Altamonte Springs Reviews

76 reviews
All Categories
Altamonte springs is in the middle of everything so the location itself is great. The traffic however I could do without. Everything you need is in the area, walmart, whole foods, publix's galore! We even have Target here. There are so many food choices as well, Italian, Mexican, Mediterranean, you name it we have it! You literally do not need to leave Altamonte for anything. There is not much to do in the nighttime however, but we are only 20 minutes away from downtown so that's not too bad. Houses in Altamonte are so expensive but I can see why, we have EVERYTHING! There's so many lights in Altamonte that cause a bunch of traffic so the commute time really sucks, but when you live in the heart of everything its what you should expect. Altamonte springs has some very good schools and Seminole county is one of the best counties in Florida for schools. All in all I would NEVER leave Altamonte even if the house are way cheaper on the other side of the county line no thanks!
Review Altamonte Springs
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.
