As much as I love living near the Magic Kingdom here in Florida, I absolutely love hiding away in Casselberry. This little city is just north of Orlando and allows me to access the city life and all the attractions in this region, then get away from all the tourists in my quiet neighborhood.
Living in Casselberry is paradise because I am in the middle of the Sunshine State, which means I can be at either coast and their amazing beaches, in an hour in each direction. If you love the outdoors, the best areas are the countless large lakes that surround Casselberry.
Shopping is amazing in Casselberry, you can hit the Altamonte Springs Mall or visit a number of the premium outlet malls that are along Interstate 4. There is plenty to do within 15 minutes of my house, from Universal Studios, SeaWorld, the Orlando Eye Ferris Wheel, the water parks, and of course the four parks that make up the Magic Kingdom.
