I love this area! In the past I have lived in New York and northern Florida. For me, central Florida is the perfect blend of that city life and the relaxing, southern atmosphere of Florida. New things are being built around me every day, so there is constant growth.

Living in Windermere is great! It's safe and there's lots of stuff to do since it is right next to Orlando! The weather is warm and perfect. I would love to live here for most of my life because it's easy to travel and this area has everything. It will keep improving because this area likes to stay up to date. It's a good area to live in when you retire too!
Everything that you need is within short driving distance and the area, as well as the stores themselves, are very well kept. The clientele are of a higher end, and therefore high-end, well-made products are usually stocked. The restaurants generally leave something to be desired. There are some very good high-end places to eat, but on the lower end or mid-range there are only fast food joints and some mediocre chain restaurants. Other than that, I really can't see much to complain about.
