Seminole County is ideally located in beautiful Central Florida, just 25 miles from downtown Orlando, and less than an hour’s drive to world-class beaches along the Atlantic Ocean. The County is part of the Orlando-Kissimmee-Sanford Metropolitan Statistical Area and is the third most densely populated county in the state. 

Home to seven incorporated municipalities, including the county seat of Sanford, Seminole County has an exceptional quality of life that includes a mild year-round climate, 344 square miles of lush tropical foliage, 2,000 fresh-water lakes and rivers, and diverse wildlife that offers the classic Florida experience of enjoying peaceful rivers, fishing, boating, hiking, and more. Just a short drive from all the major attractions of Central Florida, Seminole County offers excellent accommodations, fine dining, upscale shopping, superb golf courses, and state-of-the-art sports facilities and training complexes.
