Grand Reserve - Visiting the Attractions and Travelling Around
A private gated community of just over 100 properties situated in the peacefulness around CR54 (on the south side of US27). Properties in Grand Reserve are built around conservation land and lake Thomas, so expect to see the Floridian wildlife, including blue herons amongst other bird-life.
Around a mile and a half or so away is the ChampionsGate area, which has a number of restaurants and eateries including Chilis, La Crepe, Subway, China One (take-away), Pizza Hut, Dunkin Donuts, Wingstreet and other eateries. For finer dining and a relaxing evening, visit the the Omni resort itself.
For those day-to-day essentials, ChampionsGate also has a Publix supermarket, Walgreen's pharmacy and 7-Eleven one-stop shop. If you are heading back from US192, there is also a Publix supermarket and CVS Pharmacy on Old Lake Wilson Road.
Around 8 miles south-west at the intersection between Interstate 4 and US27 is the Posner Park shopping complex offering major stores including JC Penney, Target, Ross, Dress for Less and many more. There are also a selection of restaurants and a tavern near by.

ChampionsGate / Loughman
ChampionsGate / Loughman - Local Map and Villa Communities
Located south of the prestigious Walt Disney Reunion resort, the communities between ChampionsGate and Loughman are some of the newer vacation home developments. With purpose built resorts surrounded by fantastic golf courses, lakes and open woodland, the area is fast becoming a must-stay location. However, as the area is still growing, local shops and restaurants are likely to be limited, which means a car is a must to get around.
