Lake Mary has a number of outstanding attributes to recommend it, the beautiful natural scenery being just one of them. Lake Mary is also one of the fastest growing locations in the State of Florida, with plenty of space for both commercial and residential development.

Though a full 18 miles north of Orlando, which makes trips to the downtown area inconvenient for most, Lake Mary still offers plenty for the residents to see and do (without the city traffic!).
The Parks and Recreation Dept. is especially pro-active in offering clubs, classes, activities, and events for both children and adults throughout the year.
There are even special classes and social gatherings tailored specifically to meet the needs of active seniors. For something a little more educational, you can stop by the Frank Evans Museum of History.
Oh, and do we need to add that there’s plenty of fishing in Lake Mary?
As we noted above, the low crime rate makes Lake Mary one of the safest places to raise a family in all of Florida.
