'The City Beautiful' is perhaps best known as the theme park capital of the world but as locals are quick to point out, there's a lot more to Orlando than its theme parks. For a city that's recently been ranked first by Forbes in "Top 10 Cities for Job Growth," it comes as no surprise that its major employers include Walt Disney Company, Comcast Corporation and Best Buy. It is also a top residential city and boasts a vibrant real estate scene.
With prices ranging from the mid-100s to the low 1200s, buyers are presented with a wide array of homes, from bungalows and single-family homes to luxury homes, to townhomes and condos. Leading builders like Taylor Morrison, Ashton Woods Homes and Ryan Homes have set up shop here. Typically, buyers who are on a tight budget can choose from the hundreds of 2 and 3 bedroom townhomes and condos featured in NewHomeSource. Many of the high-end options include two-story single family homes with floor coverage of up to 4900 square-foot. Perfect for large families, these 4 and 5 bedroom homes feature spacious open floor plans with the latest energy saving appliances and beautiful outdoor living areas.
Speaking of outdoors, if you love nothing more than to spend time in the great outdoors with the family or just have a wild side, O-Town can rival any city in the world for nature's most impressive wildlife. With outdoor temperatures rarely getting cold, there's no excuse not to enjoy outdoor activities. If a trip to Sea World doesn't satisfy your craving for huge aquatic creatures, hire a canoe and discover some local ones for yourself in the Everglades nearby. Wekiwa Springs is a well-kept local secret that offers a spectacular day out for the family. Here, you can enjoy picturesque Florida surroundings as you sauna down the river on a kayak; or cook up some food as the kids while away the day in Wekiwa's turquoise spring waters. The city has become a haven for artists and performers alike. If this is your thing, then pay a visit to O-Town's cultural corridor; an 8-mile stretch of galleries, museums and performance centers to compliment the more scholarly excursionists.
