Master planned area, family friendly. We moved to this area couple of years ago after exhaustive investigation of all pros and cons. Schools were a major driver as we consider it is the first sign that people living around prioritize or take responsibility on education and with good education comes the rest.

We have lived in horizon west for almost 4 years, we love it! Great safe location in Central Florida!
I've never been a big fan of the Orlando area, but I have found a haven in the Windermere/Winter Garden area. It's so family oriented here and there's so many little spots around where you can always count on seeing familiar friendly faces and just overall good community fellowship happening. I would definitely say this is one of the better small towns in the country. Downtown Winter Garden in particular feels like a small town right out of the movies. I think this area is going to continue to grow and expand into something really impressive. I would really suggest this area to anyone.
