Located about 30 minutes north of downtown Orlando and 45 minutes west of Daytona Beach, Lake Mary has a high standard of living that has earned it a #4 national ranking in a recent Money Magazine survey of “Best Places to Live”–and the town ranked #1 within the state of Florida.
LAKE MARY HOTEL DEALS
Although Lake Mary is part of the I-4 corridor, it manages to avoid some of the congestion that the Interstate brings to downtown Orlando. Most importantly, Lake Mary has its own employers in the immediate area, such as the American Automobile Association (AAA) and a branch of Siemens Communications, which means that many residents don’t have to commute far to their jobs.
People usually move to Lake Mary for the well-planned residential communities and so their children can benefit from the highly ranked schools in Seminole County. An added benefit is that the Timacuan Golf and Country Cub is right in the center of town, and is considered to be one of the best golf courses in the state.
For nature lovers, Lake Mary offers the Cross Seminole Trail and The Florida National Scenic Trail for running, walking and cycling. And if all of that natural beauty isn’t enough residents and visitors alike can enjoy the Farmer’s Market in front of the Lake Mary City Hall every Saturday from 8:30 a.m. Until 1:30 p.m., with plenty of locally grown fruits and vegetables and organic foodstuffs.
With Lake Mary’s location between Daytona Beach and Orlando, a trip to the beach or the attractions is less than an hour away, which makes Lake Mary an ideal location to visit, in addition to being one of the best places to live in the United States.
