Known as the “City of Lakes,” Lake Mary Florida is a leafy little town located 18 miles north of Orlando
in Seminole County. The city touts itself as having all the conveniences of Orlando without the traffic
and at least one national publication has taken notice. Money magazine/CNN have ranked Lake Mary
among the top five in its list of 100 best places to live in the United States and the No. 1 small town
in Florida. With a gazebo in Central Park, a public fountain at City Hall, beautifully manicured green
spaces, a community clock tower and an iconic, colorful water tower, it definitely has an atmosphere
that matches the magazine’s designation.

The town has a pristine appearance with modern buildings of distinctive gabled and pillared architecture
and the small-town feeling is evident even in some of the events, like a weekly farmer’s market held in
Central Park.

The city is only about 10 square miles and nearly 11 percent of it is water. The town gets its name from
the wife of a minister who settled on the northern shores of the main lake and although its origins date
back to the 19th century, the city did not incorporate until 1973. It started as a village of two settlements
named Brent’s Station and Belle Fontaine located on the railroad that stretched between Sanford and
Orlando.

The city’s economy was driven primarily by the citrus industry for many years, but like most cities
in Central Florida, Disney’s development in the early 1970s spurred growth throughout the region,
including Lake Mary, and the economy began to diversify further when other companies began to
discover it as a desirable location for their employees to live and work. The Lake Mary Chamber of
Commerce was founded in 1923. Today, because of its location and its appeal among young families
it has been able to attract clean industry such as high-tech companies and it is also headquarters for
Scholastic Book Fairs, a division of Scholastic Corp. WTGL and WOFL, TV stations that serve the Orlando
market, have their studios in Lake Mary.

Lake Mary is also known for having a variety of restaurants to suit many tastes. Among some of the
most popular are Memories of India, Chez Jacqueline, That Deli, Peach Valley Cafe, Amura and Dexter’s.
Colonial Town Park is a popular destination for shopping, dining and movies. There are also plenty
of diversions for recreation: The city’s Sports Complex provides for just about any sport or activity,
including baseball, softball, soccer, tennis and basketball. A skate park accommodates skate boarding,
inline skating and freestyle bicycling, while smaller children will enjoy a splash park and playground.

A number of notable sports personalities have made their home in Lake Mary, including ESPN
broadcaster Lee Corso, professional golfer Chris DiMarco, former Orlando Magic basketball player
Dwight Howard and head coach Stan Van Gundy, as well as professional baseball player Rickie Weeks,
NFL player Keith Rivers and tennis star Gigi Fernandez.
