I love that everything is near by. There is a mall 10 minutes away. Pharmacies are located really close by. the amount of places to eat are phenomenal. Most importantly, I love being less than 10 minutes away from the beach. Seminole, FL is the place to be!

I have been enrolled in two, going on three Seminole County affiliated schools within my years of living in Florida. Millennium Middle and Seminole High School are two schools that have prepared me adequately to be successful in the future.
It's a beautiful relaxed city. It is close to the beach, it has a great downtown night-life; regardless of whether you want to club or find a nice little dance location, you'll find one. I've loved my decision of moving here.
