Sunset Lakes - Visiting the Attractions and Travelling Around
Community / Resort Pool
A small, private gated community, Sunset Lakes offers detached pool homes built around two naturally formed lakes. Both lakes are stocked and can be fished from the bank or small boat. Bird and wildlife spotters will be equally content with what can be seen on and around the lakes. There is also a community pool (with changing rooms and cabana alongside) and a children's play area of swings, slide and themed climbing frame.
Although the Maingate area of US192 does have a number of fast-food and take-away eateries located nearby, there are a limited number of family-favourite restaurants. However, just head 3 miles east on highway US192 for the Formosa Gardens Village shopping complex. Here you will find a selection of restaurants, 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.
The shopping complex also has a Winn Dixie supermarket, pharmacy, walk-in medical centre, liquor store and a selection of other shops (including an ATM cash machine). The nearest Publix supermarket is just over 2 miles away at the Rolling Oaks shopping complex (just off US192). Alternatively, the nearest WalMart is around 5 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.

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. For Legoland Florida, head south on highway US27 at the intersection with Interstate 4.
