Called the Historic Waterfront Gateway City, Sanford is situated on the southern side of Lake Monroe, in the heart of Seminole county. Whether it’s upscale shopping and dining you seek, the opportunity to fully explore the Central Florida Zoo and Botanical Gardens, nights out at the gallery, expansive waterfront views, or a diverse neighborhood close to the Sanford International Airport, Sanford has something for everyone.
Over 53,000 people call Sanford home. To show that its size does not prohibit Sanford from being Earth-conscious and energy aware, there are 5 electric car-charging stations located throughout the city. Sanford is, as of now, the only Central Florida city to take this initiative towards curbing reliance on traditional oil and gas reserves. Furthermore, to showcase the level of community involvement, Sanford launched a program entitled Imagine Sanford in 2012 that was designed to honor the idea that “Together we can choose a future that fits our shared values.” Imagine Sanford is a community-based initiative wherein all Sanford residents have the opportunity to log-in to an online forum where they can submit ideas for the future development and enhancement of Sanford, and vote on what improvements they think will serve the city best. In Sanford, you have the opportunity to discuss the projects and policies that will affect your community’s future from the comfort of your own home.
Sanford is home to a burgeoning theater and arts community, with cultural events being held throughout the month in prime Historic Downtown Sanford. Downtown Sanford is currently the travel destination for over 50,000 people annually, solely for the activities and performances of the Wayne Densch Performing Arts Center. If you’re more interested in perusing the aisle of a fancy boutique, just west of Downtown is one of Central Florida’s largest malls. There are also various outlets for active people seeking outdoor entertainment, including boating access to Lake Monroe and the St. Johns River via the Port of Sanford marinas.
From parks and playgrounds to the Central Florida Zoo and the top-rated Seminole School System (voted in the top10% of the nation every year since 1992), Sanford is an educational, distinct place in which to raise your children.
Regardless of the housing range you’re interested in, the amenities you prefer, or the activities you most enjoy, there’s a neighborhood in Sanford that can accommodate your needs.
