Calabay Parc at Tower Lake - Visiting the Attractions and Travelling Around
A newer Calabay Parc gated community offering an array of luxury villas, some with views over Tower Lake and others within a few minutes walk. For the fishermen (and women) there is a fishing pier and plans for a community clubhouse - where you will be able to swap fisherman's tales. For golfers there is the Southern Dunes County Club and course which borders the community and lake, so no excuses.
When staying towards Haines City, expect a more rural, less glitzy feel - which can be a big plus to many visitors. Restaurants will not be as busy at peak times, prices should be cheaper and yet all the parks and attractions are accessible by heading north on Interstate 4.
Shops and restaurants are located more towards Haines City, with a local WalMart, Winn-Dixie and Walgreens Pharmacy all less than 2 miles away. Here you will also find Quiznos, T-Bones steakhouse, Beef O'Bradys, Taco Bell, Burger King, MacDonalds and a Chinese buffet amongst other eateries.
When heading towards the parks and Interstate 4, the newly opened Posner Park shopping outlet is located around 10 miles north of the area (just south of the junction with Interstate 4 and US27). Here you will find major retailers including a JC Penney department store, Michaels, Target, Ross, Dress for Less, as well as eateries and a British tavern. In case of emergency, the local medical walk-in centre and regional hospital is less than a mile away.

Calabay Parc at Tower Lake is located on highway US27, around 7 miles south of the intersection with Interstate 4; which also offers the most straightforward driving route to Walt Disney World and Kissimmee. For Universal Studios, SeaWorld and the International Drive area, head for Interstate 4 and then north towards Orlando. Orlando International airport is accessible from Interstate 4 and the Beachline Expressway SR528. This is also the route to Kennedy Space Center and Cocoa Beach. For the Gulf coast and Busch Gardens, head south on Interstate 4 towards Tampa. The new Legoland Florida is further south on US27.

Driving distances are taken from Google Maps and reference a central starting point in the community. When quoting distances to Walt Disney World Resort, these are not taken to the 'gates', but are representative of the actual distance to the specific attraction. Driving distances are not biased to any villa community.
The Davenport area is set south of the Orlando attractions, but benefits from purpose built, newer developments in conservation areas. The offset of this is that shops and restaurants may be limited, with a car being essential. That said, the area is a must for golfers, with so many fantastic courses in the area to choose from. With Interstate 4, US27 and SR17/92 routes all available, access through to the attractions, shops and restaurants is straightforward.
