Review of Windermere, Florida

Living in Windermere
Star Rating - 7/5/2009
I've spent the last 5 years in Windermere Fl. and 31 years in the state of Florida. Windermere is a small town set amongst the Butler Chain of Lakes. It has it's older section of homes in the quaint downtown district and some beautiful guard-gated communities where you can find the likes of Tiger Woods and many Orlando Magic players. Crime is low and you are literally minutes from Disney World. I can see the Magic Kingdom fireworks display from my front yard every evening. Summers are hot and sticky but the Winter/Sring season is a welcome relief with cold fronts sweeping in from the Northeast. I can actually get some use out of my fireplace, believe it or not. Education wise, Florida is never on the top of anyone's list. That is why I homeschool. Nothing like those great schools with some history and a solid foundation that you will find up North. There are always some sacrifices to make wherever you choose to live. I'm not sure if I'll put down permanent roots here or not. In the three decades that I have lived in Florida, starting from Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, Boca Raton and the Orlando area, I can say without a doubt I have witnessed so much change in the State and not all for the better. So, that is why I'm here, searching for... well, I'll let you know when I find it.
