We are close to OIA - about 15 minutes. Check out the Tivoli Woods developments - Sanctuary, Oak Crest and Bella Vista.

Downtown Orlando - 20 minutes
Waterford Lakes Shopping - 15 minutes
Grocery, Home Depot, Drug Stores - 10 minutes
Cruise Terminals - 45 minutes
Cocoa Beach - 50 minutes

Yeah, it's convenient. :-)

Not really, it's 26 miles which equates to around 30 minutes or less on the 417/528 (65 mph speed limit, average speed around 70) which hardly ever has slowdowns or delays. One could easily spend 30 minutes or more from any of the others moving from stop light to stop light. Oviedo also doesn't have the over-development of Dr Phillips or Hunters Creek. Lake Nona isn't there yet but will be soon.

Add in the price of tolls and gas costs, and it starts to become significant, living that far away. You are driving 52 miles round trip every time.

I wouldn't call Dr Phillips over-developed. It's actually got a number of amenities available and is close to everything
