Lake Mary

 

Welcome to Lake Mary

A well balanced life in scenic, sunny central Florida.

Twenty miles north of downtown Orlando lies Lake Mary, a perfectly balanced mix for its residents to live, work and play in the heart of the Sunshine State. Known for its exquisite restaurants, high end shopping, and other prominent local businesses, Lake Mary residents dwell within abodes built in traditional Floridian style featuring Spanish, Mediterranean, and modern coastal influences. With the Atlantic coast just forty minutes away, this well planned community enjoys a low crime rate, close proximity to world famous parks, and warm, enjoyable weather 12 months a year.
 
Originally a village consisting of just two tiny settlements, Lake Mary was an agricultural community of orange growers and lumbermen. Further development continued into the 20th century, with the town eventually being named as one of Money’s best places to live in 2007. Today, the City of Lakes is a hotspot for trendy eateries, cafes, bars, shopping and outdoor activities in a tropical paradise.

What to Love

  • Lake Mary is newer than many other suburban communities in the Orlando area
  • Highly rated shopping, dining, and schools are abundant
  • Residents appreciate close proximity to Orlando’s many world famous theme parks, without being centered in the midst of the action every day 

Local Lifestyle

Lake Mary is quiet and scenic, yet convenient. Residents enjoy a high number of parks, lakes, and golf courses, balanced by several urban amenities and a location adjacent to many major highways and thoroughfares. A variety of trendy condos, luxurious townhouses, and master planned communities are great places for folks from all walks of life to call home. Thriving businesses, high performing schools, and a vibrant social scene have made this central Florida suburb one of the state’s most desirable places to call home.

Dining, Entertainment, and Shopping

With a diverse array of young professionals, families, and those in their golden ages, Lake Mary is home to a number of locally owned businesses with something for everyone. Outdoor recreation, wine tasting, and exotic cuisine are just a few favorite ways to spend free time. 
 
NewCity Coffee Co., located in the heart of Lake Mary, is a morning favorite among locals. Known for comforting breakfast classics, some of their top sellers include breakfast sandwiches, burritos, and omelets, paired with a variety of perfected caffeinated classics. 
 
Fresh, Floridian seafood is provided for residents of Lake Mary seven days a week at Lighthouse Seafood. An avid supporter of local fishers, Lighthouse Seafood sells only the best fish and shellfish from the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico. Their expanded market now sells lunch and dinner, with dishes like clam chowder, crabcakes, fish tacos, and assorted baskets.
 
Asian fusion tacos featuring these same fresh ingredients can be found at Viet Nomz. Modern takes on traditional Vietnamese street food are popular with locals such as banh mi, pho, and tacos.
 
A favorite way to stay entertained in sunny, central Florida is golf, and Heathrow Country Club is one of the best rated courses in town. In addition to the challenging 18 hole course often frequented by many PGA Tour players, Heathrow also features an athletic club, tennis, swimming, and several dining facilities. 
 
Lake Mary is plentiful with trendy boutiques and shops, with 4th & Ocean being one of the most popular. Located alongside many sibling companies in their 4th Street plaza, 4th & Ocean is popular among locals for their beachy, bohemian themed apparel and accessories, perfect for the Floridian lifestyle.
 

Things To Do

Every Saturday in the center of town, locals descend upon the Lake Mary Farmers’ Market for fresh produce, plants, baked goods, honey, and handmade crafts. More fun is to be had in the great outdoors at one of Lake Mary’s several parks or preserves. Liberty Park is a favored option among locals for its grills, trails, disc golf, fishing, and quiet scenery. Several parks play host to local events such as wine and art shows, holiday celebrations, and outdoor theater performances.
 

Schools

Lake Mary is well known for its top performing schools. A few of these include: 
 
  • Heathrow Elementary School, prekindergarten to 5th grade; HES has consistently ranked in the top 5% of Florida elementary schools with regard to state testing scores
  • Greenwood Lake Middle School, grades 6 to 8; GLMS features a variety of clubs including athletic teams, student government, anti bullying initiatives, and many more
  • Lake Mary High School, grades 9 to12; LMHS boasts a 98% graduation rate, over 40 student organizations, and over 30 different advanced placement courses
