Sanford town, Orlando FL

Description

Sanford is a cute town on beautiful Lake Monroe. It has a lively main strip with cafes along 1st Street, and a long palm tree-lined promenade along the lake on Seminole Blvd. The promenade runs two miles from near the corner of W. Seminole Blvd and Mangoustine Ave all the way east to the corner of E. Seminole Blvd and Mellonville Ave. It passes Fort Mellon Park, with a gorgeous fort playground that big kids love. Next door to Fort Mellon Park is Sanford Museum, a history museum. You also pass Veterans Memorial Park, which juts out into the water and is lined with wonderful canary palms, and filled with interesting birds. Here you can read about many different wars and Sanford's role in them. The views over the water are wonderful. There are benches where you can sit and watch the boats bobbing on the water. There is plenty of palm-shaded grass where you could have a picnic by the water. 
1st Street, the main strip in Sanford, is two blocks back from Seminole Blvd. Here you will find many cute cafes. A super fun thing to do in Sanford is eat at Hollerbach's Willow Tree Cafe, especially when they have live oom pa pa music making you feel like you're really in Germany! On New Year's Eve you can get your festive feeling without waiting till midnight, since Germany celebrates at 6pm our time! Hollerbach's does the countdown to the new year at 6pm!
Along 1st Street there is an ice cream shop called Wondermade, an Irish pub called Sullivan-A Public House, a tropical bar and grill called Breezeway, a cocktail bar with great ambience called The Imperial at Washburn Imports, and plenty more places to choose from. 1st Street is lit up beautifully at Christmastime.
Central Florida Zoo and Botanical Gardens is another fun thing to do in Sanford.
On the north side of Lake Monroe is the town of Deltona, where you can check out Lakeshore Drive and the Lake Monroe Boat Ramp, plus Green Springs Park
