Altamonte Springs

Altamonte Springs was among the first area in Seminole County to attract growth. As a result, many residential neighborhoods boast towering tree shaded streets, peaceful lakeside living, and a sense of pride in the community.


Among the city’s pride and joy is Uptown Altamonte at Cranes Roost Park. Included in this redevelopment are several eateries, shops, and gathering places that commonly host music concerts, art festivals, classic car shows, karaoke, and holiday gatherings like the Red Hot and Boom Independence Day Celebration which attracts over 100,000 people each year. Cranes Roost Lake is surrounded by a continuous walkway with ample seating and is a pleasure to stroll by day or night. This enjoyable park features an amphitheatre with stadium style seating, a unique floating stage and a choreographed fountain with a water and light show. Nearby lies the Altamonte Mall, one of the largest regional malls in Florida, making this area popular for all. 


The city’s name “Altamonte” is derived from a Spanish expression meaning “high hill”. The area was originally settled in 1882 as Altamonte Station by Boston businessmen who built the Altamonte Hotel on 1,200 acres of land. Residents renamed the town Altamonte Springs after natural springs were discovered in Lake Adelaide. The city was incorporated in 1920 and over the next 50 years, experienced sluggish growth. Due to the Central Florida growth spurt in the 70’s, it eventually prospered into an ideal suburb community of Orlando. The population has increased 55 percent since 1984 and currently totals more than 50,000. 


Altamonte Springs is conveniently located at the intersection of I-4 and 436, providing easy and quick access to downtown Orlando in 15 minutes and the Orlando International airport just 25 minutes away. Major employers in the area include Embarq, AT&T, Florida Hospital, The Altamonte Mall and over 12 hotels. People choose Altamonte Springs as their destination for it’s proximity to everything.
