Sunset Ridge - Visiting the Attractions and Travelling Around
Sunset Ridge is a gated resort of both residential and rental properties, located just south of the intersection between Interstate 4 and US27. With a mixture of excellent properties, nicely spaced for privacy and some bordering the adjacent lake, Sunset Ridge offers a welcome retreat away from the theme parks and attractions. For golfers, Deer Creek Golf Resort is opposite, with a number of first-rate courses within a 10 mile radius.
As US27 is becoming more popular for visitors to the area, more supermarkets, shops and restaurants are being opened. The recent Posner Park shopping complex - which is alongside the intersection with Interstate 4 - is a good example of this.
Literally opposite Sunset Ridge is the Posner Park shopping centre offering major stores including JC Penney, Ross, Dress for Less and many more. There is also a Target supermarket for those everyday essentials. For snacks and eating out, local restaurants include Perkins, Denny's, Waffle House, Bob Evans, the Shamrock pub and a local pizzeria amongst others. Head for around 4 miles towards the ChampionsGate development and here you will find a Publix supermarket, a number of local restaurants, as well as the Omni Resort hotel - offering fine dining for that special occasion.
Travelling north on US27 for 7 miles and there is another Publix supermarket and shopping complex, with eateries including Applebees, Quiznos, an Indian take-away and a wine & bistro parlour. The nearest Walmart is towards Haines City - approximately 7.5 miles south of the community.

Sunset Ridge is located on highway US27, around 1 mile 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.

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.
