Re: Discuss what its like to live in Davenport
[quote:258da1ee12="NULL"]Discuss what its like to live in Davenport[/quote:258da1ee12] Davenport is a great place to retire because it is only 20 minutes from Disney and 30 minutes from Orlando airport just off of I-4. It is an area close to everything but not in the middle of all the congestion. Del Webb Orlando is a great place to live in a 55 plus gated golf community. If you want more info email your address and phone number to susan@thetropicalsunteam.com for a brochure and more info.
