Central Florida’s communities offer something for everyone – from a vibrant downtown…to quieter, suburban neighborhood.
Oviedo — Ranked as one of the top 100 places to live, there’s no place quite like Oviedo. And it’s not just because chickens run wild! Breathtaking air boat rides, a walker-friendly trail, golf clubs, such as the Twin Rivers course and the Big Oaks Ranch, and top-notch schools continue to attract new residents.
Winter Springs – When Money Magazine ranked Winter Springs in the top 40 places to live in the US, they mentioned the great schools, abundance of parks and growing downtown region. Plus, this Central Florida community also boasts the exclusive, family friendly Tuscawilla County Club, as well as the Scottish Highland games, with activities such as Tossing the Caber, Sheaf Toss and Hammer Throw.
Winter Park – One of Central Florida’s most well-known and prestigious communities, Winter Park is home of Park Ave, a premier shopping district, as well as Rollins College, a nationally recognized private college. Additionally, the community offers a weekly farmer’s market and an art festival twice a year. If you visit Winter Park, take the boat tour to see the cities’ town of lakes.
Downtown Orlando – Imagine living downtown, where you can walk out your front door and take a stroll around Lake Eola, eat or shop in Thornton Park, or catch an Orlando Magic game. From single-family homes, to a diverse mix of condo developments, Orlando’s central city is quickly becoming a prime home location. Want the downtown energy but neighborhood feel? Check out Delaney Park, historical neighborhoods, or the homes near the botanical Leu Gardens, which is just a stone’s throw away from the neotraditional, award-winning Baldwin Park.
College Park – A charming community with lots of bungalow homes and an active downtown, College Park is one of Central Florida’s best-kept secrets. It features a variety of restaurants – from sushi and modern dining … to hearty Italian and delicious deli sandwiches – as well as a multitude of shopping options on Edgewater Dr. College Park is in an ideal location: Between downtown and Winter Park, near I-4 and Florida Hospital.
Lake Mary – Close to downtown and close to the beach, Lake Mary is one of the top five communities in the country to call home. Just ask current residents (and sports celebrities) such as Lee Corso, Dwight Howard and Stan Van Gundy. Plus, outstanding golf courses (Heathrow and Timacuan), a vibrant town center, a host of restaurants and shopping options, plus great schools and a thriving economy attract a growing number of residents.
UCF / East Orlando Area – In East Orlando, home of the University of Central Florida, residents enjoy a “college town” atmosphere, with sporting events and cultural activities. Residents in this part of town enjoy Waterford Lakes, home of shopping and restaurants, as well as close proximity to 408 and 417. Plus, it’s a prime location for investors. With more than 50,000 students at UCF, there’s a great opportunity to own rental properties.
Maitland, FL – One of the oldest cities in Central Florida, Maitland is ripe with history, a perfect place to call home for families and history buffs alike. But, this community isn’t resting on its laurels. Home to EA Sports, the RDV Sportsplex, Maitland Art Center, revitalized Eatonville, and the Enzian Theater, host of the Florida Film Festival, Maitland has a lot going on … and even more in the works.
