Nice area, unusual for Florida because it has alot of rolling hills. Looks more like California than what you'd expect to find in Florida. Recently going through a development boom. Drawback is that it is quite a distance from Orlando and the rest of the core if that's where you plan on working.

I wouldn't be the best person to ask but it shouldn't be too bad because there are multiple routes you can take. I would say about 25 minutes to Disney area and slightly longer to Universal.

Took me 35 minutes to get downtown everyday and 35 minutes to get to Disney when I've gone. Easy drives though.

It depends on what part of Clermont. There are parts that are a 15 minute drive to Disney but 50 to Universal and others that are 20 minutes to Universal but 45 to Disney.

I live around Forrest city area, offered positions in Dr. Phillips and Clermont, the latest was my choice. Longer distance but so much more pleasant commuting. Depending on what time I leave, it usually take me 30-45 minutes with a toll fee of $1.25 each way and luckily my job is not a 9-5.

not sure what part of Clermont yet, It will be an apartment though.
But if my best friend moves down with me, we will probably move to the Dr Phillips area.
I read how nice that is too. I am learning on here what to avoid.
