Florida is known as the Sunshine State, and it is noted for being home to much natural beauty; what many people don't know is that the state is the only place in the world where alligators and crocodiles coexist in the wild. It is things like that which make the state unique--and make it such an interesting place for those who enjoy the outdoors.
The beautiful community of Hunters Creek, Orlando, Florida first arose in large part in the 1980s and 1990s. However, the population continues to grow and thrive with new parts of the community being added. In 2011, CNN's Money magazine ranked it number 21 on its 100 best places to live in the U.S., which confirmed what its residents already knew.
Hunters Creek is a community that boasts a high quality of life. Part of the community's appeal is its outdoor spaces. Luscious residential lawns, beautiful parks, and numerous lakes provide for a pleasant area in which to live and that makes for an excellent area for visitors as well.
With its beautiful green spaces, the community is an excellent place for those raising families. This extends as well to being served by many quality schools for students ranging from kindergarten to twelfth grade. At the elementary school level, Hunters Creek is served by four public schools: Hunter's Creek Elementary School, Endeavor Elementary School, West Creek Elementary School, and John Young Elementary School. Those four schools feed into the two middle schools of Hunter's Creek Middle School and Freedom Middle School.
For those looking for a different path, Renaissance Charter School at Hunter's Creek is another option. The well-ranked tuition-free school serves the educational needs of students in grades K-8.
Students from Hunter's Creek and Freedom Middle Schools as well as some from Renaissance typically spend their secondary school years at Freedom High School. The school was established in 2003 within the Orange County School District, and its name reflects the school's patriotic spirit. Currently, it educates more than 3,000 students and offers programs such as dual enrollment, advanced placement, an Academy of Hospitality, and Early Childhood Education Academy.
Hunters Creek is also conveniently located close to many colleges. More than two dozen institutions of higher education call the greater Orlando area home--making the community ideally situated for students pursuing higher education or community members who are just seeking to enjoy a range of athletic and cultural event opportunities.
The community is both a great place to live and a fun place to visit. Hunters Creek is home to, or conveniently located near, several tourist attractions.
Hunters Creek is located less than 15 minutes away from the state's most popular tourist attraction: Disney World. Of course, that is not the only lure for tourists to the region. SeaWorld, Legoland, and Fun Spot America are also some of the wildly popular highlights in Orlando.
Along the boundary of the Hunter Creek community, there is the 110-acre theme park, and wildlife preserve Gatorland. The park is known as the "Alligator Capital of the World," and it is home to thousands of alligators and crocodiles. Its breeding marsh will, of course, look familiar to fans of Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.
For golfers, a big draw to the community is the Hunter's Creek Golf Club. This 18-hole, par 72 course. This golfing opportunity serves to appeal to both residents of the community and tourists alike.
What unites many of the popular attractions in the region is the draw to the outdoors. Whether heading to a theme park or the local park, Hunter Creek residents and visitors alike have a lot of reasons to head outside.
