welcome to Sanford

A River Runs Through It

Tucked away on the shores of Lake Monroe (the navigational head of the St. Johns River), Orlando’s charming neighbor to the north is always reinventing itself with new restaurants, shops and experiences. Conveniently located roughly halfway between Orlando and Daytona Beach, Sanford serves as the seat of Seminole County and charms residents and visitors alike with the ambiance of 19th-century buildings, a pristine waterfront and a walkable Magnolia Square.
