Lifestyle

where the living is easy

Sun, fun, and serenity.

The Glades at ChampionsGate is where luxurious, carefree living meets sun-soaked recreation. Life here is easy, and everything you need is close by. Tour the neighborhood’s many shopping and dining destinations, or take a stroll in its beautiful parks.

The city itself was designed as a premiere sporting destination with ChampionsGate Golf Resort attracting players from across the globe.

When you’re ready for adventure outside the gates, both Orlando and the Everglades are just minutes away. Head to popular Disney attractions or go native with scenic tours that bring you close (but not too close) to the local wildlife.

Whatever your interests, something exciting awaits. And there’s always a pool or cantina nearby to relax at the end of the day.
