ORLANDO FLORIDA NEIGHBORHOODS
Orlando is more than Disney. Like any city, we have a little bit of everything. With nearby beaches, golf courses, local farmers markets we have a small town charm in the midst of one the famous spots to visit in the world. Orlando is roughly divided into four quadrants defined by Interstate 4 (north-south) and Colonial Drive/SR 50 (east-west).
The theme parks and attractions, like Universal Studios and Disney World are generally in the southwest quadrant about 20 miles from the city center while the dense International Drive hotel area abuts the southeast side of I-4.
The south and west sections, especially International Drive, Sand Lake/Dr. Phillips and Lake Buena Vista, are the Orlando neighborhoods where you’ll find the greatest concentration of hotels, restaurants, nightclubs, golf courses, and attractions. If you are looking to move to Orlando, Florida or live here and want to know about a different neighborhood or subdivision, there’s nothing like working with someone who lives here and knows the area – and I happen to know someone. That would be me – Jacob McAfee. I can lead you to the best neighborhoods for you based on what you’re looking for… big yard, pool, golf course, school districts, after-school activities, senior living, gated community, community center? Let me know your wish list when we talk.
There are gated communities, homes on traditional streets, historic buildings, downtown and new town centers. Orlando’s West Orange County alone has nearly 200 lakes, more than 50 parks with over 22 miles of the West Orange Trail and 20 golf courses, public, private, and restricted. Whether you’re a current resident or thinking of making Orlando your home, take some time to look around. There’s always something to discover in Orlando.
