Calabay Parc at Tower Lake, US27 (South) / Haines City
A newer Calabay Parc gated community offering an array of luxury villas, some with views over Tower Lake and others within a few minutes walk. For the fishermen (and women) there is a fishing pier and plans for a community clubhouse - where you will be able to swap fisherman's tales. For golfers there is the Southern Dunes County Club and course which borders the community and lake, so no excuses.
When staying towards Haines City, expect a more rural, less glitzy feel - which can be a big plus to many visitors. Restaurants will not be as busy at peak times, prices should be cheaper and yet all the parks and attractions are accessible by heading north on Interstate 4.
Shops and restaurants are located more towards Haines City, with a local WalMart, Winn-Dixie and Walgreens Pharmacy all less than 2 miles away. Here you will also find Quiznos, T-Bones steakhouse, Beef O'Bradys, Taco Bell, Burger King, MacDonalds and a Chinese buffet amongst other eateries.
When heading towards the parks and Interstate 4, the newly opened Posner Park shopping outlet is located around 10 miles north of the area (just south of the junction with Interstate 4 and US27). Here you will find major retailers including a JC Penney department store, Michaels, Target, Ross, Dress for Less, as well as eateries and a British tavern. In case of emergency, the local medical walk-in centre and regional hospital is less than a mile away.
