Would like to hear about the area. We belong to the Y here, so we would like to know about it.

The Lake Nona Middle and High school we would like to know about (safety, too).

How far is it to say, city walk, UCF, a community college, and over to st petes beaches.

I would like just the feel of living there. We live now 20 min's to town in a subdivision. Our houses are further apart, and we like that. We have a HOA, but they pretty much stay out of what we do to our yard or home. Our snotty neighbors care more about that.

Anyone know how many dogs you can have? (we have dogs and we do not let them run (have a fenced in yard) or bark all night).

Just a general idea of what life is like. Restaurants, stuff for the kids to do (elem and middle). I homeschool my elem. ones.

The Lake Nona Y is in with Northlake Park Elementary School. I believe if you buy in Northlake Park that the Y is covered in your HOA fees (it's in ours, just don't know if it's true for all the different communities in NLP).

You're very close to medical city. I can get to the southern side of UCF in 20-25 minutes. The St Pete beaches are easy since you're right off the 417 via Narcoossee. I can do Tampa in < 90 minutes, not sure to the beach. The east beaches are very easy, though I like the west beaches better, too.

NLP is a great neighborhood with friendly neighbors. I don't know the dog limit, but I don't know anyone who keeps their dogs outside. I certainly know people with 2 dogs. The yards tend not to be huge here. If you're looking for more land for dogs, check out some homes down Moss Park Road.

There aren't a lot of restaurants quite yet, but there are some. If you go to the area on maps.google.com and ask to see restaurants, it'll show you. I think more will certainly be popping up as the area continues to grow.

The best thing about NLP is even in this down housing economy, it seems like homes are turning over very rapidly here. That's a good sign of a desirable neighborhood.

Lake Nona is a very nice area to move to, but alot of the properties will have a high HOA. It is close to everything.
