5 Actually Great Neighborhoods in Orlando
Orlando is filled with things to do and places to see. It’s a fun place to visit, but what about living there? We’ve sifted through all the rubbish, and came up with 5 actually great neighborhoods in Orlando.
- Winter Park. This city is the “old money” of all neighborhoods in Orlando. It was supposedly created for the northern snowbirds (greatamericancountry.com). Spanish moss and cobblestone line this neighborhood. Outside of being known for its money, Winter Park is known for the best farmers markets and bistros around!
- College Park. This city got its’ name from naming the streets after higher education (Harvard, Yale, Princeton, etc.). College Park is a host for many lakes and is a very walkable location. It is in close distance to the Orlando Science Center & Orlando Shakespeare Theater.
- Lake Nona. What’s great about this neighborhood is that it has a range of homes that can suit different budgets. Tavistock Cup is held here every year and is a golfing beauty. Outside of golf, Lake Nona is building up its technology and science crowd with the new construction of a science and technology office park (greatamericancountry.com). If you travel a lot, this neighborhood might serve you well, as it is close to Orlando International Airport.
- Loch Haven Park. If you like culture, this is it for you. Loch Haven is known for its culture because it’s had such a rich history. Attractions include Orlando Science Center, the Orlando Museum of Art, the Loch Haven Community Center, the Orlando Shakespeare Theater, and the Mennello Museum of American Art (movoto.com).
- Celebration. This is another very walkable part of Orlando. It has multiple places to eat and its own Town Center. They take advantage of the neighborliness by throwing events every year that bring everyone together. From the Great American Pie festival to Fall & Christmas events that feature fake falling leaves and artificial snow, Celebration knows how to throw a celebration.
