Longwood, FL, United States

Longwood is a suburban city north of Orlando, in Seminole County with a population of over 14,000 people.  It is the home of The Senator, the biggest and oldest pond cypress tree in the world, and a very popular tourist spot.  Unfortunately, it was burned down in 2012.  Established in 1878, Longwood has enjoyed continual population growth, and in 2014 the City received recognition as one of the 4 safest places to raise a family in Florida.  Longwood’s charm lies in the eclectic mix of modern homes and historical homes, new neighborhoods and old majestic neighborhoods rich with local historic tales.  Top rated schools, beautiful lakes, and the accessibility to malls, shops, local restaurants, and all major roads continues to make Longwood a desirable location for those moving to Central Florida.  Most recently Longwood was named  as one of the top 10 best places to live in Florida.
