Cumbrian Lakes - Visiting the Attractions and Travelling Around
Community / Resort Pool
A small private gated community of landscaped gardens, situated on the south side of Poinciana Boulevard (off highway US192), towards the intersection with Orange Blossom Trail. Cumbrian Lakes is a peaceful community, with numerous lakes and nature trail walks to view the bird-life and wildlife that frequent the area. For the children, there is a play area, so a great excuse to bring out the sandwiches for a relaxing picnic.
If you are looking to visit the Saturday Night Cruise at Old Town, this is just over 6 miles from Indian Point. Also, if you enjoy animals, then you are in for a treat. Literally opposite the community is the Green Meadows Petting Farm. An excellent day out from the parks and an ideal place for letting the children get up close with farm-yard animals and even milk a cow!
For essentials, the ever popular WalMart located next to Medieval Times on US192 is around 3.5 miles away and accessible through back-door routes. However, if you are looking for variety, a couple of miles further up from Walmart there is a Target supermarket and around 1 mile further along US192 (at the junction with SR535) is a Publix supermarket. There are also numerous shopping outlets on the US192 and the larger Lake Buena Vista outlet towards Walt Disney World on SR535. With so many shops to choose from, rainy days will never be so much fun!
Eateries are equally abundant, with dozens of family-favourite restaurants located with a couple of miles of the Poinciana Boulevard-US192 junction. These include: Smokey Bones, Olive Garden, IHOP, Chillis, Chevys, TGI Fridays and Longhorn Steakhouse (to mention but a few) - choice maybe your only dilemma! For something different, what about a themed night out - watching knights at the nearby Medieval Times banquet meal or Capone's buffet?

Poinciana Boulevard - Local Map and Villa Communities
Like many routes that branch off of the US192 highway, Poinciana Boulevard provides the main thoroughfare between the theme parks, shops and restaurants to the established villa communities that border it. Head along it for a couple of miles and you feel like you are in the countryside. Recent widening improvements to the road and better street lighting now make this a more palatable drive and an excellent base for visitors to the area. South of the junction with Orange Blossom Trail is the approach to the city of Poinciana. This is very much the southern side of Kissimmee, with big houses and lots of conservation lakeland.
