As we all know, Orlando, FL is a huge vacation destination for many. In fact, 74 million people visited Orlando last year, keeping its place as the top U.S. destination. Orlando is an awesome place to visit for so many reasons, the sunny weather, proximity to beaches, cruise ports, SeaWorld, Universal Studios Orlando, and most importantly-Walt Disney World!

Because of all the city has to offer, families often come and stay for an extended period of time, and rather than squeezing their families into a hotel room for weeks, more and more families are renting homes and condos short-term either through Airbnb or other vacation rental websites. A lot of these homes are in residential neighborhoods, often in areas that are within a short distance to the theme parks.

So, what does this mean for the residents of these neighborhoods? You’ll see a lot of families coming and going all year long. While this may not bother some residents in the least, there are, on the other hand, those who are looking for a sense of community, to know their neighbors, and to establish some familiarity for their kiddos. Here is your resource for areas of Orlando with the most permanent residents.

As a proud Orlando native, helping others find their place to call home sweet home in this magical city has been an absolute blast and privilege. I earned my BA in Psychology with a minor in Sociology from the University of North Florida in 2017, however, after graduating, I realized my true passion has always been with homes and interior design. A couple of years later, and here I am--one of your Magical Moves Realtors! I truly have the best job in the world. In my spare time, I am a big-time baker, crime docs binge-watcher, and homebody.

Three weeks ago I closed on my new-build home and moved to Clermont from Lake Nona. Could two neighborhoods be more different? Lake Nona is known for its futurism: Think self-driving shuttles, a shipping-container food court, and a 100-court tennis association. Lake Nona is unique beyond all means. The suburb was designed with health and…
