Neighborhood Guide: Lee Vista

Delta, Southwest, United and other airlines fly over the Lee Vista neighborhood near the Orlando International Airport daily. Residents have tuned out the jets and live just far enough away from the airport where it doesn't cause a disturbance. Suburbia mixed with apartments and town homes, shopping plazas and car dealerships encompass the Lee Vista area, which has been booming since the '90s and continues to be one of Orlando's fast-growing areas.
