Early welcome to the Orlando area of Lake Nona or as the locals call it Nona.
Nona will soon be one of the top spots in Orlando as it relates to nightlife, restaurants, shopping, parks and so much more, just needed to get the medical infrastructure in place to bring the 30,000 plus jobs and thats in high gear.
For now the good news is shopping is close with Mall of Millenia ( http://www.mallatmillenia.com/
) within a 20 minute drive giving you access to shopping, outlet stores (outside the mall) and fine dining, also you have Florida Mall within 20 minutes with shopping and dining.
You do have a few establishments that are popping up like Wine House Lake Nona, (http://www.winehousenona.com/directions.html
I spend time in the Nona area weekly with out of town buyers and currently i'm looking for a small piece of commercial property, I've seen the changes in the area first hand and can honestly say with my knowledge of the area amenities are on the way.
Hope this helps,
