Appropriately situated next to the Walt Disney World Resort, the always sunny city of Kissimmee, Florida, is a veritable American utopia, combining welcoming communities and exceptional schools with endless amenities and the finest in entertainment. Remarkably affordable homes in the area range from well-furnished 2-bedroom condos to beautiful single-family houses that are continually appreciating in value.
The Storey Lake gated community offers resort-style living almost right next door to Disney World and all of the many attractions that nearby Orlando has to offer. Amenities for the whole family include a playground, swimming pools, a variety of sports courts and even areas for golfing. The Mirasol neighborhood in Celebration to the west offers luxurious condos in one of the most idyllic suburbs in America. Fashioned after small towns of the early 20th century, the community features schools and workplaces within walking distance. A short stroll will also bring you to downtown Celebration and its many quaint boutiques and eateries. Further west, the Grand Palms community in Four Corners features quiet condos with an emphasis on comfort. Palm trees and classic lampposts charmingly line the streets, while tennis courts, fitness centers and swimming pools are great for keeping active. World-class entertainment is, of course, only minutes away, with U.S. Route 192 providing quick access to Disney World.
With Disney World located so close, the Walt Disney Company is one of the anchors of the Kissimmee economy, putting approximately 3,700 people to work. Other resorts and theme parks in the region also employ many workers from Kissimmee, tourism and leisure serving as one of the area’s main industries. These attractions have continued to spur growth and development, and the city further provides incentives for projects and businesses in a number of targeted sectors, including manufacturing, aeronautics, renewable energy and life sciences. The area is also noted for its educational facilities. The School District of Osceola County employs over 6,000 people, roughly half of them teachers, in schools across the entire county. Thousands more find employment in retail and healthcare.
