I’ve helped quite a few people relocate here from other parts of the country. They all seem to fall in love with the shops, restaurants, walking trails, and all that Lake Nona has to offer.
It has certainly grown by leaps and bounds and has been amazing to witness. As a lifelong Orlando, Florida resident, I’ve never seen anything like it. Back in 2000, there were approximately 1,500 residents and according to the census of 2015, it had grown to OVER 50,000 residents!! So that tells you a lot!
Lake Nona is known for its forward thinking when it comes to technology and to connecting the residents.
By offering internet speeds 200 times faster than the average U.S. connection, it led to Cisco’s designation of Lake Nona as one of only nine Iconic Smart + Connected communities in the world and the first in the nation. LakeNona.com
One other thing that Lake Nona is famous for is the Lake Nona Medical City. It is an actual landmark in the Orlando area and provides research, education, as well as medical care. It also is quite a job engine for the area’s residents.
A lot of people who relocate to Lake Nona are either in the tech field or the medical field. Jobs are abundant in those two areas, but let’s not stop there. Let’s talk about the shops and the restaurants in the area.
There is the Lake Nona Town Center which is a shopping and entertainment destination for all. There are department stores, retail shops, as well as trendy boutiques. It really is a shopper’s dream!
The accommodations offered are also plentiful. There are the following commercial establishments to stay at –
