Lake MaryLake Mary is the Orlando suburb that is perfectly positioned between the beauty of the natural world and the hubbub of one of the world’s biggest tourist destinations. It’s a dozen-ish miles north of Orlando proper on the interstate, so you’d expect it to be a bedroom community. Instead, it’s the headquarters of several multinational corporations, the locus of local television and radio companies, and has a vibrant downtown that makes venturing out a largely voluntary decision. Lake Mary is lovely, with well-planned communities of stately homes built around lakes, some upscale golf communities, and condos and townhomes along curving, tree-lined streets. Commutes, if you’re not in the infamous Orlando rush hours, are effortless, and you can even travel further afield from the close-by Sanford Airport without the hassle of Orlando’s giant MCO — though that airport is surprisingly easy to access, as well.
