I posted previously asking for advice about an area between Melbourne and Orlando and now I'm looking between Gainesville and Orlando(winter park)for a possible opportunity. Wondering what area is recommended that's halfway between the two. I don't mind a commute and i am with an hour drive. I have a toddler so somewhere family friendly and diverse would be a plus thanks

Between Gainesville and Orlando is getting into "retirement-ville." You're not going to find many young or active families here as it's mostly retired seniors in 55+ communities. Expect to get stuck behind a Buick or Lincoln going 15 under the speed limit frequently.

This area also is much more "southern" than Orlando and can get downright redneck in some places, especially the farther out in the country you go.

The Villages and the newer parts of Wildwood are nice and have plenty of shopping and dining options (mostly all chains), but again, mostly seniors and retirement communities.

thank you, I will look at wildwood. My mom will probably be coming too so that will be great for her, since she's retired so she'll have plenty to do.
