A cozy suburb minutes from high-end shops, restaurants, and theme parks
Hunter’s Creek is a small community of 20,000 south of Orlando. Centered between Lake Buena Vista and Buena Ventura Lakes, with Kissimmee to its south and Orlando to the north, Hunter’s Creek is a great location for residents to have access to all of Central Florida’s best attractions. Laid-back and suburban, Hunter’s Creek offers more of an authentic Florida vibe, with hiking available at the Shingle Creek Trail and the Osprey Park Trail.
A short drive can take Hunter’s Creek locals to nearby golf courses like Falcon’s Fire or to some great retail therapy at the Mall at Millenia. A bit further of a drive gets them to places like downtown Orlando, Cocoa Beach, and the Kennedy Space Center. With a little bit of everything, Hunter’s Creek is truly a gem within Central Florida.
Locals love the serene and peaceful vibe of Hunter’s Creek. Though it's close to some of the most popular areas within Central Florida, Hunter’s Creek remains a separate community with delicious eateries and ample opportunities to get outdoors.
For dining, you can’t beat Gator’s Dockside or Miller’s Ale House. Both serve hearty American fare in a sports bar setting and are loved for their outstanding service and range of options. At Gator’s, locals love the Monte Cristo sandwich and the Cajun alfredo pasta. At the Ale House, it’s the classic zingers or a basket of fish and chips. For something a little different, Mikado Sushi serves excellent Japanese food, with a great balance of sushi and sashimi dishes.
For entertainment, locals visit the Regal at the Loop or the Osceola Performing Arts Center. Live music is enjoyed at the Tavern at the Creek on South John Young Parkway. Residents can also make the 9-mile drive over to Lake Buena Vista’s Disney Springs for 103 shopping spots, 66 incredible diners, and plenty of attractions for the whole family, from carousels and animation shows to holiday festivities.
Local shopping areas include the Hunter’s Creek Promenade, the Hunter’s Creek Plaza, and the Loop. Residents can head to The Florida Mall for some retail therapy as well.
Gatorland is by far one of the best things to do in Hunter’s Creek. Only a few minutes from town, Gatorland has been a landmark attraction in Central Florida since the late 1940s. In true Florida fashion, Gatorland allows visitors to get up close and personal with exotic wildlife, from Florida alligators to parrots and macaws. Patrons can feed hundreds of gators in the gator pond or watch a demonstration. In addition to Gatorland, Hunter’s Creek is only 20 minutes from both Walt Disney World and SeaWorld and 25 minutes from Universal Studios.
When it comes to simple outdoor recreation, locals in Hunter’s Creek can’t beat a trip to Eagle Park or Osprey Park. Both feature sports fields, playgrounds, and picnic areas, with the latter connecting to a great hiking trail. Hunter’s Creek residents are also only an hour away from the coast, with Cocoa Beach and Cape Canaveral directly east.
For indoor entertainment, Hunter’s Creek isn’t far from the Museum of Military History, which began as a way to pay tribute to veterans of the Vietnam War. The Museum of Illusions and other Icon Park attractions are also nearby along International Drive. To hit the greens, those in Hunter’s Creek can stop by the Shingle Creek Golf Club or the Four Seasons Golf and Sports Club by Disney.
