When travelling on US27, there is the busier section south of the US192 and the quieter north section. Greater Groves is approximately 2 miles north of the US192. As an established community, Greater Groves is a mixture of both residential and vacation homes and offers well maintained, spacious properties in a conservation area. For the active visitor, there are tennis courts, a large community pool (both accessible only by residents and guests), basketball courts and a children's play area. This combination of family friendliness and excellent properties makes it a popular choice with major UK tour operators.
Golfers are in for a treat as well, considering the vast number of courses in the area - including the Lloyd Clifton designed Legends and Kings Ridge.
Access through to Walt Disney World Resort has been improved, with the new western route - which means there is no need to join the mainstream traffic on US192. For Seaworld, Universal Studios and the International Drive area, Interstate 4 is likely to be your preferred route.
Travelling around a mile south on US27 is the local Publix supermarket, with adjoining shops, a post-office, smaller supermarket and pizzeria. Carry on a little further towards the junction with highway US192 and there is a WalMart Supercenter. Adjacent to WalMart, there is a Blimpie Subs & Salad, Quiznos sub, Wendys, Taco Bell and a Chinese take-away. Should you need it, there is also a Lowe's electrical superstore on the other side of the road.
For evening meals, a vast number of restaurants can be found on the US192 (towards Kissimmee), however, if you prefer to stay closer to home, there is a Red Lobster, Chilli's, Santa Fe, Sushi Bar, Devenney's Irish pub and a number of pizzerias.

Situated to the west of Walt Disney World Resort, the area is less populated than the US192, yet still offers an array of eateries and shops, as well as the obligatory WalMart and Publix supermarkets.
Heading south towards the junction of US192 (and east along it), the number and variety of shops, outlets and restaurants will certainly increase. For the keen golfers, head a couple of miles further south beyond the junction with US192 for a number of popular and challenging golf courses bordering US27.
