Altamonte Springs Reviews

69 reviews
All Categories
I love living in Altamonte Springs, there's diversity, a mall, and lots of great restaurants to eat at nearby. We're 30 minutes away from Orlando attractions and were close to the 408 turnpike and the I-4 exit. Traffic can be a problem at times so plan an extra 10 minutes to your trip time. Otherwise I think Altamonte Springs is a great community. We also have a park called Cranes Roost where you can find many live events happening on the weekends or walk around the beautiful lake, so many options!
Altamonte Springs is a great area! It is in a central location, in my opinion, close to Downtown Orlando and just 30 minutes to the closest beach (Daytona). Great restaurants, great areas to shop in, beautiful neighborhoods, and the schools are some of the best in the Central Florida area.
I was born and raised in the same house in Altamonte Springs so I can't truly compare it to other places. Regardless of this though, the neighborhood is really great, the houses are great, the location is really perfect, the worst thing to ever happen is a bear sighting in my hood. Also, Its in close distance to nearly everything! We have Target, 3 gas stations, a preschool, car wash, khols, two public parks, the mall, and publix, and more 10 mins or less away from us. The schools that I attended while living here were also really great. Everything is basically great! I just usually complain about the Florida heat, it's truly the only reason I would rather live anywhere else. Other than that, the convenience alone is what I would miss the most if I were to ever leave.
