Just 20 miles northeast of the attraction-intensive city of Orlando, Oviedo retains a rural feel. In fact, it’s famous for the chickens that still roam freely through the city’s historic downtown. Oviedo’s roots date to 1865, when homesteaders settled along the shores of Lake Jesup. Today, it's a growing city that steadfastly maintains its small-town feel: airboat rides, a farmer’s market that offers local produce on the first Saturday of every month. Oviedo, within an easy drive of Central Florida’s mega-attractions, has it all.
