You will enjoy Lake Mary's residential pace

Lake Mary is a quiet little town approximately 20 miles north of Orlando. Across the highway several new office parks have been built, and lately it has not been quite a sleepy as before - there are several hotels and restaurants. Chances are Lake Mary will not be a vacation destination - but it sure is a nice place to come home to after vacation.

Living in Florida means the possibility of hurricanes from June to November. Fortunately the storms seldom come through Orlando, but in 2004 three of them came across - fortunately Ivan skipped us. Ivan was by far the strongest storm and the first time in 24 years since we live in the area that we boarded up the windows.

The area has grown and now offers several hotels, stores, and restaurants.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:A slower area with easy access to nature and hiking trails
  • Cons:It is about 35 miles from the parks - but this is good!
  • In a nutshell:A wonderful escape between the parks and the beaches

    Lake Mary does sound nice, especially when it is SO COLD here in Missouri! Went to Florida only once & was amazed at everything I saw & didn't expect to be...
