It just so happens that Longwood is in the heart of the State of Florida and just a short drive away from what is very likely one of the most visited tourist destinations in the world, the Orlando Metro Area.  Longwood prides itself on remaining a family oriented community, despite its growth over the years. The area encompasses several country club developments as well as more moderately priced homes for families just starting out. Longwood is the address for many of the upscale neighborhoods off  Markham Woods Road as well as the golf communities of Sweetwater Oaks, Sabal Point, and Wekiva; all highly sought after because of the established neighborhoods, amenities, and excellent schools.  Natural  lands and trails abound offering hiking, biking, camping, fishing and many other outdoor activities.  This is just a taste of wht the City of Longwood has to do for visitors and residents alike.
