Dr. Phillips

Dr. Phillips,while technically not a city, has become such a populated location that has its own designation. It is located in the southwest portion of Orange County, between Interstate 4 and Apopka-Vineland Road.  This very desirable area was named after Dr.Phillip Phillips, a Central Florida citrus magnate who was influential in developing several innovations in the packaging and processing of orange juice.  The Dr. Phillips area is also know as the Sand Lake area, and one of the most popular attractions is “Restaurant Row.”  The portion on Sand Lake Rd between I-4 and Apopka Vineland Rd has some of the most desirable restaurants attracting many tourists and locals alike.  Just minutes form all  the Orlando theme parks, and International Drive, the Dr. Phillips area has become THE destination to spot.
