About The City of Lake Mary, Florida:
Lake Mary may be only 30 minutes from Orlando and 45 from Daytona Beach, but residents have plenty of shopping, restaurants and events in their own backyard. There are lakes for boating and fishing, and the Timacuan golf course lies in the center of town. Recreation is one thing, but jobs keep Lake Mary humming.
Lake Mary in Central Florida is considered a relatively new city in Seminole County, but in fact, Lake Mary has been around since the 19th century. The city started with 2 tiny settlements both of which were located along the railroad that connected Sanford and Orlando. Lake Mary did not become an incorporated city until August 7, 1973 even though the chamber of commerce was established in 1923.
Originally considered citrus & agricultural based, Lake Mary has transformed itself into a city with many upscale communities, notably Heathrow Club which was started by fast food giant Polucchi in 1985.
Nicknamed "the Little Silicon Valley," Lake Mary is home to an industrial park of computer software companies. On weekdays the population rockets from less than 15,000 to more than 35,000 as commuters arrive. On weekends, Lake Mary keeps residents together with community activities such as farmers markets, local artists' booths, and a 24-screen theater.
Lake Mary has been listed in Money Magazine's "Best Places to Live" listing of America's best small towns multiple times since the survey began in 2005:
2006 Top 100 rank: 86
2007 Top 100 rank: 4
2009 Top 100 rank: 96
This area was hammered by the housing downturn -- home prices have dropped some 30% from their highs.
