From its diverse downtown scenery to its world-famous theme parks, Orlando gives home buyers every reason to love where they live—at least for a few weeks of the year!
The Happiest Place on Earth™ speaks for itself, doesn’t it?
9 (nine!) world-class theme parks are seated within 90 minutes of Orlando’s downtown: Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure, Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, SeaWorld, Busch Gardens and Legoland Florida!
Pack those suitcases. Vacation awaits!
Not only is Downtown Orlando home to amazing restaurants, cafes, and bistros, but it’s also home to world-famous CityWalk and Disney Springs! Concerts at the House of Blues, Ghiradelli Chocolate treats, and outdoor music performances can be found on any night.
If you’re a golf enthusiast, you may have just arrived in paradise. With over 50 golf courses spread throughout the Greater Orlando area, you’re never more than a few miles from a full day of 18 rounds, cool breeze, and endless sunshine. Be sure to pack those clubs.
Cool Water Parks
Looking to grab some shade and escape the Florida sun during the summer months? Orlando’s variety of water parks are open all year long. With 5 nationally-renowned parks within a 90-minute drive from Orlando’s core, no water park trip will ever grow old. Mix it up!
If water parks aren’t your thing, Orlando has other water activities to try—one of which might be Orlando’s best-kept secret. Kayak or canoe along the Wekiva river, home to tons of Florida wildlife. With picturesque views lining the river, there’s plenty to see in one of the state’s most pleasant preserves. Once you’re done, stop by one of Florida’s favorite bars for a cool drink!
With over 95% of Orlando’s days covered in rays of Florida sunshine, it’s fair to say that nearly every day is a beautiful day in Orlando. The city’s month-by-month average temperatures rarely eclipse 88º in the summer and almost never drop below 55º in the winter.
Orlando’s 100+ parks and 21 community recreation centers also offer residents plenty of family options.
Hot Real Estate Market
As one of the fastest-growing cities in the country, Orlando has been a hotbed for interested home buyers since 2010. The city’s affordable home prices, very reasonable cost of living and quaint, quiet neighborhoods create its urban paradise vibe—all while offering elements of a more laid-back, residential lifestyle.
Some of the city’s up-and-coming residential areas include Winter Park, College Park and Celebration, to name a few. A 45-mile drive to the beach, and a short highway drive from both Stetson University and the University of Central Florida certainly isn’t a tough sell.
Orlando continues to stand out as one of the country’s top vacation destinations. Great weather, a great lifestyle, and plenty of city activity like International Drive, popular restaurants, FunSpot and WonderWorks keep residents happy and healthy all year long!
