Every place is walk-able, depending on how much time you have!
To give any accurate profile of the area best for you one must know your monthly activities.
My definition of 'walkable' is a community where 80% of your monthly activities can be accomplished without a car and within the physical limits YOU elect.
As an example, a household of 4 consisting of two working adults one pre-schooler and one elementary aged child has significantly different needs than the couple or person in need of frequent medical care.
As an example, a one mile walk to dinner is delightful to many but to others completely unreasonably.
How about bicycle options? Should not 'walkability' have a pedestrian AND bicycle rating?
You may find it beneficial to contact a local real estate professional have have them create a 'Walkablehomes' profile based on your requirements. Then the communities can be identified that are most suitable to you and your objectives. You very likely should explore the economic benefits of these communities and how such choices can have a dramatic impact on your economic future.

Best of success to you,

Hello Robert,

I would say you have two options, either the city like Downtown Orlando where you can walk almost anywhere but distances might be a little long hence the big city, or where I live, Celebration. Celebration is divided into villages and the one that would most fit your family would probably be the Main Celebration Village (where the little town is), East Village or North Village. Living here would give you access to the town, where you will find shops, restaurants, doctor offices, utilities offices, town's fun events, etc. One of the main things in Celebration is Celebration Health, part of Florida Hospital, is one of the best Hospitals in Central Florida, this is where I always take my family to be taken care of and actually where my baby twins were born! I always speak very highly of this town because you don't only get a beautiful and friendly place to live in, but also the community feel to it is just simply amazing, I live here, my kids go to school here and I work here, it is the best town to live in!

In addition, if you live in North Village or Main Village, the Linx bus stop is just a walk away where your wife could hop on and go anywhere she needs to. Oh! Also, you can own a golf cart and just drive around Celebration and even go to Publix (just newly built inside Celebration)! North Village would be the closest village to Publix, where your wife can walk to.

Hope this helps! If you have any other questions, I specialize in Celebration, I can send you some listings and you will be able to have a better idea if it fits your family.

My email is Have a great day Robert!

Well, certianly not the place you are asking about here, Robert. Nothing west of I-4 in the tourist areas would ever be considered walkable in any sense of the word. You need to stay in Kissimmee proper, not the tourist areas. Celebration would also fit, but it will obviously be a lot more expensive. Stay to the east of Hoagland Blvd.
