Destination guide

A Florida getaway in Altamonte Springs

Hankering to meet Mickey Mouse and experience the thrills and spills of Hollywood-themed rides, but prefer to make your base outside of Orlando itself? Altamonte Springs vacation rentals could be just the thing. There’s a number of options for your home-away-from-home, including spacious family residences and quirky pads decked out in 50s-style retro fittings. And, while you’ll be only around a 30-minute drive from the big theme parks, Altamonte Springs itself is a charming city to discover, thanks to its sun-spangled green spaces and buzzing shopping opportunities.

Things to do

Get your adrenaline pumping near Altamonte Springs

If you fancy combining a day of shopping with great eating and entertainment, it’s worth making time for Altamonte Mall. As well as being filled with big name stores and fashion boutiques, it also features steakhouses and Cajun grills, as well as a movie theater. Chances are, though, you’ll be heading south to the big, iconic attractions around Orlando – from the towering, fairy tale spires of Disney’s Magic Kingdom, to the blockbuster-themed experiences of Universal Orlando, which will bring out your inner A-lister. With wildlife safaris and nightly parades also ready to be enjoyed, there’s a reason why this is one of the greatest vacation destinations on Earth.


Immerse yourself in Uptown Altamonte Springs

After you’ve arrived at your Altamonte Springs vacation rental, unpacked, and settled in, you can get acquainted with the city in the buzzing quarter known as Uptown Altamonte. This area encompasses the sparkling Cranes Roost Lake, which is surrounded by a serene walkway – the perfect place to promenade on a lazy afternoon. The area also features a European-style plaza, cobbled lanes, and seating areas where you can enjoy the atmosphere of Cranes Roost Park, which looks particularly idyllic at dusk. The independent shops, bars, and eateries all help make Uptown Altamonte an enjoyable place to hang out and mingle with the locals.

When weighing up the best times to book Altamonte Springs vacation rentals, it’s worth knowing there’s no wrong time to visit this region. The theme parks are always ready to welcome you into their magical realms, and if you can be flexible with travel times and come during the spring and fall shoulder seasons, you can benefit from lower rates and fewer crowds. That said, there’s an undeniable excitement about plunging into Orlando in the peak of summer, when the buzz is infectious and the sunshine spills down over everything.
