Wonderful and safe area to live, but very strict on certain rules that don't really matter. There is plenty to do around Heathrow, such as the movie theater and eateries located in the plaza outside the main gates. Heathrow is also very close in proximity to downtown Sanford which offers sight seeing and great food.

Our weather is very Bipolar here, one second it will be pouring rain and the next very sunny. We don't really have much of a difference in seasons, the leaves do turn color in the fall, and it gets somewhat cold in the winter. Summer is a very hot season but we have the beaches to cool us off. I have only really encountered one hurricane here and there are not many natural disasters. There are frequent thunderstorms so I always keep my umbrella in my car! Its frustrating that the weather cant make up its min because it makes it hard to make plans for the day.
We definitely senses the strong sense of community here when within weeks we were welcomed to join the weekend Fall Festival. Weeks later there was an Arts Festival and a Winter Festival after that. During Halloween, one of the local eateries hosted a block party. In the community we live in, Pure Living Heathrow, there are events held regularly and many residents express their enjoyment of the community's events.
