburban streets. It's nice neighborhood. Pretty quiet. It's an operating writers retreat so they like to keep things quiet. Apparently you can ask to see inside and if it's cool at that...More

Was with my pre-teen daughter who is not yet familiar with this author. We live in Orlando, so it was on my 'things to do list'. I did not contact anyone prior so we did not go into the house. We just drove by but...More

Not much to look at from the outside, but what else would one expect from Keroiac, who was not a flashy person, and who had little in the way of means at the time. The good people at the Kerouac Project of Orlando try to...More

After seeing these reviews, we decided to visit Jack Kerouac House in April 2013. But the house looked like a normal house, no sign, nothing. We did not want to disturb by taking a picture, if there's ordinary people living there, so we left there...More
