Thousand Oaks is a peaceful community of just over 200 houses in cul-de-sacs and bordered by woodland conversation (predominately majestic oak and pine trees) and natural lakes. The community offers holiday villas from 3 to 6 bedrooms, so caters for visitor parties of all sizes. Staying in Thousand Oaks will provide relaxation from the parks and shops - especially if you take time out for a woodland walk to watch the wildlife or pass time fishing in one of the lakes.
The nearest supermarket for those everyday essentials is Publix, which is located just under 2 miles away at the intersection of South Orange Blossom Trail and Ronald Reagan Parkway. There is also another Publix supermarket and 7-Eleven located a little over 2 miles away towards Reunion. Along with a number of adjacent eateries and smaller shops, these are mid-way between the community and the ChampionsGate junction with Interstate 4. Carry on towards ChampionsGate (on CR532) for more shops. If you are looking for the nearest WalMart, then this is in the other direction towards Kissimmee on highway US192 near to Medieval Times.
For more eateries, head north from Thousand Oaks towards highway US192 for the expected abundance of shops, restaurants and local attractions.

ChampionsGate / Loughman - Local Map and Villa Communities
Located south of the prestigious Walt Disney Reunion resort, the communities around ChampionsGate are some of the newer vacation home developments. With purpose built resorts surrounded by fantastic golf courses, lakes and open woodland, the area is fast becoming a must-stay location. However, as the area is still growing, local shops and restaurants are likely to be limited, which means a car is a must to get around.
