Not all resorts and villas are the same - one major factor is their
location. Terra Verde is a rare new resort close to Disney and all
the other Orlando area attractions. It is situated on Poinciana
Boulevard leading right to The Osceola Parkway that zips you straight
into Walt Disney World.
Seaworld and Universal amongst others are also just a short drive
away. Convenient too for shopping including the factory outlets
and superb Florida and Millennia Malls it is going to be difficult
to fit everything into a single vacation!
Within a minute or twos drive are all your favorite restaurants
including The Olive Garden, Macaroni Grill, Chillis, The Outback
Steakhouse, Uno's, and not forgetting Denney's and IHOP for breakfast
or your good old diner fare. Our personal favorite is the Cheesecake
Factory at Millennia Mall which is only about 15-20 minutes away
- you have to remember to leave room for the Lemon Raspberry though!
Nearby is Krispy Kreme, one of the worlds fastest growing chains
- you have to watch how they make the donuts even if you can resist
For added convenience we are only a mile or so from 'Super Wal-Mart'
for groceries and about everything else you could want. See the
links page for a link to the Hwy 192 guide to restaurants, shops
The coast is within easy reach and only about an hour away. On the
Gulf side are the fantastic beaches and attractions like Busch Gardens,
on the Atlantic coast is the famous Cocoa Beach and the Kennedy
Space Center at Cape Canaveral. Although the Shuttle program is
sadly currently suspended, the Air Force still has an active launch
program of Atlas rockets - a night launch is particularly spectacular.
See our links page for details of the Nasa/JPL website. Port Canaveral
is also home to Caribbean cruises if you are planning a two center
vacation. A little further up the coast is Daytona home of the famous
Golf is a very popular past-time
in Florida and there are numerous golf courses to suit all
abilities and budgets within easy reach of Terra Verde. Champions
Gate at Davenport, Disney Golf off the I4 and Falcon's Fire
courses are just a few.
