Legacy Club at Alaqua Lakes
Legacy Club at Alaqua Lakes is an 18-hole golf course in Longwood that Tom Fazio has praised as among his best efforts. The golf course opened in 1998. Legacy Club at Alaqua Lakes was carved around a dense forest of lush, mature trees with spectacular topography, dramatic slopes, rises and knolls unique to Florida. The Legacy Club is certified as an Audubon International Signature Certified Sanctuary golf course.
Seminole Wekiva Trail
Running along the former line of the Orange Belt Railway, the Seminole Wekiva Trail offers a peaceful alternative to the busy streets of Altamonte Springs. This popular, well-marked, 14-mile route is one of Seminole County’s showcase trails. From Altamonte Springs the trail begins across a pleasant wooden bridge at the San Sebastian Prado trailhead. The first 7 miles traverse quiet residential neighborhoods and lush woods; the trail then shifts from rural relaxation to suburban bustle and skirts the International Parkway business corridor. The trail leads east to a pedestrian bridge over I-4 before joining the Cross Seminole Trail. The final 4 miles of the Seminole Wekiva mirror the peaceful wooded areas that began the trail. At trail’s end, the Markham Road trailhead offers ample parking and restroom facilities.
