Nestled among dozens of lakes and dotted with parks, Casselberry, Florida, is a vibrant community that celebrates art, history, and its cultural diversity. Just 10 miles from downtown Orlando, this city offers its 26,000 residents easy access to all the activities and attractions that make Central Florida famous but also serves as a quiet, community-oriented oasis from the action. Discerning homebuyers will appreciate the wide variety of ranch-style and split-level single-family homes that range from the cozy to the grand.
Casselberry first sprung up as a sparsely populated agricultural town and has blossomed into a thriving city of bustling business districts and tranquil residential areas. Celebrating its 75th Anniversary in 2015 with a yearlong program of special events like the Latin Jazz Festival and the Food & Wine Festival, Casselberry embraces art and culture across the community on a daily basis. The Casselberry Art House, tucked away in a park-like setting on Lake Concord and splashed with colorful murals, offers classes and cultural programs like concerts and artist lectures. City Hall displays the work of local and international artists in an ever-changing series of quarterly exhibits. The park system includes small neighborhood parks, a dog park, recreation centers, and a public pool.
Casselberry is a place where the whole family can thrive. It’s a part of Seminole County, whose public school district boasts a continuous "A" rating from the Department of Education and is ranked #1 in Florida for the percentage of its budget spent in the actual classroom. Casselberry is also home to the Central Branch of the Seminole County Library, which hosts book clubs, a crochet club, and a community page on GoodReads. The Chamber of Commerce, whose motto is "Promoting Prosperity," supports dozens of local businesses and civic organizations, including magazines, construction contractors, health care providers, and restaurants. While suburban Central Florida certainly has what it takes to satisfy chain-restaurant lovers, locally owned favorites include Cuban, Greek, barbecue, and sushi restaurants, and there’s a monthly Food Truck Bazaar. Farther afield, Greater Orlando is accessible by a variety of Lynx bus routes, and nearby Interstate I-4 makes a jaunt to the beaches or Cape Canaveral quick and easy.
