      I love living in Altamonte Springs, Florida. This place has been home to me for more than 40 years. We are so close to the Orlando area that I can visit the major theme parks anytime I want. We are a bit smaller than the Kissimmee area, with close to forty-one thousand people living here. As you can imagine, we deal with the same things that most big, tourist-laden cities do. We have congestion and plenty of tourists milling about, but we do have so much to do. I can never say that I am bored living here. The sky is the limit for the locals.

      Did I mention the theme parks? Well, I am sure I did, but it is something that you just can't overlook. The fact that you can travel just a few minutes and be at some of the world's best entertainment cannot be ignored. If you love the nightlife, then this place is one happening spot for you. We have more clubs than you could ever visit in a month's time. Then there's the excellent shopping. I frequent the parks around here because they are so beautiful nearly all year round. You simply must visit the Hermits Trail & Turnbull Ave or the Lake Lotus Nature Park. Both are excellent for bird watching or for spending a day out in the sunshine.

      The fourth of July is my favorite time of year around here. I love the Red, Hot, & Boom celebration that is put on by the city every year. For one stop shopping, you must head over to the Altamonte Mall. There are more than 160 stores inside this venue and some for the budget shopper too. Orlando is about a 30-minute drive, and the beaches are within an hour and a half drive. So to sum up this city, it is one awesome place to live.
