Hi all, we are moving to Leesburg, Fl area. My husband just got a job there. I have my in-laws with me and a 6 month old son. I am just looking for a nice area between Leesburg and Orlando. We are from India, so would like to move to closer to indian community, as my in-laws dont speak engligh. Please advise. Thank you

There is no Indian community anywhere around here that I'm aware of. I know one Asian Indian couple in all of Central Florida. When I lived in NJ I knew 100 of them. I think you're going to be in for a pretty big shock.

I see indians around, but there isnt one section or neighborhood where they all live. But good areas between Orlando and Leesburg would be Apopka, Eustis, Clermont

Thank you for your input, so according to you, what area has most indians? Leesburg, Apopka, Eustis or Clermont? This is a very serious thing for me and my family.

From what I know, all the Indian professionals in the Leesburg area live in Ocala, there is an Indian cultural center here, as well as several Indian groceries.
I know that doesnt help you, but how about posting a thread in the Orlando forum? I would think there would be a sizable Indian population there, they might have suggestions? I know there are quite a few groceries, and scores of restaurants in Orlando.
The area between Leesburg and Orlando has a lot of retirees.
Wish I could help more.......

The Asian groceries in Orlando are primarily Vietnamese (there is a decent Vietnamese community) and generic Asian. The only IndoPak groceriess I know of are in a really crappy area on OBT that no one in their right mind would want to live near. There is also one near Disney, but it's in an area that primarily caters to tourists.

The only Indian restaurant in Clermont closed a few months ago, and there used to be one in Winter Garden, but that closed a couple of years ago. So that tells you how few Asian indians there are around here.

I will ask my Asian Indian neighbors if they know of any area where there is a particularly concentrated number of Indians, but I know that their friends who I've met are scattered all over the greater Orlando area.

Ramila,

Since your husband's job is in Leesburg, and the only Indian area so far has been Ocala, you may want to consider living between Leesburg and Ocala.

You have not stated your reasons to be closer to Orlando, but if it for the occasional visit there for Disney, etc, your quality of life may be better, since community is important to you, living between Leesburg and Ocala.

Perhaps the best thing to do is to have a family talk, discussing what is important to you......how long will your husband be willing to commute, etc, etc.

If you can, visit the entire area so you can get a feel for your future.

Frank

Thank you all!! So, what I can get is Ocala and closer to Orlando are the areas for me. My in-laws came from India and they live with us now, they like to stay within indian community for cultural activities. My husband has two options, to work in Orlando or to work in Leesburg. What is the difference between lifestyles? I am sorry, I have never been to Florida, so I am asking these type of questions. Once again, I thank you all.
