Lake Nona is a great place to live close to everything you need, YMCA, shopping, all new schools, golf out the waaazoo, New med school, Nemors hospital, airport, half hour to the beach, parks, lakes, wild deer and other wild life, nice people and lots of money. Anything else you need to know? Just ask.

I get alot of people that love the Lake Nona area. For many of the reasons mentioned above with the "medical city" going in, the upscale Lake Nona Golf course, along with a few other courses in the area. Great schools (pending new high school being built), not too much traffic in the area with easy access to the 528 and the 417 that will take you directly to the airport, florida mall, international drive, waterford lakes, the tech corridor, and even disney.

I see a few couples that recently graduated moving there that are in the medical field. Some families that work at UCF's hospitality school, and many that work at the airport. Even a few Space Coast people check out Lake Nona. I imagine when all the medical buildings are completed there will be even more.

Lake Nona is a place on the move. a beautiful upscale community that is growing at every turn. Being to the East of the airport is is freed from the flight paths. As mentioned by others there are some spectaculr medical facilities planned for the area and I suspect it will become the residence for many of those that work there. Presently there is a lack of some stores but the area is adding more each month. In time it will have all the amenities found in other parts of the city. Being so close to the 528 ithe area does lend itself to anyone that travels as the airport is so close. As Narcoossee expands the passage in and out will be much improved. Access to the 417 makes disney to Lake Mary a pretty easy jaunt. Probably the worse thing that can be said is about the schools as they are not yet the quality of the ones found in Oviedo or Winter Park. All in time.

I agree with the rest of the people here, I live near Lake Nona and the place is "booming". The new UCF Medical School is opening up in that area (first medical school in Central Florida) also new Valencia CC will be opening up.

Nice neighborhoods are around the area and also near the interstate to go to main Orlando and other places.

I recommend for you to move there.
