The Conway Chain of Lakes is located between Downtown Orlando and the International Airport, making it the most convenient Chain of Lakes for Orlando professionals. The chain has nearly 1800 acres of clear water and a hard sandy bottom. It comprises four interconnected lakes with canal access between them and some side canals supplying neighborhoods with lake access.
Having lived on Lake Conway for 12 years, Brad and Scott have exceptional familiarity with it from both a real estate and an entertaining perspective. It is so convenient to be minutes from the Downtown business hub, the international airport, a significant level four trauma center hospital, and of course, just 12 miles or so to Disney World and the other World Class attractions in Orlando.
A Unique Neighborhood
Conway has a unique neighborhood feel since there is a wide variety of homes and communities encompassing the Chain of Lakes. You have everything from multi-million dollar lakefront homes to the original 1950’s house with a one-car carport. The harmony is incredible, and it is Old Orlando at its best and is a truly wonderful place to live.
There always needs to be clarity about what the four interconnecting lakes are called. Here is my version. Lake Gatlin is connected by a canal and has its own name, so that is easy. Little Lake Conway is the two northern ponds separated east and west by a narrow pass. Then south through a canal to Big Lake Conway, which is 1.5 miles across, and then you go south under the Belle Isle Bridge to South Lake Conway.
Canal And Lakefront Properties
The Lake Conway Chain of Lakes is one of Orlando’s most famous lakefront communities. Like the Windermere/Butler Chain of Lakes and the Winter Park Chain of Lakes, the Lake Conway Chain has a rich history and features some of Central Florida’s most valuable waterfront properties.
