Sanford is a popular tourist port city in the US state of Florida, with an extremely close proximity to the larger tourist city of Orlando, ensuring that Orlando’s numerous local attractions are no more than a short drive away.


With its typical Floridian climate, the city receives millions of visitors throughout the year, although the general pace of the city can be quite relaxed, as many of these visitors tend to travel into Orlando during the day.

Because of this strong tourist connection, the city enjoys a booming economy and is filled with both modern and more traditional restaurants, bars, shopping precincts and tourist attractions, offering a more relaxed and quieter vacation than that offered by the busier Florida cities such as Orlando and Miami.

Arriving Sanford Airport

Sanford International Airport is located in the district of Sanford, based in the US state of Florida. As one of the 2 primary airports serving the larger city of Orlando, the airport is routinely ranked as one of the top 30 busiest in the world.

Only a short drive from the centre of Sanford, taxi cabs from the Airport to the heart of downtown Sanford can be found for as little as $6-$9.

Sanford airport offers a large selection of facilities, such as shopping outlets, restaurants and even live entertainment 2 or 3 times a week. It also offers free wi-fi access to all of its visitors.

The airport generally deals with standard airport processes such as check-in, customs and baggage collection far quicker than many other Florida-serving airports and car rental queues are easily among the fastest-moving in the state.

Driving In Sanford

As you would expect from a busy Florida port city, Sanford experiences high volumes of tourist traffic and roads are likely to remain busy throughout the day.

That said, the general pace of driving is quite relaxed and the local drivers are well-known for their patience towards tourists and over-careful drivers.

While Sanford offers a reliable public transport system, in reality you will need a rental car to explore all that the city has to offer, particularly if you are also wishing to visit cities such as Orlando or Miami during your visit.

Be sure to have an updated GPS system to easily navigate your route, and you should find driving in Sanford a generally enjoyable experience.
