Acadia Estates - Visiting the Attractions and Travelling Around
An exclusive gated community of just 32 large executive villas with private pools located in the Formosa Gardens area (opposite where Splendid China was located). Built around a single road, Acadia Estates offers 4 to 7 bedroom rental homes with multiple master bedrooms and high specification options.
For golfers visiting the area, there are a number of excellent courses available, including Mystic Dunes and Orange Lake Resort.
Head towards highway US192 for the local Formosa Gardens Village shopping complex. This is around 1 mile away and has a Winn Dixie supermarket and pharmacy, walk-in medical centre, liquor store and a selection of other shops (including an ATM cash machine). The nearest Publix supermarket is under 3 miles at the Rolling Oaks shopping complex on US192. There is also a Super Target supermarket opposite. Alternatively, if it is WalMart you are looking for, this is around 6 miles away on US27 - north of the US192 intersection. If you are heading east on US192, there is also another WalMart on SR535 opposite the Lake Buena Vista shopping outlets.
Closer to home, for eating out, there is a selection of restaurants and eateries, which include an Outback Steakhouse, Red Lobster, TGI Fridays, Giordano's Italian restaurant, as well as both a Chinese take-away and Japanese sushi bar. For quick snacks, there is also a Subway, Taco Bell and Dairy Queen.
Heading onto US192 towards Kissimmee, you will find countless shops and liquor stores, along with restaurants for eating out and an almost equal number of themed crazy golf to work off the meal!
