SO MUCH TO DO IN AND AROUND ORLANDO!
There are almost 100 miles of soft, sandy beaches from Daytona to Melbourne, all within a one hour drive of Orlando. Or are you in town for a rocket launch from Cape Canaveral? Maybe you plan to watch NASCAR racing at Daytona Motor Speedway? Yep, both less than an hour’s drive! And all the attractions you’ve heard about for years… Disney World’s Magic Kingdom, Epcot or Animal Kingdom; or maybe Universal Studios or its Islands of Adventure; or perhaps Seaworld, Discovery Cove or Aquatica. But those are only the beginning because there are many, many more “Attractions”… all within 30 minutes!
Even Downtown Orlando has enough to keep you entertained: watch the professional Orlando City Soccer Club play in the brand new Orlando City Stadium, which is just a stone’s throw from where the Orlando Magic play NBA basketball in Amway Center… both right downtown. Want to sample a little nightlife? You can’t go wrong walking around Church Street Station (on Church Street, of course) where you’ll find several fine restaurants including Ceviche Tapas and The Rusty Spoon; some hopping night clubs (don’t miss Hamburger Mary’s… even if it is a little risque) and professional live performances at the Mad Cow Theatre! And that’s only a small sample of what you’ll find downtown!
But a visit to the City of Orlando wouldn’t be complete without attending a concert, ballet or live Broadway play at the mesmerizing Dr. Phillips Performing Arts Center, also in the downtown area, relatively new with multiple existing venues in operation and more under construction to make it one of the most striking live performance facilities in all of America!
Then just a few minutes drive up I-4E (it actually goes north through Orlando) will bring you to Loch Haven Park where you’ll find the Orlando Science Center, the Orlando Museum of Art and the wonderful Orlando Shakespeare Theatre (a personal favorite) and several other similar facilities that are sure to fill your day with wonder and culture. And jumping on I-4W towards the attractions area, you’ll find a long winding road called International Drive where you will find ALL THE ABOVE and a whole lot more. You have to give yourself a couple of days to experience everything you will find on “the I-Drive” and they’re adding more all the time!
The abundance of water in and around Orlando are perfect for relaxing, fishing, boating… or taking an airboat tour where they’ll always find alligators… your choice! But if a leisurely dinner cruise at dusk is your idea of a good time, then head on up to Sanford where you can cruise on Lake Monroe and for miles up the St. John’s river which is just as wild in many places as it was when it was first seen by Ponce de Leon in 1513! Here you’ll observe low hanging moss-covered branches and lots of other types of plant life in wetlands that are home to an unbelievable number of nocturnal critters that walk, slither, swim and fly… some right by you as you watch, all while you enjoy the sun setting in the west, perhaps with a beverage of your choice in your hand! Nice.
A week in Orlando is never enough and you’ll find yourself coming back again and again, if not actually moving here. The Greater Orlando area is now the 2nd fastest growing area in the entire U.S. that includes a robust economy and some of the lowest unemployment rates in the country! Mild weather year round MIGHT have something to do with that. How does 70 in the middle of winter sound to you? But bring your winter coats anyway because you’ll need to be prepared for those nippy temperatures at night when it dips into the 50’s! It’s fun to look around town during that time of year when locals are wearing their best furs and snow boots, and tourists are walking about in shorts and tank tops. To each their own! So enjoy your time in our fine city and…
WELCOME TO ORLANDO – THE CITY BEAUTIFUL!
If you are looking for the right person to help you buy or sell your property, you won't find anyone better than Dave. I could tell he was a Navy fly boy because he was always so precise and he documented everything! He really goes out of the way to explain things thoroughly so you never feel lost in the process. I was impressed by his range of knowledge - on just about anything - and was very satisfied with how he handled the transaction. He is a true professional with a positive "Can Do" attitude and I highly recommend him.
We weren't sure if we wanted to start over with a new home - and a new mortgage. But our home of 25 years was too big - with the kids gone. Plus, the upkeep was getting expensive and harder to do ourselves and we knew we were facing some major work. We shared that with Dave and in a few days he came back with a plan. We agreed to it and Dave helped us sell our old home and then buy a new construction home that had the gorgeous kitchen we always wanted... and we DON'T HAVE ANY MONTHLY PAYMENTS! Dave introduced us to a really nice mortgage lender he trusted who worked out the no payment mortgage and we were able to keep most of the equity proceeds! We highly recommend Dave, you won't find a better agent or person who truly understands what someone our age needs.
Hello! I’ve developed this website specifically for those that are planning a visit to Orlando and are looking for a Short Term Rental for a day, a week, a month or even longer! We can accommodate individuals and families that are here on vacation, business, or are relocating to Orlando and would prefer a home environment to live in – rather than a hotel – while they are here.
