Finding the perfect home is more than just finding the perfect property. The location of the home not only ensures that you'll be close to everything you need and there will be plenty of things for you to do, but also brings up the value of your home. RedTail is situated in Sorrento, Florida in Lake County with easy access to downtown Orlando, Mount Dora, world-famous theme parks, and more! Access will be even easier and faster with the SR-429 extension set to open in early 2018. So, whether you're a current RedTail resident or are looking for luxury homes in the Orlando area, here are six day trips just a short drive from RedTail you'll definitely want to take!
