Real Location

Lake County represents ‘the other half’ of Orlando, with untouched natural resources, historic downtowns and award-winning sports facilities, all within a short driving distance of theme parks and major airports.

While Lake County may not boast the largest skyscraper or grandest mall, its close proximity to coastal beaches and Orlando-area businesses and attractions make it a perfect locale for those seeking a quieter and more affordable way of life, without being too far from big-city amenities.

From the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts to the Amway Center to the recently renovated Camping World Stadium, world-class arts, culture and entertainment surround the area.

Lake County is just 35 minutes from downtown Orlando, ranked in the top 10 largest cities in the U.S. for infrastructure.

The metro-Orlando area, including Lake County, has a multitude of sports and recreation options with more than 100 top-rated golf courses, walking and cycling trails and triathlon-certified training at the National Training Center in Clermont.

If you prefer to watch sports, rather than play them, it’s just a short drive to cheer on the NBA’s Orlando Magic or join Orlando's most passionate fan base for an Orlando City Lions MLS game.
