Eagle Pointe - Visiting the Attractions and Travelling Around
Eagle Pointe is a quiet part-residential community built around two lakes. The community offers a mixture of one and two-storey vacation homes set within a wooded conservation area. Some homes offer lakeside views.
With two nearby public courses in Kissimmee - catering for all levels and offering excellent value for money, Eagle Pointe makes a great place to stay for the early-morning golfer. Travel towards US192 for the PGA rated Falcon's Fire, as well as the Celebration and Hawk's Landing golf courses which border Walt Disney World.
For essentials, the ever popular WalMart located (next to Medieval Times on US192) is just under 3 miles. However, being close to US192, a couple of miles up from Walmart there is a Supertarget 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.
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, Ruby Tuesday 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?

Eagle Pointe is located around 3.5 miles south of highway US192 (the main road through to Kissimmee). The most straightforward driving route to Walt Disney World will be Poinciana Blvd through to the Lake Buena Vista area. For Universal Studios, SeaWorld and the International Drive area, head for Interstate 4 then north towards Orlando. Orlando International airport is accessible from Interstate 4, the SR417 Florida Greeneway and the Beachline Expressway SR528. These also provide a route to Kennedy Space Center and Cocoa Beach. For the Gulf coast and Busch Gardens, head for Interstate 4 then south towards Tampa. For Legoland Florida, head south on highway US27 at the intersection with Interstate 4.

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.
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.
