Seminole County - Florida's Natural Choice

By
Real Estate Agent with Marc It Sold!

wekiva riverSeminole County is situated between Orlando's Central Business District, the Theme Parks and the Volusia beaches on the east coast.  The county can't be beat for accessibility to the best that Central Florida has to offer.

Seminole County is one of the fastest growing counties in Florida.  It is a collection of comfortable bedroom communities with housing ranging in price from very affordable to among the most expensive in the area. 

Seminole County has carefully protected its natural resources.  These include Lake Monroe and the scenic St. John's River, with its alligators and moss-draped cypress trees; Wekiva Springs State Park and the Central Florida Zoological Park, not to mention the many large lakes that dot the county.  There are parks that offer jogging trails, athletic fields, even a pet park and many miles of trails throughout the county.

Seminole County is the home of the Orlando-Sanford International Airport and the Amtrak Auto Train which originates in Lorton, VA. 

The many cities of Seminole County include:

Altamonte Springs

Casselberry

Lake Mary

Longwood

Oviedo

Sanford

Winter Springs

It sounds beautiful...but I imagine the waterlife on the river may be a bit intimidating!  Great background information for those interesting in moving to Seminole County!

Marc, what a wonderful write up on Seminole County. I've actually worked for the County since November 1983 and will soon retire. Seminole County is a great place to live, work and play. The only thing I would add would be Seminole State College which now offers many four year degree programs with multiple locations and the I4 corridor with many IT companies. Great job on the blog. Have a great day!
