Catalina Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Catalina is a somewhat older community in the Orlando area. Most of the homes in this area were built in the 1950s to 1960s, but because of the location, many homes are slowly being replaced by more modern homes. Located along Clear Lake, it is obvious that Catalina is all about recreation. In fact, many of the homes near the lake actually have backyard channels that lead to the lake for quick access to the water.
Along the lake sits a small park that shares the name as the lake. Clear Lake Park is one of the most popular destinations for active residents of Catalina. The park provides public lake access to the few residents in the area that don’t already have access to Clear Lake. It is common to find boaters and anglers enjoying the shoreline and the deep water of the lake, especially during the summer months. For those looking to exercise, Clear Lake Park offers some of the best trails in the area. The trails provide an excellent scenic location for walkers, runners, and cyclists to get some exercise.
To the south of Catalina is Interstate 4, providing quick access to some of the most famous attractions not just in Florida, but in the entire world. By simply taking I-4 and following a few signs it is possible to travel to Disney World, Sea World, Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure, and more. For the religious, there is even a theme park called Holy Land that is famous for the recreation of the Bible through live action and rides.
If you prefer shopping, across the Interstate from Holy Land is the Mall at Millenia. This upscale mall features some of the top international designers of high-end merchandise including Rolex, Louis Vuitton, Michael Kors, Betsey Johnson, and many more.
