Usually the neighborhoods right off colonial arent the best because Colonial is a very busy road but they aren't that bad. Do you have kids? there are a lot of nice neighborhoods that are near UCF though... what subdivision are you looking at?

The UCF area is really closer to Oviedo - lots of great neighborhoods there. Also, if you go a few minutes south, you will find many more neighborhoods of varying ages surrounding this area. Waterford Lakes is a HUGE subdivision that has a large variety of homes, also close is Eastwood, Timber Springs, Stoneybrooke East and many others. Note that depending on where you choose to live, you will be in either Orange County (Orlando) or Seminole County (Oviedo/Sanford).

Many high tech/computer jobs are around the uinversity area. Between Alafaya and the 417 is an area known as the Quadrangle, slightly north of University Blvd on Alafaya is Seimens, also near is Lockheed Martin and a number of other employers that involve computer software/engineering.

Also there are a gang of nice houses on Curry Ford which are minutes away from UCF.

I love East Orlando.

I looked over near UCF when we were shopping for a home. There seemed to be some very nice homes at affordable prices.

I would go around the Waterford Lakes area and Avalon Park, some beautiful homes and excellent schools in that area. Also close to the Waterford Lakes Town Center shooping center. If you go there I recommend Smoky Bones BBQ, ahh so many memories there.

Another great place to take the kids if you have any is Firkin and Kegler on Waterford Lakes Parkway and Woodbury Road. Its a bit pricy but it can be TONS of fun.

Waterford Lakes was my favorite part of town when I lived in Orlando, along with Hunters Creek in South Orlando

There's plenty of nice neighborhoods off of Curry Ford, mainly from Chickasaw to Alafaya. Chickasaw Trail has nice neighborhoods and Vista Lakes is nice, Andover Lakes is nice, Cypress Springs is nice. My mom lives in a neighborhood called Chickasaw Trails off of South Chickasaw near Curry Ford and her neighborhood is very nice, well kept with a reasonable HOA fee and the homes are about 20 years old and established, the lots are very large in comparison to the brand new neighborhoods, if you like a larger lot. There's a nice house on a beautiful cul de sac down the street right now that has a pool that says "Bank Owned, make an offer today." I would go for it myself if I had the finances.
