More About Altamonte Springs: Located at one of the most heavily traveled intersections in Seminole County, the crossroads of Interstate 4 and State Road 436, Altamonte Springs is a short 15-minute drive from downtown Orlando and about a half hour from Orlando International Airport.

In addition to being a well-populated residential area, it is also a major shopping destination as home to the 1.2 million-square-foot Altamonte Mall. The mega mall has about 160 stores where consumers will find a wide array of goods and brand-name retailers such as Abercrombie and Fitch, Banana Republic, Coach Inc. and New York and Company. And while it is the main draw, the mall is by no means the only option for shoppers in the city. Other major retail centers include the Marketplace@Altamonte, West Town Corners, Renaissance Center, Oak Grove Shoppes and Altamonte Crossing. Complementing the retail sector is a business hub that includes offices and commercial space, hotels and a bounty of restaurants.

Meaning “high hill” in Spanish, Altamonte is home to more than 43,000 people and it continues to expand. Most recently, the city has focused on creating a 1,375-acre central business district around Cranes Roost Lake. Development has occurred quickly on a 25-acre site known as Uptown Altamonte, a mix of residential units, retail shops, offices and a heavy concentration of restaurants and entertainment venues that form the heart of the new district. Like many of the newer developments in Central Florida Uptown Altamonte is designed to be a self-contained community where families can live, work and play.

The outdoor town center is a gathering place with green spaces and a synchronized water fountain, a centerpiece of Cranes Roost Park, which has developed around the lake. It offers recreational space and amenities such as a mile of walkways, restful areas with benches and the Eddie Rose Amphitheater with stadium-style seating and a floating stage. It’s just one of several parks in Altamonte Springs. Others include Sunshine Park, Lake Lotus Nature Park, Merrill Park and recreational amenities such as the Lake Orienta public boat ramp and the Lake Brantley Sports Complex.

Naturally, the area is served by a number of public and private schools; there are four public elementary schools, a middle school and a high school. A handful of colleges also have branches there including Seminole State College of Florida.
